<p>During an interview with the stars of the Hollywood&rsquo;s latest anti-capitalist screed, <em>Money Monster</em>, on Friday&rsquo;s NBC <em>Today</em>, correspondent Keir Simmons summed up the plot of the film: &ldquo;In the movie, <strong>[George] Clooney is forced to wear an explosive vest by British rising star Jack O&#39;Connell. Who lost his dead mother&#39;s money on stocks.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Clooney plays a financial journalist with a uncanny resemblance to CNBC <em>Mad Money</em> host Jim Cramer and is held hostage by a man attempting to get answers about why he lost all his money in a bad investment. Simmons noted: <strong>&ldquo;This guy is a terrorist, who you end up feeling sympathy for.&rdquo;</strong></p>
