Hey Hollywood star watchers, get ready for some big-time stars to hit Massachusetts this week as George Clooney heads to the area to film scenes for a new movie.

Clooney, aka, two-time winning Sexiest Man Alive, will be in Worcester along with Ben Affleck, to film Amazon Studios' "The Tender Bar," a film by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer J.R. Moehringer, that tells the story of a fatherless boy and his road to how he got his start as a news assistant at The New York Times in the mid-‘80s.

Clooney is also the director of the movie.

Filming is expected to be done inside the old Commerce High School building, which also served as the state Department of Children & Families office.

Earlier scenes for the flick have been shot in Boston, Beverly, and Watertown, among other places.

But just because filming is going on inside doesn't mean you won't be able to catch glimpses of the stars perhaps walking in the area or dining.

And, Clooney, who is a "regular-type" guy, took some time off on Monday, April 5 from filming in Wakefield to greet fans and pose for a few selfies.

The crew is expected to be in Worcester on Wednesday, April 7, and beyond.
