Jeff Daniels has come aboard the CBS Hallmark Hall of Fame telefilm Sweet Nothing in my Ear. According to Variety, Marlee Matlin will also be appearing in this Joseph Sargent original drama.

The two actors will be playing a married couple with a six-year-old son that has lost his hearing at the age of four. The marriage is strained when Daniels plays with the notion of fitting his son with cochlear implants.

The film will begin shooting next month in Los Angeles.
