Scott Clinton Reeves, or as he is more familiarly known, Scott Eastwood, isn’t an actor who could be accused of nepotism. He started his career in 2006, using his Mother’s surname of Reeves, debuting in the War epic, Flags of Our Fathers, with Ryan Phillippee, Jamie Bell and good friend the late Paul Walker. This film was directed by his Father, legendary, Clint Eastwood, but Scott is quick to point out, “I’ve auditioned for pretty much every one of my father’s movies”, he briefly appeared in his father’s 2008 film Gran Torino, and played Rugby star Joel Stransky in Invictus. It wasn’t until a few years later, after reportedly recognised the power of the Eastwood surname, that he started to use it formally.
The bright lights of tinseltown haven’t always been predestined for Eastwood as he considered becoming a firefighter if acting didn’t work out. Plus worked as a bartender, construction worker and car park valet before his acting career took off.
2016 certainly looks like being the break through year for leading man Eastwood, later in the year he stars in the Oliver Stone directed Biopic, Snowden, opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, about Whistle blower Edward Snowden in this politically charged thriller. In a summer cram packed with Blockbusters, he plays a character shrouded in secrecy, in the long awaited DC Comics anti-Superhero movie Suicide Squad, released next month(see below). Plus 2017, sees him join Vin Diesel, Dwanye The Rock Johnson, Charlize Theron and Jason Statham in, Fast 8, the latest in the juggernaut movie franchise Fast and Furious.
But being a super mega movie star is only a small part of what makes up Scott Eastwood, yes he does come from some what of an acting Dynasty, but there is a lot more to Mr Eastwood. He has recently been the face of Fashion House, Hugo Boss, in their Ad Campaigns. But also as part of his relationship as being the face of Davidoff Cool Water, he’s been able to draw attention to a cause very close to his heart, the environment and working with the Ocean Beach Pier Cleanup in San Diego, in association with Davidoff Cool Water and National Geographic. He said at the time, “The ocean is somewhere where I can just forget about any of the bullshit going on in my life.”
