Scott Eastwood (born Scott Clinton Reeves; March 21, 1986)[2] is an American actor and model. He has appeared in the films Flags of Our Fathers (2006), Gran Torino (2008), Invictus (2009), The Forger (2012), Trouble with the Curve (2012), and Fury (2014). He co-starred in the 2013 horror film Texas Chainsaw 3D, and starred in the romantic film The Longest Ride (2015) with Britt Robertson. He is the youngest son of award-winning actor-director Clint Eastwood.

Early life[edit]

Eastwood was born in Monterey, California[2][3] and raised in Hawaii.[4]

He is the son of actor-director Clint Eastwood and flight attendant Jacelyn Reeves.[5] He has a younger sister, Kathryn Reeves (b. February 2, 1988). He has five paternal half-siblings, including Kimber Tunis, Kyle Eastwood, Alison Eastwood, Francesca Fisher-Eastwood, and Morgan Eastwood. He graduated from high school in 2003.[3]

He attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles where he graduated in 2008 with a degree in communications.[6] He currently lives in San Diego.[1]

Career[edit]

Eastwood began his career by using his mother's last name to avoid nepotism -- although there is another actor named Scott Reeves -- but later reportedly recognized the power of the Eastwood surname. "I've auditioned for pretty much every one of my father's movies", he said in 2015; if rejected (such as for American Sniper), Eastwood does not hear anything further. "You don't get a phone call. It's nothing personal."[7] He briefly appeared in his father's 2008 film Gran Torino, and played Joel Stransky in Invictus.

In April 2010, he played the lead role in Enter Nowhere.[8] He had a supporting role in David Ayer's 2014 film, Fury.

Eastwood played Luke Collins in the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novel of the same name, The Longest Ride, also starring Britt Robertson and released in April 2015.[9]

Eastwood was cast alongside Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley in the upcoming biopic film Snowden, directed by Oliver Stone and set to release on Christmas Day in 2015. He will star in Suicide Squad, an adaptation of the DC Comics book, in August 2016.[citation needed]
