George Clooney in Talks to Star in The Descendants

George Clooney Descends on Yet Another Role

I haven't been shy about how excited I am about George Clooney's upcoming box office takeover, and the hits just keep on coming. Clooney is in talks to star in The Descendants, a dramedy that follows a rich family man (Clooney) who tries to prevent his family from falling apart by taking his daughters on a trip to find his wife's lover. Alexander Payne will direct the film, which is based on the Kaui Hart Hemmings novel of the same name.

Clooney has had a well-rounded career to say the least, and I'm looking forward to seeing him in a role that showcases his talent as a serious actor as well as his charm and comedic timing. Plus, we haven't seen him in a ton of doting dad roles (other than One Fine Day which holds a special place in my heart). I'm excited to see Clooney tap into his emotions to bring us a different side to the bachelor than what we see in interviews and on red carpets.

Are you excited for more Clooney, or are you feeling a bit overwhelmed with Men Who Stare at Goats, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Up in the Air all slated for release in the next few weeks?
