CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -- Northern Kentucky native George Clooney is scouting locations in the Queen City for his next film, "Ides of March." On the short list of potential film locations is Lunken Airport, Memorial Hall and Head First Sports Cafe.

"The whole airport is talking about it," says Wanda Turner, a bartender at Sky Galley, the restaurant at Lunken.

Airport manager, Fred Anderton, says people with the movie stopped by Lunken to look at the lobby in the terminal building, the back of the building and might even use one of the large hangers as a sound stage for additional scenes.

"They have made several visits, they continue to look at the airport. In fact George Clooney himself had been out here on one occasion looking at the locations here specific to Lunken Airport so we're just wait and see right now," said Anderton.

Things are still up in the air, but the airport hopes it can be utilized and workers are looking forward to catching a glance of the Oscar winner. "He's so good looking, sexy...I would probably, most definitely pass out," says Turner in reference to seeing Clooney at the airport.

"We were excited just because he's from Cincinnati and how good of an actor he is. Everybody was just really excited."
