Huston Street's brother, Juston, is in Richard Linklater's new college baseball movie

Richard Linklater -- the director of 2014 Best Picture nominee "Boyhood" -- is back with an informal sequel to his coming-of-age film "Dazed & Confused," and this time, it's all about baseball.
"Everybody Wants Some" is billed as a film about "a group of college baseball players [navigating] their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood."
Linklater actually puts baseball to work as Huston Street's brother, Juston, has a role in the film. The role isn't much of a deviation for Juston, who played college ball for the Texas Longhorns and later played Class A ball in the Athletics' system.

The star of the movie, Tyler Hoechlin, has a rich baseball background himself. Hoechlin played infield at Arizona State and Cal Irvine and represented the U.S. in the Pan-American games. The "Teen Wolf" star also briefly played a Cubs prospect named "Owen Scott" on the TBS sitcom "My Boys":

It's not Linklater's first brush with baseball on film, either. A scene in "Boyhood" featured footage from two different Astros games in which Jason Lane homered.

Catch Street and Hoechlin in Linklater's "Everybody Wants Some," which hits theaters on April 1.
