Ivan Reitman’s Draft Day may have already started shooting, but it’s still adding new cast members, as Smallville star Tom Welling has joined the movie, according to Deadline.
In the movie, Kevin Costner plays the general manager of the Cleveland Browns, who tries to trade up to get the top pick in the NFL Draft. Tom Welling will play veteran NFL quarterback Brian Drew, who is at a crossroads in his playing career. Jennifer Garner, Ellen Burstyn, Denis Leary, Frank Langella, and Chadwick Boseman also star.
Ivan Reitman is directing from a screenplay by Rajiv Joseph, which landed the top spot on the Black List last year.
It’s good news for Welling, who had great success with Smallville, but hasn’t been in a movie since The Fog and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 in 2005, although he did recently shoot a supporting role in the upcoming drama Parkland.
