Robert Duvall is the latest name to join the cast of David Dobkin’s upcoming comedy drama The Judge. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the Crazy Heart star will play father to Robert Downey Jr.’s character.
The film finds Downey as an attorney returning to his hometown for his mother’s funeral. Although Duvall’s character is the town judge, he’s also the only suspect in his wife’s murder and Downey’s character must balance years of estrangement and emotional distance in his effort to uncover the truth about what really happened.
Duvall, who was recently on the big screen in Jack Reacher, can next be seen in Emilio Aragón’s A Night in Old Mexico.
The Judge will be produced by Dobkin, Susan Downey and David Gambino.
