With Friday's opening of "Ocean's Twelve," the sequel to 2001's heist-fest "Ocean's Eleven," it would seem logical to infer that the movie would have 12 stars.

Wrong, there are 14. Here's a look at "Ocean's" 14:

● George Clooney

- The former "ER" star plays ringleader Danny Ocean.

● Brad Pitt

- The "Fight Club" alum stars as Rusty Ryan.

● Matt Damon

- You may know him as Jason Bourne or good Will Hunting, but the "Ocean" crew calls him pickpocket Linus Caldwell.

● Catherine Zeta-Jones

- We saw that she could sing and dance in "Chicago," and now Zeta-Jones plays a polished detective, Isabel Lahiri.

● Andy Garcia

- The mob-film veteran is Danny's rival, ruthless businessman Terry Benedict.

● Don Cheadle

- The ubiquitous character actor plays explosives expert Basher Tarr.

● Bernie Mac

- He's Mr. 3000, but also handy with safe-cracking abilities as Frank Catton.

● Julia Roberts

- A very pretty woman, the new mother of twins plays Danny Ocean's wife, Tess.

● Casey Affleck

- Ben's little bro plays Virgil Malloy, transportation expert and brother to Turk.

● Scott Caan

- James' son plays Virgil's sibling, Turk Malloy.

● Vincent Cassel

- The French star mixes things up as wealthy Euro-playboy François Toulour, also known as the Night Fox.

● Eddie Jemison

- He was in "The Punisher" earlier this year, and now he's computer geek Livingston Dell.

● Carl Reiner

- Wealthy businessman Saul Bloom is played by the old-school comedy writer.

● Elliott Gould

- The Gouldster plays Reuben Tishkoff.
