There’s a lot to be said for being direct. For being clear. For being concise. For punching people in the face. There’s a lot to be said for being Clint Eastwood.

Also that year, he starred alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley in the biographical drama film Snowden, directed by Oliver Stone, which was released in September. (Source: en.wikipedia.org In 2017, he played a special agent in the action film The Fate of the Furious, and starred in Overdrive, a thriller film which was shot in Paris and Marseille.

Clinton Eastwood Jr. (born May 31, 1930) is an American actor, film director, producer, and composer. After achieving success in the Western TV series Rawhide, he rose to international fame with his role as the "Man with No Name" in Italian filmmaker Sergio Leone's "Dollars Trilogy" of Spaghetti Westerns during the mid-1960s, and as antihero cop Harry Callahan in the five Dirty Harry films throughout the 1970s and 1980s. These roles, among others, have made Eastwood an enduring cultural icon of masculinity. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

In May 1955, Eastwood put four hours' work into the film Never Say Goodbye and had a minor uncredited role as a ranch hand (his first western film) in August 1955 with Law Man, also known as Star in the Dust. (Source: en.wikipedia.org In September 1954, Eastwood worked for three weeks on Arthur Lubin's Lady Godiva of Coventry, won a role in February 1955, playing "Jonesy", a sailor in Francis in the Navy and appeared uncredited in another Jack Arnold film, Tarantula, where he played a squadron pilot. (Source:en.wikipedia.org))

In late 1963, Eastwood's Rawhide co-star Eric Fleming rejected an offer to star in an Italian-made western called A Fistful of Dollars (1964), filmed in a remote region of Spain by a relatively unknown director, Sergio Leone. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

and he was rehired to star in For a Few Dollars More (1965), the second of the trilogy. Through the efforts of screenwriter Luciano Vincenzoni, the rights to For a Few Dollars More and the trilogy's final film, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), were sold to United Artists for about $900,000. (Source: en.wikipedia.org Two months later Eastwood began work on The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, again playing the mysterious Man with No Name. Lee Van Cleef returned as a ruthless fortune seeker, with Eli Wallach portraying the Mexican bandit Tuco Ramirez. The storyline involved the search for a cache of Confederate gold buried in a cemetery. During the filming of a scene in which a bridge was blown up, Eastwood urged Wallach to retreat to a hilltop. "I know about these things," he said. "Stay as far away from special effects and explosives as you can." (Source:en.wikipedia.org))

All three were commercially successful, particularly The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, which eventually earned $8 million in rental earnings and turned Eastwood into a major film star being ranked for the first time on Quigley's Top Ten Money Making Stars Poll in 1968 in fifth place. (Source: en.wikipedia.org Using money earned from the Dollars trilogy, Eastwood's advisor Irving Leonard helped establish Eastwood's own production company, Malpaso Productions, named after Malpaso Creek on Eastwood's property in Monterey County, California. The 38-year-old actor was still relatively unknown as late as a month prior to the film's release, as evidenced by a July 1968 news item by syndicated columnist Dorothy Manners: "The proverbial man in the street is still asking, 'Who's Clint Eastwood?'" (Source:en.wikipedia.org))

By this time, Scott was appearing in a popular Taylor Swift video for her song Wildest Dreams. Since that point, he’s had bigger starring roles in several high-profile films. (Source: www.cheatsheet.com The film Snowden enabled Scott Eastwood to co-star in a true-life spy drama, proving his versatility in the genres he could take on. His role as Lieutenant GQ Edwards in Suicide Squad also put him on the map as a potential lead in the perpetually burgeoning superhero movie genre. (Source:www.cheatsheet.com))

After prominent roles The Fate of the Furious and this year’s Pacific Rim Uprising, Eastwood is ready to take on further film genres and perhaps go beyond just popcorn fare. Will we eventually see him begin to star in Oscar-caliber fare like his father finally accomplished? (Source: www.cheatsheet.com)

Most days you'll find Eastwood here, at his office, doing what he likes to do, what gives his life meaning: work. Or, more accurately, creating. Over the past few weeks, he has been holed up in one of the editing bays here, his six-foot-three frame splayed out in an old brown Barcalounger, working with his editor to finish Sully, the thirty-fifth film he's directed in a career that stretches back to 1955. Sully, which stars Tom Hanks as Captain Chesley Burnett Sullenberger, the pilot who landed his disabled plane in the Hudson River in 2009, is like many of Eastwood's films of late—the story of a man who takes action and does what is right but suffers consequences at the hands of second-guessers.

ESQ: Your movies have similar themes. Sully stands up for his principles against people who want to take him down. And Snowden stands up for an entirely different set of principles. Both films arrive at a time when we are looking for individuals with integrity. (Source: www.esquire.com)

Scott is an extremely famous actor like his father, having starred in several hit films like Flags of our Father in 2006, Invictus in 2011, The Longest Ride in 2015, Overdrive in 2017, Pacific Rim Uprising in 2018 and more. (Source: www.closerweekly.com)

In addition to Clint Eastwood’s new movie coming to the big screen, fans can relive some of his older projects currently on Netflix, including one of his most iconic westerns Outlaw Josey Wales. Or if westerns aren’t your thing, there is also Million Dollar Baby. Million Dollar Baby stars Hilary Swank as a rookie boxer whose tenacity and determination allow her to beat odds that are largely stacked against her. The film, which Clint Eastwood both acts and directs in, released back in 2004 and was a runaway hit at the box office and still remains, to this day, one of Clint Eastwood’s most renowned projects.
