At one point, Ben grabbed a hold of his young co-star Daniel Ranieri, looking adorable in his blue suit and white sneakers.

The 10-year-old Brooklyn native grinned with glee as The Justice League action star held him upside down.

George cast little Daniel to play the younger version of J. R. Moehringer, the author of the 2005 memoir upon which The Tender Bar is based.

Clooney got in on the action, playfully pretending to choke Ranieri, who made a memorable appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! back in December.

The trio then posed with the rest of the cast and crew – Matt Newman, Matthew Delamater, Tye Sheridan, Lily Rabe, Julie Rapaport, Christopher Lloyd, and Rhenzy Feliz.

George’s eighth directorial feature – streaming January 7 on Amazon Prime Video – centers on J.R. Moehringer (Sheridan) enjoying a father-son bond with his bartender Uncle Charlie (Affleck).
