William Hurt to Star in Movie About Iowa City Teen
"Live Like Line," the movie based on Iowa City West volleyball player Caroline Found, has named its second major star.
Just last month, Helen Hunt was tabbed to play Iowa City West volleyball coach Kathy Bresnahan in the film. Today, Deadspin reports Oscar-winning actor William Hurt will play Caroline Found's father in the movie. Found was killed in a tragic accident in 2011.
Filming for the movie is scheduled to begin in August, in Vancouver, British Columbia. The movie's release date in theaters is unknown at this time.
Hurt has been nominated for four Academy Awards and won for Best Actor in a Leading Role in 1986, for his part in Kiss of the Spider Woman. Helen Hunt is also an Oscar winner. She won Best Actress in 1998 for As Good as It Gets.
Danika Yarosh will play Caroline in the movie while Erin Moriarity will play the part of Found's high school teammate and friend, Kelly.
