If you haven't seen any of the 2014 Oscar-nominated films, like 'American Hustle' or '12 Years a Slave,' have no fear. The folks at CineFix and Mom.me and their talented kid performers have come together to reenact the most praised films of the past year ... except for 'Philomena.' Seems like no one has seen 'Philomena.' (Joking ... sort of.)

Good Will Hunting: Talking 'Nebraska' With Will Forte, Who Might Be the Nicest Guy in Hollywood

Since leaving 'SNL' a few years ago, Will Forte has guest-starred on several TV shows (including a memorable turn as a drag queen on '30 Rock') and had roles in several comedies, including 'MacGruber' -- the movie based on his 'SNL' character, which has cultivated a cult following since its release in 2010. This Friday, audiences will get to see a very different side of the comedic actor in Alexander Payne's 'Nebraska,' a father-son road trip dramedy co-starring the legendary Bruce Dern. In the film, Forte plays David, an aimless stereo salesman who agrees to take his father, Woody, to Nebraska when the latter believes he's won prize money in a sweepstakes.
We had a chance to sit down with Forte to discuss the opportunity to work with Payne and Dern, reuniting with his 'Brothers Solomon' director Bob Odenkirk, and what's next for the 'MacGruber' star.

After a seven year absence, director Alexander Payne returned last year with the exceptional 'The Descendants.' Thankfully, we won't be waiting nearly as long for his next film. 'Nebraska' is going to start shooting in October and Payne has added Bob Odenkirk and Stacy Keach to an already strong ensemble.

Ever since 1999's 'Election,' Alexander Payne's films have been like catnip to the Academy. 2002's 'About Schimdt' got two nominations, 2004's 'Sideways' got five nominations and last year's 'The Descendants' also got five. Payne himself has been nominated five times and has won twice. His next film, 'Nebraska' stars Will Forte and Bruce Dern. Mathematically, this means Forte could be an Oscar contender.
