It’s good to see Laura Linney is in talks to play Tom Hanks’ wife in Warner Bros.’ “Sully,” directed by Clint Eastwood. It will be her third teaming with Eastwood after Mystic River and Absolute Power.
She joins a cast that now features Aaron Eckhardt who will play Sully’s co-pilot.
Looking to keep his film and television slate filled, “Entourage” star Jerry Ferrara has also landed a key role in Eastwood’s film.
Ferrara has always wanted to act for Eastwood. He read for parts in “Jersey Boys” and “American Sniper,” but neither panned out for him. Though he had missed out on past Eastwood pics, the director had always liked Ferrara and hoped to find a part for him.
