Adam Goldberg will co-star with Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly in Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment’s “A Beautiful Mind.”
The casting marks Goldberg’s second collaboration with helmer Ron Howard, who previously directed the actor in “EDtv.”
Pic is based on the true story of Nobel Prize-winning and schizophrenic mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr. (Crowe). Goldberg will portray Nash’s fellow Princeton student, mathematician and colleague between the ages of 24-70.
Pic is produced by Brian Grazer and written by Akiva Goldsman. Production begins March 26 in New York.
Goldberg has completed Castle Rock Entertainment’s suspense thriller, “Salton Sea” opposite Val Kilmer, which is scheduled for release late this year by Warner Bros. Pictures.
He has also wrapped Julie Davis’ romantic comedy “All Over the Guy,” and he recently completed his latest screenplay, “I Love Your Work,” which he plans to direct.
