Taylor Swift has one more A-list actor to add to her squad.

In a recent interview this week, Scott Eastwood revealed that his agents originally advised him not to accept the role of Taylor Swift’s love interest in her "Wildest Dreams" music video

"None of my agents wanted me to do it, actually," Eastwood, 30, told People. "They said, 'Oh, we don't want you to do that! Why would you go be Taylor Swift's boy toy?' And I said, 'Why the hell not?'"

Obviously, he ultimately did accept the part, and the video was nothing short of a dream, just like Swift intended.

The Suicide Squad actor took to Instagram shortly after shooting the video, back in 2014, to show the world just how much fun he had.

"What an amazing time working with @taylorswift," he captioned the photo. "Not only is she a rock star. But someone I am proud to call a friend. She is a great person and those are hard to find in your life. When you do…hold tight."

Eastwood is playing the protégé to Michael Douglas' Mr. Nobody character in the next installment of the Fast and Furious franchise. Find out more in the video below.
