Clint's son Scott Eastwood wants to follow dad into 'leading man' roles
When your dad's Clint Eastwood, one would have thought there's a couple of obvious career paths ahead of you. Or perhaps just one.
The screen legend's 27-year-old son Scott is now firmly ploughing ahead with following his father into a career in the movies.
He's already hitting the ground running, currently in London shooting with Brad Pitt on the set of World War II drama 'Fury'.
Meanwhile, pictures published earlier this month of the young chap cavorting on a boat for US magazine Town & Country haven't done him any harm either.
The pics rapidly went viral – thanks in no small part to his ripped washboard stomach – with some more hysterical corners of the internet quickly branding him 'the world's best looking man'.

Speaking to the New York Post, he said: “I like being under the radar. I didn’t get into this business to become famous. I got into this business because I like acting and I want to make movies. I would be happy living the rest of my life never famous.”
Well, thanks to the pictures, he's not under the radar any more.
“I really don’t even know how to answer that, to be honest,” he said. “I’m single . . . if girls like me, hey, that’s great. I think that’s awesome.”
Eastwood and his mother, Jacelyn Allen Reeves, had an affair when Eastwood was involved with actress Sondra Locke, and they had two children together, Scott and his sister Kathryn, two of Eastwood's seven children.

Growing up following his father around film sets, he scored small cameo roles in his father's own films, including 'Flags of our Fathers' and 'Gran Torino', but only after passing the auditions.
