The cast of Rod Lurie’s boxing-based drama Resurrecting The Champ is getting even bigger.

Already aboard are Josh Hartnett, Samuel L Jackson, Cold Case’s Kathryn Morris and Alias’ Rachel Nichols.

Now that list has grown to include Alan Alda, who last appeared in cinemas in Scorsese’s The Aviator. He’s also been busy on TV, playing a Republican presidential hopeful on The West Wing.

Lurie plans to kick off shooting in June.

...oozing from this so far. "The Conrendor" was a strong film, and Lurie's current TV hit, "Commander in Chief", is proving compellingly compulsive viewing. That, combined with Kathryn Morris from "Cold Case", which is of my favourite TV shows at the moment, Alda and Sam the Man means I'm getting more and more excited about this one. More
