He soon won minor roles in television shows such as The Facts of Life, Roseanne, and The Golden Girls. His first major role was on the sitcom E/R in 1984—not to be confused with his star-making role on the NBC drama ER, which began ten years later. While still on ER, he appeared in a number of films, including From Dusk til Dawn, One Fine Day, and Out of Sight. He also succeeded Val Kilmer as Batman, though he appeared only in one Batman film.
Clooney left ER in 1999 and had a spate of box office successes, including his most popular to date, Ocean's 11. In 2005, Clooney appeared in the film Syriana, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. The same year, he was also nominated both for writing and directing Good Night, and Good Luck, and became the first person in Oscar history to be nominated for directing one film and acting in another, in the same year. Clooney is active in a variety of political causes, including the conflict in Darfur, Sudan and fundraising for relief after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. He married Talia Balsam in 1989 but they divorced in 1993. Clooney went on to live with his pet pig, Max, until the pig's death in 2006. Clooney became engaged to British-Lebanese human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin on April 28, 2014, as confirmed by a representative at Alamuddin's law firm Doughty Street Chambers. Alamuddin and Clooney were officially married on September 27, 2014 at Ca' Farsetti. They were married by Clooney's friend Walter Veltroni, the former mayor of Rome.
