"Cold Case" Star Kathryn Morris Scores "Moneyball"

Movie News

Former "Cold Case" lead Kathryn Morris is heating up since switching casting agencies this past April. In her first move since signing with the Gersh Agency, she is in negotiations to star in baseball drama "Moneyball" for Sony Pictures, according to Risky Business.

Morris will play the second wife of the lead character, Oakland A's general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt). She loves baseball as much as her husband, so she understands and shares his passion for the game.

Bennett Miller directs the film, which stars Pitt, Robin Wright, Jonah Hill, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Stephen Bishop. The script was written by Steven Zaillian and Aaron Sorkin and will shoot some scenes at Oakland Colliseum over the summer.

Morris is a solid actress, and I think a role like this could be a breakout part for her. She was always great on "Cold Case" and she also has been solid in supporting roles in “Minority Report,” “Resurrecting the Champ” and “Paycheck.”

The book "Moneyball" by Michael Lewis was fascinating, even for people who aren't baseball fans. With such a great cast and excellent director like Miller in place, "Moneyball" is a project to look forward to.

Filming kicks off in Los Angeles next week.

    Good for Kathryn. Loved her on Cold Case and find her charming on talk shows. Look forward to seeing this film--great cast and Aaron Sorkin to boot!
