Trailer Watch: ‘Trouble with the Curve’ Shows Off Eastwood’s Comedic Chops — His Last Starring Role?

Trailer Watch: 'Trouble with the Curve' Shows Off Eastwood's Comedic Chops -- His Last Starring Role?

Check out the new trailer for Clint Eastwood-starrer “Trouble with the Curve,” about an aging Atlanta Braves scout (Eastwood) who, despite his failing eyesight, remains determined to take one last recruiting trip. Eastwood’s longtime producing partner, Robert Lorenz, makes his directing debut. Luckily, his star, reprising his “Gran Torino” attitude, could help in a pinch.

“Trouble with the Curve,” written by Randy Brown, co-stars Amy Adams as Eastwood’s daughter, Mickey, who reluctantly agrees to help him scout. Matthew Lillard, John Goodman and Justin Timberlake, as a rival scout who takes an interest in Mickey, also have supporting roles.

The film releases September 21 (the same weekend Brad Pitt’s “Moneyball” opened last year), via Warner Bros. But keep your eyes peeled on Telluride — this Oscar-friendly flick could have an early debut there.

Clint Eastwood is not the first iconic Hollywood star to continue working after reaching 80. But he's one of a select few, the others being Bob Hope (born in 1903, still working as an actor in 1988); James Cagney (born in 1899, appearing on movie screens last in 1981 and TV in 1984); Katharine Hepburn (born 1907, last worked in 1994); and Bette Davis (born 1908, last worked 1989). Any others? I'm surely forgetting somebody.

Barbara Stanwyck was 79 when she did her last TV work. Jimmy Stewart made his last TV appearance when he was 78. Henry Fonda made his last movie when he was 76. John Wayne filmed THE SHOOTIST when he was 68. Spencer Tracy made it to 67. Gary Cooper was 60 when he died. Clark Gable 59. Humphrey Bogart made it to 57. Errol Flynn was 50, Tyrone Power 44.
