'Nebraska' sneak peek: How June Squibb landed the role of Kate Grant
Nebraska tells the story of a father (Bruce Dern) who, after receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, believes he’s struck it rich and convinces his son (Will Forte) to join him on a road trip to accept his new fortune. Directed by Alexander Payne, the film received multiple Oscar nominations, including a Best Director nod for Payne, another for Best Picture, and acting nominations for star Bruce Dern and supporting actress June Squibb, who plays Dern’s wife in the film.
