PLEASE COME BACK, CLINT!
We love your directorial forays, be we DEFINITELY love your acting! It'd be great to see you come back for this baseball drama (and maybe direct/star in and adaptation of Old Man Logan?? We can dream!)
The 81-year-old is in talks to star in a baseball drama called Trouble With the Curve, playing a veteran scout with eyesight troubles who talks his daughter into going on the road with him.
Smells like an Oscar if they can cast the daughter correctly!
Here's what the Ol' Badass had to say:
“When I did Million Dollar Baby I thought, ‘Well, this would be a nice one to quit on,’ and then Gran Torino came along. They’re not writing a lot of really great material for guys my age. In lieu of that, I would just prefer to stay behind the camera. But if a great role came along, yeah, I would do that. But actors are like boxers — they stay too long sometimes.”
Maybe this is that role, and we hope it is!
We'd love to see you up there again, Clint.
