Congrats to Clint Eastwood for being No. 1 at the box office last week with Gran Torino at such a damn competitive movie time. Old guy still has it.
Must say we didn't quite understand what the appeal was from previews, but after seeing it, it's so vintage Eastwood that it's too fab. One thing that many folks didn't catch was that his son, Scott Eastwood, makes an appearance.
It's basically the only young white guy in the flick, so you can't really miss it. The scene is effin' hilarious if you know the relation, 'cause daddy Eastwood calls Scott p--sy this, p--sy that and much more that we can't type here.
Click to find Clint's reaction to it all when we ran into him over awards weekend:
How was it doing a scene where you had to call your son, well, some not so nice names? "Oh, you know, it was great!" he said cracking up.
He sure took it like a champ. "Oh yeah," blabbed Angie's BFF looking like such the proud father-type.
Maybe Scott can do some younger Dirty Harry franchise thing? Hollywood can't come up with any original ideas anymore, so we wouldn't be surprised if that's next.
