Tierney up for some Moosesport

Seems there might be a movie career waiting for Maura Tierney if and when she leaves ER. She’s apparently in talks to join "Moosesport" opposite Ray Romano and Gene Hackman. The Intermedia-produced project penned by Tom Shulman centers on a former U.S. president (Hackman) who retires to a small Northeastern coastal town. There, he is implored by his new neighbors to fill a mayoral seat that has become vacant. To keep things honest, a local hardware store owner (Romano) runs against him, only to see the race turn into a full-scale battle. The Hollywood Reporter says Tierney will star as the longtime girlfriend of Romano’s character.
