Full-Length Trailer for Baseball Drama 'Spaceman' with Josh Duhamel
"I ain't ready to write my memoirs yet, I am ?" Filmbuff has unveiled the new full-length trailer for stoner baseball drama Spaceman, about the true story of baseball player Bill "Spaceman" Lee, who was a big-time advocate of marijuana. A very nicely-bearded Josh Duhamel plays Bill Lee, and the cast includes Ernie Hudson, W. Earl Brown, Sterling K. Brown, Carlos Leal, Peter Mackenzie and Emma Rose Maloney. The first teaser trailer for Spaceman didn't show too much, but this trailer gives us much more to work with, and it seems like an amusing and entertaining tale of stoner-dom. Lee actually pitched in the two games during the 1975 World Series for the Red Sox. This seems like a perfect movie for a Sunday afternoon.
Here's the new full-length trailer (+ poster) for Brett Rapkin's Spaceman, direct from Filmbuff's YouTube:
From the executive producer of Bull Durham and White Men Can't Jump comes the film Spaceman, the mostly-true story of former all-star MLB pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee. In the twilight of a long career as one of baseball's all-time great eccentrics, Lee (Josh Duhamel) is cut from the Montreal Expos in 1982. Though Lee finds himself blackballed by the rest of the league for his outspoken politics (his views being "somewhere to left of Che Guevara") and notoriously enthusiastic drug use, he refuses to quit the game. As of 2016, he still hasn't. Spaceman is both written & directed by American filmmaker Brett Rapkin, who has been making other sports docs for years including the documentary Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey previously. Filmbuff will launch Spaceman in theaters starting on August 19th late this summer. Anyone?
