Jason Reitman -- Up In the Air

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- Director Jason Reitman wasn't always a famous movie director. He tried to get out of the family business by becoming a doctor, but the lure of Hollywood finally got him. So now, the son of famous director Ivan Reitman is doing movies of his own -- and he's pretty good at it. Right out of the gate, he picked up an Oscar nomination for "Thank You for Smoking." And then there was the little film that made it big -- "Juno." Now Reitman has a new one coming out in December called "Up In the Air," starring George Clooney.
