Jack Reynor has been linked to Casey Affleck's upcoming biopic about baseball player Josh Hamilton.
The Wicklow-born What Richard Did star would take the lead role in the drama, which documents Hamilton's battle with drug addiction and ascent to superstardom in the baseball world.
According to Deadline, Reynor has been chosen for the biopic, which is based on Hamilton's autobiography, after a lengthy search.
Affleck will direct the as-yet untitled movie from his own screenplay.
Reynor can next be seen on the big-screen in Transformers: Age of Extinction, which will be released on cinemas on July 5.
