John Goodman is returning to the baseball diamond. According to Variety, the actor is set to join Clint Eastwood in the upcoming sports drama, “Trouble With the Curve.”
Goodman, who once portrayed New York Yankee great Babe Ruth in the 1992 film “The Babe,” will play a longtime baseball scout in “Curve.” The film follows Eastwood, another scout, who takes a road trip with his daughter (Amy Adams) to discover a hot prospect. Justin Timberlake — who Goodman stars with in the upcoming Coen Bros. film, “Inside Llewyn Davis” — will play Adams’ love interest.
Goodman is currently starring in probable Oscar-winner “The Artist.” “Trouble With the Curve” is currently slated for a September 28 released date.
