Clint Eastwood Stars In "Trouble With The Curve" !

We all know that Clint Eastwood doesn't easily quit...

When Eastwood made 2008′s "Gran Torino", hinted he might be done acting altogether and then he was 78 years old then...
But when his longtime cinematic sidekick Robert Lorenz took the helm of the family baseball drama "Trouble With The Curve" (in theaters Sept. 28), the legendary actor was persuaded to step in front of the camera once again with another director behind the camera for the first time in almost 20 years!

Eastwood, now 82, stars as Gus, an aging Atlanta Braves scout with vision problems whose daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), reluctantly agrees to be his eyes on a crucial recruiting trip.

John Goodman co-stars as Pete Klein, Gus’ boss in the Braves clubhouse, who urges Mickey to help her father.

If you follow pro baseball, you know modern scouts rely much more on statistical analysis than just keen eyes and instinct. A younger Braves recruiter (Matthew Lillard) clashes with him over a green power hitter named Bo Gentry (newcomer Joe Massingill), so the veteran embarks on a road trip to follow Gentry and gather more information.

Justin Timberlake plays Johnny, a rival young scout who happens to like and respect Gus. And when they’re on the road together, they can enjoy a little bromance over cigars and beer. Johnny can’t do Gus’ job for him, but he can help smooth out trouble between the father and daughter. Of course, as Johnny develops eyes for her, you can just imagine the older fellow reactions...

What do you think of Clint Eastwood's return to the big screen as well as his collaboration with Justin Timberlake? Are you excited?
