Alexander Payne, the notoriously selective director of 2004's wine aficionado flick 'Sideways,' is finally ready to get back in the action. Payne's latest, to be released Dec. 16, is 'The Descendants,' a comedy starring George Clooney.

In this first clip from 'The Descendants,' we don't learn much. We see a polo-shirted Clooney running through a suburban neighborhood to ask one question: "Who is he?"

In 'The Descendants,' Clooney plays a man who feels the need to reconnect with his two daughters after his wife is in a boating accident. It also stars Judy Greer, Matthew Lillard, Rob Huebel and Beau Bridges.
