‘Walkaway Joe’ Trailer: Jeffrey Dean Morgan Gambles In The Poolhalls Of Life

It may be a while before fans of Jeffrey Dean Morgan see him again as Negan on The Walking Dead. Fortunately, he keeps plenty busy making smaller films like Walkaway Joe. The road movie takes a son through the poolhalls of America in search of his absent father. The film is directed by Tom Wright, with David Strathairn and Julian Feder co-starring.

SYNOPSIS: WALKAWAY JOE is the story of an unlikely friendship between a young boy searching for his father in pool halls across the country, and a wandering loner hiding from his past. In each other they experience the power of a second chance, and a shot at redemption.

Walkaway Joe hits digital and VOD on May 8th.
