Robin Tunney and Sarah Bolger join the cast of sports drama MY ALL AMERICAN. The project is based on the real life relationship between University of Texas coach Darrell Royal and his defensive back Freddie Steinmark whose career was cut short when he learned he had a cancerous tumor that took his leg and ended his career. Aaron Eckhart will star as Royal while Finn Wittrock will play Steinmark. Tunney will play Freddie’s loving and supporting mother, Gloria, while Bolger has been cast as Linda, Steinmark’s high school sweetheart.
Tunney is best known for playing Teresa Lisbon on CBS’ hit procedural “The Mentalist.” She has also appeared in Andrew Fleming’s “The Craft” and “Vertical Limit.” Bolger plays Princess Aurora on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” and has been seen in “The Tudors” and “The Spiderwick Chronicles.” Her upcoming projects include the Jeff Probst helmed drama “Kiss Me” and thriller “Lazarus” about a group of medical students who figure out how to bring the dead back to life.
