She’s best known for tracking down long-dormant murder cases on US TV drama Cold Case these days, but Kathryn Morris is negotiating to join the cast of Brad Pitt baseball drama **Moneyball{ =nofollow}.

Morris, seen in the likes of Minority Report and Paycheck, is in talks to play the wife of Pitt’s character, Oakland A’s manager Billy Beane. She’ll share his passion for the game and support him as he launches his ambitious idea to pick a winning team based on technological advice to counter the fact that he has a lower budget than some of his competitors.

Moneyball, which has a script by Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian, has been in and out of limbo as financing and script issues dogged the film, not to mention the sudden departure of original director Steven Soderbergh.

Jonah Hill, Robin Wright, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Stephen Bishop are also all aboard the movie, which Capote director Bennett Miller starts shooting next week in Los Angeles.
