The tipster who led police to the killer of a Hollywood publicist last year is suing to collect the $125,000 in reward money that he has been unable to get from the two men who offered it.
Festival chairman Harold Matzner said Friday that Clooney is "a consummate actor, director, producer and screenwriter (who has) demonstrated that no discipline within the film industry is beyond his reach."
He said Clooney is being honored for his performance in "The Descendants," in theaters Friday, and for writing, producing, directing and starring in "The Ides of March," which opened last month.
