Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake and other Hollywood MVPs played ball on the red carpet in celebration of the opening of "Trouble With the Curve," the baseball drama that finds an aging scout (Clint, of course) going for one last inning before retirement — and reconnecting with his daughter (Adams) in the process. Timberlake is on hand to throw some fast balls at the situation as a fellow scout and Adams' love interest.
Check out our collection of pics from the premiere and take yourself out to "Trouble With the Curve" when it hits theaters on Sept. 21.
Clint Eastwood is the last, lonely representative of a mythical breed — the badass. Oh sure, there are other tough-guy actors out there (Stallone, Schwarzenegger and other assorted Expendables) but they're all a little too oiled, chiseled and ready for their Men's Health cover shoots.

"A computer doesn't know if a player has instincts!" We take it the writers of "Trouble With the Curve" don't believe in "Moneyball."
Clint Eastwood plays a somewhat softer version of his "Gran Torino" character (he only yells two or three times and gets into only one bar fight in the trailer) in this tale of a going-blind baseball scout who reunites with his somewhat estranged daughter (Amy Adams) while on one last assignment. Meanwhile, she falls for dad's younger colleague (Justin Timberlake), who introduces her to the joys of doing crazy things like jumping into lakes in the middle of the night. Get More »
It's almost hard to believe, but with the conclusion of Sunday's Academy Awards, this year's awards race is now officially over -- and the race to the 2013 Oscars has officially begin.
While it's obviously premature to guess who will be walking up to the podium next year to accept their golden man, we figured you'd like an idea of the likely contenders.

The "In Time" star has scored himself a new role as he's set to join Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams in "Trouble With the Curve," according to Deadline.
"Curve" stars Eastwood as a going-blind baseball scout who goes on a road trip with his daughter (Adams) in search of one last superstar before retiring. Timberlake will play Johnny Flanagan, a former player and rival scout who falls for Adams (how could you not be a talent agent of some sort with a name like "Johnny Flanagan?"). Get More »
