Welcome to the Exclusive ‘Ocean's' Club
August 2, 2006

Ante up for an "Extra's" "Ocean's 13" exclusive, courtesy of franchise producer Jerry Weintraub. The movie mogul opened Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon's luxurious inner sanctum, The Ocean's Club, only to "Extra."

Weintraub built the ultra-hip, private poker lounge just for his cast. "This was inspired by Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack," Weintraub said. "Guys that I hung around with all my life who made the original ‘Ocean's 11.'"

 "This is our booze joint over here," Weintraub showed us. "It's a great bar, real New York kind of bar, all the guys love it. This is my drink of choice, Grey Goose orange vodka, which I love."

"And we don't drive after we drink," Weintraub added. "We have cars and drivers."

Jerry also showed us the lounge's poker table, which is a favorite for Brad, George and Matt. 

"The guys all love to play poker," Weintraub said. "Brad liked this most of all. These are great chips that our executive producer had made for us. These are the Ocean's chips."

And just in case the poker and swanky pad aren't enough to make the film's stars feel at home, Weintraub showed us a wall full of pictures of the cast, including Scott Caan, Casey Affleck, Don Cheadle, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Al Pacino, Bernie Mac and Matt Damon.

"A lot of Academy Awards on that wall," Jerry said.

From poker playing to drinking, it looks like the stars of "Ocean's 13" have just the place to relax during their hard days of work.
