Meet Woody Grant. Bruce Dern plays the curmudgeonly man who is convinced he's won $1 million in a sweepstakes in Alexander Payne 's Nebraska. Dern's charming performance in the black-and-white film has already earned him several honors and the best actor award at the Cannes Film Festival in May. At the AFI Fest, where Dern was honored with a special tribute ahead of the film's screening, Payne told THR that the actor was his first choice for the role.
