WATCH: Hollywood's most notorious prankster also just might be the one who's most likely to get away with it: George Clooney. Part 2 of Circa's chronology of Clooney pranks includes take-downs of Clooney's "Ocean's Eleven" co-stars and up-and-coming actress by the name of Meryl Streep.

(Did you miss Part 1, which chronicles Clooney's pranks on Steven Spielberg and Noah Wyle, among others? Well, luckily for you, we've got it for you right here, so you can catch up.)

Many of Clooney's "Ocean's" cast mates have fallen victim to his pranks. One is Julia Roberts.

During the shoot for the 2001 film, Roberts was Clooney's target when he'd balanced a bucket of water atop a door. But, according to People, that plan fell apart when a bellman wound up getting soaked instead.

On the set of that movie or one of its sequels, according to InTouch, Clooney was more successful with a different door stunt when he blocked the exit of Roberts' trailer with some well-placed potted plants. Roberts confirmed to E! News that Clooney pulled off yet another prank while shooting 2016's "Money Monster," but didn't share additional details.

Among "Ocean's" co-stars, Brad Pitt may be the most frequent victim of Clooney's whimsy.

"I've done some terrible things to Brad Pitt," Clooney confessed to talk-show host Graham Norton in 2015. Several times, Clooney sabotaged Pitt's cars with provocative bumper stickers, including one with a marijuana leaf and the phrase "F**k cops." Clooney told Norton that Pitt was pulled over for that one.

Clooney enjoyed a slower burn when he sent stationery emblazoned with Pitt's name.

In the process, Clooney pranked Meryl Streep as she prepped for the 2011 film "The Iron Lady."

After Streep was pegged to play British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher for that movie, Clooney, posing as Pitt, mailed Streep a collection of dialect-coaching CDs and a note: "I thought maybe this would help." Clooney told Norton the gag gift and forged Pitt letter left Streep "very confused."

Confused, but not undaunted. Streep's "Iron Lady" performance yielded her third Oscar win.

Clooney also duped "Ocean's" co-star Matt Damon.
