Clint Eastwood’s production company made Jones County native Donne’ Norman’s year last week when he was chosen to play an extra in filming of Eastwood’s new film, “Trouble With the Curve,” which shot scenes in Macon last week.

They took his name and phone number and said they would contact him if he were chosen.
