Welcome to 50 Days of Scott Eastwood, a Just PMSing original series, where we dive deep into the man, the myth, the legend, Clint Eastwood’s son, Scott. Photo by Gage Skidmore.
Scott Eastwood announced on his Instagram that he will star (?) in an upcoming rom-com titled I Want You Back. His co-stars are Jenny Slate and some other actors I don’t know.
Has Eastwood ever been in a comedy? I do not know because I am unwilling to look up his IMDB page right now. He has been in a romantic film, however, which is one-half of a rom-com. That romantic film was The Longest Ride, a Nicholas Sparks movie, where he played a bull rider with brain damage. But does Eastwood have what it takes to be in a rom-com, which is one-half comedy? Is he funny? Does he make me “ha-ha?”
“I’m just looking for a special dog that’s willing to play and take naps,” he says in the “funny” video. “No drama. And that won’t stare at me while I’m having sex. With a woman of course. I-I-I just want to take this opportunity to clear this up: I’m here to find a new friend. That’s it.”
Ha-ha. You almost thought he was looking to have sex with a dog, didn’t you? But he’s not. He just wants a friend. Do you get it?
The video goes on to show that a cat enters the picture (ha-ha!), but ultimately, Eastwood gives his bone to Peanut, a white dog, who I think is a lab (a breed of dog I don’t like).
Ha-ha, all very funny.
I’m excited for Eastwood to bring his comedy chops to this rom-com.
