Best Baseball Movies To See Before The World Series

23 October 2012 5:44 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

“The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again.” – Field Of Dreams.

No truer words were ever spoken about America’s Pastime. Baseball began this past Spring with 30 teams vying for the chance to become World Champions and now it’s been decided. The San Francisco Giants and Detroit Tigers will play ball in the 2012 World Series. Before the final hurrah of nine innings, stats, bases and 3 strikes you’re out, Wamg has compiled a list of the Best Baseball Movies. Did we leave any in the dugout or are there some that should be sent to the showers? »

John Goodman in Talks to Class Up ‘The Hangover Part III’

16 August 2012 6:00 PM, PDT | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Though he’s had a long and storied career full of great roles both dramatic and comedic, sometimes it still feels like John Goodman is still an underutilized and under-appreciated actor. No matter what movie you put him in, his presence alone is guaranteed to class the production up and serve as one of its highlights. The guy is just that good, and the fact that he hasn’t had a real starring role since the days of King Ralph and The Babe is kind of a shame. Of course, beggars can’t be choosers, so when it comes to watching John Goodman work, us film fans will take what we can get. And though it is a bit bittersweet, Variety has word that this status quo is looking to continue. The latest development in the man’s career is that he’s negotiating to take a small role in The Hangover Part III, which »

John Goodman the Latest and Greatest Recruit For ‘Trouble With the Curve’

8 February 2012 5:06 PM, PST | | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Have you been following the development of this baseball drama Trouble With the Curve? It started out as just a glimmer, a hope. It was maybe the project that would bring Clint Eastwood out of acting retirement. A story about an aging baseball scout who is losing his vision and who is embarking on one last recruitment trip in the company of his adult daughter sounded perfect for an old grizzly bear like Eastwood, and since those first days of maybes the project has developed quite nicely. First it became official, and got a release date of September 28, 2012. Then it started filling out its supporting cast with exciting names. Amy Adams came on to play the role of Eastwood’s daughter, and Justin Timberlake got picked up to play her love interest. This thing was looking like an all-star lineup already. But with news that they’re bringing one of the most underutilized players in Hollywood on »

John Goodman Has 'Trouble With The Curve'

8 February 2012 1:12 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

John Goodman is no stranger to the baseball diamond. He famously put on the pinstripes to portray none other than Babe Ruth in "The Babe" nearly two decades ago. But this time, he's going to be off the field for his next baseball-themed film. The actor has come aboard the increasingly impressive cast of "Trouble With The Curve" starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake. Marking the feature debut of longtime pal and Malpaso Productions partner Robert Lorenz, the Randy Brown penned film centers on an aging baseball scout (Eastwood), who is slowly going blind, on a final trip with his daughter to check out a hot prospect. Adams will play his daughter who is along for the ride, with Timberlake as an ex-pitcher turned scout who tries to woo her. Goodman will play Eastwood's friend and fellow scout, who still believes the fading talent hound has the goods. »
