Goodman Joins Baseball Drama TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE

John Goodman

Though it is intriguing they are casting in order of appearance Clint Eastwood first signed on to the baseball drama Trouble with the Curve. After that, Amy Adams quickly replaced Sandra Bullock as Eastwood’s estranged daughter and recently Justin Timberlake was set to star in his first drama since David Fincher’s The Social Network as a former pitcher and current scout who takes a liking to Adams. Now Variety reports that director Robert Lorenz has enlisted John Goodman to play a character named Pete Klein, who is
an old-school scout and longtime friend of Eastwood’s character who still believes in the man’s ability to spot talent.
Lorenz’s directorial debut with the drama, which was written by Randy Brown has been slated for a September 21st, 2012 release date in the US by Warner Bros. Goodman, who currently star in not one, but two Award-nominated movies — The Artist and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, recently wrapped on Robert Zemeckis’ Flight and Ben Affleck’s Argo. The Big Lebowski star will soon reteam with Coen brothers for their folk music drama Inside Llewyn Davis, which also stars Timberlake.
