Clint Eastwood could act again in baseball drama – AWARDS ALLEY


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Clint Eastwood went out with a bang in “Gran Torino,” leading many (myself included) to believe that was his last acting role.

The Oscar winner stays consistently busy behind the camera – he has “J. Edgar” with Leonardo DiCaprio coming out next month – and has lamented the lack of legitimate roles for 81-year-old actors. But Eastwood might be circling a part in a baseball drama that could shoot next year.

“Trouble With the Curve” would cast Eastwood as a baseball scout who takes his daughter on the road with him, according to Slash Film. Producer Robert Lorenze would direct, after serving as Second Assistant Director on Eastwood’s own “Bridges of Madison County,” “Space Cowboys,” “Mystic River” and more.

“Moneyball” might be luring audiences into theaters, but that doesn’t mean another baseball movie is a guaranteed home run. We’d need to know more about the story, which EW.com says was moved onto Eastwood’s radar when Beyonce’s pregnancy delayed his planned remake of “A Star is Born.”

“They’re not writing a lot of really great material for guys my age. In lieu of that, I would just prefer to stay behind the camera,” Eastwood tells the mag. “But if a great role came along, yeah, I would do that. But actors are like boxers — they stay too long sometimes.”

Will Eastwood give it one more try?
