I think that Matt Damon is likely too old for this particular role, and also not the right body type, since Richard Jewell was quite overweight, so I wasn't necessarily supporting that specific suggestion. However, I do think that the movie needs recognizable actors with an established following, since Eastwood''s films as a director only, that are the most well received, like "American Sniper," "Sully," etc. tend to have A-list actors to support them.   
Maybe that's why Jonah Hill has been mentioned, and from what I've read it does sound like it could go to him.

Not having the right body type wasn't a factor for Damon when Clint cast him in Invictus. (Not that I think he would be right for this project, just saying.)

This is very true, but height is much easier to disguise through filmmaking trickery than weight and general build.

No amount of filmmaking trickery could have made the guy on the right look anything like the guy on the left:

You are right, KC. Matt Damon really doesn't physically resemble who he played in "Invictus," and there's more than just a height disparity there. But, if we're being honest, a lot of people felt that Matt Damon was completely miscast in the role, although he did receive an Oscar nomination for his performance.

I thought Damon was actually fine in the part, but I might have felt differently if I were a rugby fan.

I can't really comment on whether or not Damon was right for the part. He certainly wasn't physically, but I wasn't familiar with the person that he was playing, so character-wise, I have no idea. I also don't know who would be a good choice to portray Richard Jewell, or his lawyer, since I'm not that familiar with either. I remember Jewell's name, and that he was wrongfully accused of being the bomber, along with his physical description, but that's about it. Johan Hill does seem like a good choice physically, but I've never really been a fan of his work, and I don't know if he'll re-attach or not now that Eastwood's involved. I am definitely interested in who Clint decides to cast for these roles.

leave it to Eastwood, and he will cast Woody Allen as Richar Jewell. If he wants to.

Sam Rockwell is in talks to join the cast of this film and will be playing Richard Jewell's attorney, a role that was previously going to be played by Leonardo DiCaprio.

I am super hyped. Sam Rockwell is such a talent. maybe the best supporting actor in recent years. A great choice who will shine under Clint's control, again. No doubt.

Rockwell is an amazing actor... I'm glad to see him in this film.  I think he will win the Emmy for best actor in a drama role for Fosse/Vernon tv series where he was great.

Sam Rockwell is definitely a great choice. He’s not really an A list actor but a brilliant supporting actor.
Although I haven’t seen all his movies, I enjoyed some of them: The Green Mile, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
I haven’t seen Vice in which he played President George W. Bush.
He played some crazy and funny characters.
Honestly, I didn’t expect him to appear in a Clint Eastwood film.
So, it could be interesting an interesting challenge.
Now, I’d like to know who will portray Richard Jewell.
I guess we’ll find out soon.

I read somewhere on twitter that filming will begin on 25 or 26 of June in Atlanta. It is 2 weeks from now. Typical Eastwood. Hot Summer days in Atlanta.

That would be cool ! If that was true, the movie could be released in December 2019.
According to IMDb, actor Dexter Tillis will portray a cop.
I didn’t know that actor. He appeared in Selma.

Actually, It was me who put his name on IMDB page as DoP. it's not official yet. But back in February, he said that I will make my schedule free for Clint's next project in the upcoming summer. so I thought he still might be the one to shoot the movie.

Thank you, Saman Moradkhani !
I hope that Yves Bélanger will be able to work with Clint again.
If it was Tom Stern, that would be nice too.
So, which actor will be chosen for the main character, in your opinion ?

One of my greatest unfulfilled desires has been always that someone like Roger Deakins has never worked with Eastwood. or even Hans Zimmer as the composer.

regarding your question, I have to say that this role is totally special. there might be another surprise here just like Rockwell. This role is rich, heavy and juicy material which needs a great actor to portrait.
Marie Brenner describes Richard Jewell as a Forest Gump. So this is not surprising why casting this one has been so difficult. Jonah Hill would be the ideal choice if he was still Jonah Hill from Wolf of wall street.

Jonah Hill is a talented actor but he’s more a co-star than a leading actor.
Isn’t he ?
I enjoyed him in Moneyball and The Wolf of Wall Street.
He was funny in 21 Jumpstreet.
But he’s definitely not my cup of tea.
I have the feeling that the Richard Jewell part needs an actor with more charisma.
Maybe I’m wrong and Jonah Hill will be chosen.
Wait and see :)
