Actor/director George Clooney’s new film “Monuments Men” keeps getting more big name actors. In addition to Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett and Jean Dujardin, the film has now added John Goodman, Daniel Craig, Bob Balaban and Hugh Bonneville. The film tells the story of a group of art experts picked by the U.S. government to retrieve stolen art from the Nazis.

Sounds like Oscar bait to me, almost like “Argo”.
