2 Clips from Alexander Payne’s NEBRASKA Starring Bruce Dern and Will Forte

Yesterday, we saw the first trailer for Alexander Payne‘s Nebraska.  The film stars Bruce Dern as Woody, a man who believes he’s won a million dollars in a sweepstakes, and plans to go to Nebraska to get it.  Complications arise when everyone in his town believes he’s already a millionaire.  Judging by what I’ve seen so far, I like the look and feel of the movie, and if you’re looking at the Oscar chart, Nebraska‘s small scale currently makes it a stand-out among the big, star-studded dramas.  Two new clips have been released online, and one gives a good look at the comedy (Bob Odenkirk, who plays one of Woody’s sons, getting into a slap fight) and another provides the drama with Dave (Woody’s other son, and played by Will Forte) having a terse conversation with his dad.

Hit the jump to check out the clips.  The film also stars Stacy Keach and June Squibb. Nebraska opens November 15th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Nebraska:

After receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) thinks he’s struck it rich, and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America.
