Matthew Lillard is in negotiations to star opposite Clint Eastwood in Trouble With the Curve

After seeing him in the first trailer for THE DESCENDANTS, I've been wondering why I haven't seen more of Matthew Lillard. He's been one of my favorite actors since I first saw him in SCREAM but it seemed like he never was in much following those SCOOBY DOO movies. After checking IMDB, I realized how wrong I was.

Lillard has been in several films after his appearance as Shaggy. I just think that he deserves to star opposite more people like George Clooney. So obviously I was happy to find out that Lillard is currently in negotiations to star opposite Clint Eastwood in TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE. Lillard would play a fellow baseball scout in the film.

TROUBLE WITH THE CURVE sets Eastwood as an aging scout coping with blindness, on a trip to Atlanta to evaluate a player. Amy Adams is on board to play the role of his daughter.

Extra Tidbit: Does this give hope to resurrect the film career of Freddie Prinze Jr.?

Loved him since Hackers!!

He is one of those actors that you really only wish the best for. He seems like he would be a really nice guy in person and he steals the scenes in everything he is in.

Good for Matthew Lillard. Have never been a big fan of his, but have never disliked him either.

Should make for another great Eastwood flick.

Gran Torino was supposedly Eastwood's last on-screen role, and that film would have been perfect punctuation upon his career. Certainly, it made the concluding statement upon his tough-guy characters.
However, Trouble with the Curve could be another good one. A later and lesser work for Eastwood, a film icon. And, Lillard should contribute well to the project.

Terrific news. Yeah, Lillard is a fun, underutilized actor and was great in "The Descendants." This actually puts "Troubel With the Curve" on my must-see radar already. And I haven't felt that about an Eastwood movie since I was underwhelmed by "Gran Torino."

If you like him just from Scream, check out SLC Punk. Dude boasts some serious energy and charisma. Hope he holds his own next to Clint!
