Alexander Payne’s "The Descendants" has picked up an eclectic supporting cast for star George Clooney.
Clooney stars in the film as a wealthy Hawaiian family man who takes his daughters on a road trip to find the man with whom his critically-injured wife has been having an affair.
The film co-stars Shailene Woodley, Nick Krause and Mary Birdsong.
Payne last directed one of the better segments of the anthology film "Paris je t’aime" but he hasn’t directed a full-length feature since "Sideways" in 2004. "The Descendants" started shooting last week in Hawaii, with an eye towards a late 2010 release.
