This weekend, the Clint Eastwood-starring baseball movie "Trouble with the Curve" opens and we'll just tell you right now: it's not very good. Somehow, it misses the the magic of the game that makes it the nation's greatest pasttime, and tosses in not one, but two third-act twists that are there as lazy devices to wring audience sympathy. But before 'Trouble' starts, it looks like WB is going to show off an early look at next year's baseball movie, and it might be a better investment of your movie ticket dollars.

One of the biggest compliments one could give to the Apatow-era of comedy is the development of talent, often very young and unheralded, from all around the world. Take, for instance, the international ensemble for "Bridesmaids" which featured Americans (Melissa McCarthy, Ellie Kemper), Brits (Matt Lucas, Chris O'Dowd) and Australians (Rose Byrne, Rebel Wilson) side-by-side.

Back in December, it was reported that newcomer Chadwick Boseman would be highlighting the Brian Helgeland-helmed Jackie Robinson biopic “42,” portraying the first black baseball player to play in the Major Leagues. It was surely exciting news for Boseman, as well as for once-reliable actor Harrison Ford, who landed the role of Robinson’s Brooklyn Dodger exec Branch Rickey who initially signed Robinson to the team. It was a role that Jack Nicholson and Robert Redford had reportedly been circling, so it was great for the actor who’s most recent work has consisted of mediocre offerings like “Morning Glory” and “Cowboys & Aliens.”

Of course, everyone wants to work with Jack Nicholson, and while the legendary, 74-year-old actor has slowed down his pace in recent years, that hasn't kept the offers from rolling in. In the past year it has been reported that Stephen Dorff was writing a vehicle for him and Nicholson to do together; Warren Beatty wants him for his gestating Howard Hughes movie, and he's on the shortlist of actors Alexander Payne is going to chat with to lead his brewing father/son roadtrip tale "Nebraska." Well, you can add one more to the list.
