Norcross Resident Lands Role in Clint Eastwood Film -- Norcross Patch
If you watch the new Clint Eastwood movie, keep your eyes open for a pre-teen in a Norcross baseball tee.
Sam Collins, a sixth grader at Greater Atlanta Christian Schools and a Norcross resident, landed a speaking role in "Trouble with the Curve," a movie about a baseball scout who tries to reconnect with his daughter while on his last recruiting trip. The movie stars Eastwood, as the scout; Amy Adams, as his daughter; and Justin Timberlake, as a former baseball player who wants to be a sports announcer.
Collins is featured in a scene with Timberlake about 20 minutes into the movie. Playing as "Kid #1," Collins is a baseball player in a pickup game that takes place in a cow pasture, which was filmed in the Auburn and Winder areas.
