John Goodman catches ‘Curve’

Thesp joins Clint Eastwood's Warner Bros. baseball pic

John Goodman is set to reteam with his “Inside Llewyn Davis” co-star Justin Timberlake, as he’s joined the cast of Robert Lorenz’s baseball pic “Trouble With the Curve.”

Clint Eastwood toplines the Warner Bros. film, which finds him playing a baseball scout with vision problems who takes a road trip to Atlanta with his daughter to take a look at a hot prospect.

Amy Adams will co-star as Eastwood’s daughter, while Timberlake was recently cast as her potential love interest, a former pitcher who now works as a pro scout.

Goodman will play Pete Klein, an old-school scout and longtime friend of Eastwood’s character who still believes in the man’s ability to spot talent.

Randy Brown wrote the film, which Eastwood and Lorenz will produce through their Malpaso banner. Michele Weissler will also be involved in a producer capacity, having brought the project to Malpaso. Sarah Schechter will oversee the project for WB.

Goodman is one of a small handful of thesps who currently star in not one but two Oscar contenders — “The Artist” and “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.” Having recently wrapped Robert Zemeckis’ “Flight” with Denzel Washington and Ben Affleck’s “Argo,” Goodman will soon begin filming the Coen brothers’ folk music pic “Inside Llewyn Davis,” which stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Timberlake.

Goodman is repped by the Gersh Agency and attorney Amy Nickin.
