Actor John Goodman has just joined the growing cast of Trouble with the Curve for Warner Bros. and director Robert Lorenz.

The story centers on Clint Eastwood, a longtime pro baseball scout who is starting to lose his sight. He decides to take his daughter (Amy Adams) along on a scouting trip to Atlanta to eye a hot new recruit. John Goodman will play Pete Klein, another scout and longtime friend of Clint Eastwood's character, who still believes in his ability to spot new talent. Matthew Lillard and Justin Timberlake also star.

Robert Lorenz will make his directorial debut in Trouble with the Curve, working from a screenplay by Randy Brown. It isn't clear when production will start, although we reported last week that Warner Bros. issued a September 28 release date.
