Judy Greer joins George Clooney in Alexander Payne's The Descendants
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Judy Greer is one of those actresses that I’m just waiting for her to become a star. I liken her to Emily Blunt in the sense that she’s very beautiful and very talented, but just can’t seem to break through to that next level. Greer will get a little more exposure as she’s signed on to the cast of Alexander Payne’s next film THE DESCENDANTS. We had already told you that George Clooney and Shailene Woodley would be starring in the film. Along with Greer, Matthew Lillard, Beau Bridges and Robert Forster have also just signed on to a cast that already included Nick Krause, Amara Miller and Mary Birdsong.
The film is about a wealthy man that attempts to reconnect to his estranged daughters as he tries to find his wife’s lover. A darker film for sure, but I’m guessing Alexander Payne will be able to get the most out of George Clooney’s subtle charm, similar to what Jason Reitman got from UP IN THE AIR.
