Justin Timberlake, Clint Eastwood praise Amy Adams in 'Trouble With the Curve' Blu-ray featurette -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It’s been a big media blast of a year for Justin Timberlake and Clint Eastwood, from Timberlake getting hitched to Jessica Biel, to Eastwood now-infamously chatting with an empty chair at the Republican National Convention.

But both guys share something in common: this year’s Trouble With the Curve, helmed by first-time feature director (and longtime Eastwood collaborator) Robert Lorenz and starring Eastwood as gruff baseball scout Gus, Amy Adams as his estranged daughter Mickey, and Timberlake as Mickey’s love interest Johnny, a pitcher-turned-scout with an eye towards announcing.

Check out this exclusive video clip, below, from the featurette Trouble With the Curve: For the Love of the Game included in the film’s upcoming Blu-ray combo pack, out Dec. 18, showcasing Timberlake, Eastwood and Lorenz praising a red-haired, feisty, but likable Adams.

TRAILER: Amy Adams plays rough with Clint Eastwood in 'Trouble With the Curve'

Amy Adams may play the first character to ever call Clint Eastwood a coward and live to tell about it.

Her feisty turn opposite the veteran tough guy in the film Trouble With the Curve starts out seeming like a slightly raunchy father-daughter baseball comedy, but — perhaps appropriately — the trailer throws a bend into the plot just when you think you’ve got it figured out.

Check out the trailer for the film, opening Sept. 21, below:  READ FULL STORY

FIRST LOOK: Clint Eastwood back on screen in 'Trouble With the Curve' -- EXCLUSIVE


Clint Eastwood is never out until he says he’s out.

Following 1992’s Unforgiven, the actor and filmmaker ended his storied Western career, and that was years after closing the book on Dirty Harry.

When he made 2008’s Gran Torino, and hinted he might be done acting altogether, and seeing as he was 78 years old then, it seemed very likely. He’d already quit performing for every filmmaker except for one ­ — himself.

But when his longtime cinematic sidekick Robert Lorenz took the helm of the family baseball drama Trouble With the Curve (in theaters Sept. 28), the iconic actor was persuaded to step in front of the camera once again — with another director behind the camera for the first time in almost 20 years.

All right, batter up! Check out the first photos of Eastwood’s return to the screen. READ FULL STORY

'Project X' star Oliver Cooper joins Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake in 'Runner Runner' -- EXCLUSIVE

As the preening teenage reveler Costa in Project X, Oliver Cooper certainly proved adept at getting in too deep — his performance even won him two MTV Movie Award nominations. But now the 22-year-old actor will get a taste of what it really means to go too far, signing on to star opposite Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck in the gambling thriller Runner Runner.

Timberlake plays Richie Furst, a Princeton student who gets pulled into the world of online gambling in order to help bankroll his expensive education. Cooper will play Andrew Cronin, a twentysomething Ivy League computer nerd who gets hired along with Furst to work for Ivan Block (Ben Affleck), an online gambling billionaire who works out of Costa Rica and whose business is even less legitimate than it first seems. “He’s kind of the young guy in this crazy world,” Cooper tells EW.

Coen brothers target Justin Timberlake for 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

Just the other night, Justin Timberlake told David Letterman that he couldn’t seem himself in an old-fashioned movie musical. But what about a Coen brothers music movie? A source close to the production confirms to EW that Timberlake has been offered a role in Inside Llewyn Davis, the Coens’ upcoming film about the 1960’s New York folk music scene. (Variety first reported the story.) Oscar Isaac (Drive) has already been cast as the lead, a struggling musician, and Timberlake could play another folkie who’s romantically involved with a woman, reportedly to be played by Carey Mulligan.

In related casting news, Coen brothers’ favorite John Goodman (The Big Lebowski, Barton Fink) is in talks to join the production, though a deal has not yet been reached.
