Davidovich slides into ‘Ty’

Lolita Davidovich has been cast as the female lead opposite Tommy Lee Jones in the Warner Bros. historic baseball drama “The Ty Cobb Story.”

Sources said she will play a romantic interest named Ramona, a cigarette girl that Cobb meets in Reno.

No other casting has been announced for the Ron Shelton-helmed pic, about the tough-as-nails Detroit Tigers star of the 1920s. The studio had no comment on the casting.

Davidovich also co-stars in the Mark Rydell-directed Paramount thriller “Intersection,” starring Richard Gere and Sharon Stone, which rolls out Jan. 21.

And she’s appearing with Donald Sutherland in the upcoming indie pic “Younger and Younger,” a turn that got the best actress nod at last September’s Tokyo Film Festival. “Younger” is directed by Percy Adlon (“Bagdad Cafe”).

Shelton previously directed Davidovich in the 1989 Paul Newman starrer “Blaze.”

Among Davidovich’s other screen credits are the Josef Stalin-era drama “The Inner Circle” and the Steve Martin-Debra Winger televangelist pic “Leap of Faith.” Davidovich is repped by International Creative Management’s Toni Howard.
