George Clooney is the second of the Ocean’s Twelve to drop out of publicity commitments for the film. The reason: He ruptured a disk in his back, according to his spokesperson, Stan Rosenfield, and was unable to travel. Clooney had been scheduled to appear on Good Morning America, The Daily Show, and Charlie Rose during a weeklong swing through New York City.

Julia Roberts also had to beg off much of her promotional duties for the film after doctors ordered her on bed rest for the remaining days of her pregnancy. Roberts gave birth to twins Hazel and Phinneaus on Nov. 28.

Rosenfield said that Clooney could resume publicity duties as early as next week. Ocean’s Twelve opens Dec. 10.
