'Trouble with the Curve' Trailer: Clint Eastwood Has a New, Sporty Forum for Acting Curmudgeonly
Stepping away from the camera so that he might devote all of his remaining energy into snarling, Clint Eastwood takes a starring role but leaves the directing up to his longtime assistant director/producer Robert Lorenz for the inspirational redemption tale Trouble with the Curve. Eastwood, necessarily, plays a withering, cantankerous old guy, whose rapidly-deteriorating sight is close to costing him his career in baseball scouting. Also playing to type, Justin Timberlake shows up as a cocky but good-natured local, whose charms and shirtlessness are not lost on Amy Adams, Eastwood's estranged daughter, back to help her surly father with his job and perhaps get an explanation as to why he abandoned her, and why he always looks like he's shitting. As ever, Amy Adams delights.
