Out Friday, 'The Ides of March' follows an idealistic political staffer (Ryan Gosling) dragged down a questionable moral path during a presidential campaign by his employers (George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman), his opponents (Paul Giamatti) and even the media. It's that latter institution that gets under Stephen Myers' skin in this new clip from the George Clooney-directed political thriller, when a New York Times reporter (Marisa Tomei) reveals she's got a little too much supposedly-secret information. Will their friendship help Stephen plug the leak? To paraphrase 'Chinatown': Forget it, Jake; it's politics. Watch ahead.

'The Ides of March' is out in theaters on Oct. 7. Check back to Moviefone later this week for more coverage on this Academy Award hopeful.
