With Bruce Dern and Will Forte set as the leads for his black-and-white road trip film Nebraska, director Alexander Payne is now filling out his supporting cast. The film centers on an aging alcoholic father who decides to take a road trip from Montana to Nebraska to collect what he believes to be a million dollar Publisher’s Clearing House prize. His estranged son reluctantly agrees to accompany his father in order to keep him out of trouble.  Omaha.com (via The Film Stage) reports that Mr. Show alum and Breaking Bad standout Bob Odenkirk and veteran actor Stacy Keach (The Bourne Legacy) have now joined the cast.  The site also notes that June Squibb (About Schmidt) is being eyed for a role.

Odenkirk will play Forte’s older brother while Keach is set as one of Dern’s colleagues.  The most recent batch of Breaking Bad episodes was rather Saul Goodman-lite, so Odenkirk’s involvement in Nebraska is welcome news.  Production on Payne’s The Descendants follow-up is set to begin on October 15th, and we can expect to see the film sometime next year.
