Scott Eastwood is following in his father’s footsteps of becoming a leading man on the big screen.
The 28-year-old actor scored the lead in the upcoming Nicholas Sparks’ book-turned-movie, The Longest Ride, out this April. In the highly-anticipated romantic flick, Scott plays Luke Collins, a champion bull rider fighting to save his family’s ranch – an adventurous role that helped him check one activity off his bucket list. But what else is on that list? Scott spilled all while chatting with ETonline.
“Mount Everest…. Kids -- two or three,” Scott answered, before adding he’s also hoping to do another film with his dad. Most recently, Scott appeared alongside his father in 2012’s Trouble with the Curve. He also worked with his legendary pops on Flags of Our Fathers, Invictus, and Gran Torino.
In The Longest Ride, Scott’s character falls in love with a Wake Forest College student (Brit Robertson), and reveals it wasn't the lovey-dovey emotional scenes that took the longest to film, but the action-filled bull riding scenes that come with Luke’s dangerous career choice.
“A lot of the bull riding stuff was complicated,” he says. “There were a lot of things that had to happen -- and all happen at the right time -- because you’re dealing with cameras and live animals.”
2015 is shaping up to be quite the year for Scott. Earlier this month, he was revealed to be the newest face of DAVIDOFF Cool Water, a title that last belonged to the late Paul Walker. In theme with his new fragrance gig, we decided to play a little game of “Cool or Uncool” with the actor – and it turns out Scott himself isn't just cool – he’s also quite sappy, a health nut, can sing and is a fan of Taylor Swift.
