Hollywood actor Scott Eastwood: through the thorns to the stars
Scott Eastwood is the birth son of legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood. Despite belonging to the famous family, the young man has to build their own career in Hollywood - the famous father practically does not help his offspring. So what success did Scott achieve in his profession by 2017?
Scott Eastwood until the early 2000s. bore the mother's maiden name - Reeves. And in the birth certificate in the “father” column the young man had a dash for the time being.
The thing is, Scott is Clint Eastwood's bastard son. 30 years ago, a Hollywood star had a fleeting affair with an attractive flight attendant. At that time, the director was officially married, so he did not consider it necessary to recognize his paternity.
Eastwood Jr. was born in 1986, grew up on sunny Hawaiian islands. After school, went to Los Angeles to receive higher education in the field of communications.
Eastwood Sr. did not recognize his son only officially, but in fact he communicated with him and even took with him to the shooting. Scott began his acting career precisely because he was used to the atmosphere of the set from childhood. General recognition of the young man had to wait almost 10 years.
The beginning of film career
Scott Eastwood first appeared on screen in the military drama "Flags of Our Fathers". The director of the film was Clint Eastwood, and the producer was Steven Spielberg.
However, the star father did not trust his son even as a supporting role: Scott had to be content with an episodic appearance on the screen. The painting “Flags of Our Fathers” was twice nominated for an Oscar and won several prestigious film awards. The beginning of Scott's acting career was laid.
A year later, the young man took part in the filming of the crime drama "American crime", playing a small cameo role. The plot of the film was based on real events that occurred in Indiana in the 60s. Then the touring artists Lykens entrusted the maintenance of their daughters to a certain Gertrude Baniszewski, for a fee, at the time of departure. Banishevski took the money, but she treated the children cruelly.As a result of the beatings and bullying, the 16-year-old daughter of the Likens, named Sylvia, died.
Then there were the films "Pride", "Player 5150" and "Gran Torino". But Scott was still only a supporting actor.
Scott Eastwood: movies with the main role
Eastwood Jr. took the first major role only in 2015, practically 10 years after the start of his career. George Tillman Jr. Scott invited to star in his melodrama "The Long Road", the plot of which is based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks.
Scott Eastwood played the role of a professional rodeo rider in the film. His hero Luke Collins repeatedly received serious injuries at competitions, but from year to year he still returned to his beloved work. One day, Luke meets a charming girl and falls in love with her. Having found love, he reconsiders his attitude towards life and the habit of risking his own life.
The filming of the film "Long Road" was partially related to the performance of complex stunts. Scott refused doubler and rode the angry bull alone.
In 2016, Eastwood Jr. received another major role - this time he reincarnated as an NSA agent in Oliver Stone's film "Snowden".
Films in which the actor played minor roles
Scott Eastwood chooses interesting films for participation, only the directors do not see him as the main character. Sometimes a young man is not even in the background, and is removed in short episodes.
In 2012, the actor appeared in the teen drama "Carmel" in the inconspicuous role of Ryan.
In the same year, Robert Lorenz took Eastwood Junior for the role of Billy Clarke in his drama “Twisted Ball”. The lead roles in the project were distributed between Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams and Justin Timberlake.
In "The Conquerors of the Waves," Scott's role was so small that the guy's name was not even indicated in the main credits. Eastwood was a bit more lucky with the Texas Chainsaw 3D Massacre project.
Whatever it was, in 2016, Scott was only 30 years old, so that the best roles he has yet to come.
What new pictures is Scott Eastwood planning to appear in?
The films "Fast and Furious-8" and "Pacific Frontier-2" are scheduled for 2017-2018. In the first draft, Scott was given the role of a law enforcement agent. Eastwood Jr. is still not listed in the front row of the cast, but this time he has nothing to complain about: supporting roles in the eighth part of the franchise were also given to stars Charlize Theron, Helen Mirren and Kurt Russell.
Painting "The Pacific Line 2" by Stephen S.DeNayta should be a gust in the career of an actor: Scott was assigned a major role in the project along with John Boyega. The producer of the tape was Guillermo del Toro ("The Labyrinth of the Faun"). Considering that the 2013 Pacific Rifle thriller collected 411 million dollars at the box office, Eastwood's sequel has good chances to get a decent fee.
