The last time Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood stepped in front of the camera was in the highly-acclaimed 2008 drama Gran Torino — which Eastwood also directed — and it seemed for a long time that the role might be his very last as an actor. Eastwood famously commented that Gran Torino "will probably do it" for him, at least "as far as acting is concerned," saying that he didn't "want to be like a fighter who stays in the ring too long."
Eastwood qualified these statements when we caught up with him at an event in L.A. a couple of years ago, saying that he would "only act again if something good came along," and, thankfully, something good did come along in the form of the baseball drama Trouble with the Curve. In the movie, directed by Eastwood's long-time producer partner, Robert Lorenz, Eastwood once again steps in front of the camera to play Gus, an aging Atlanta Braves scout whose poor eyesight prompts him to enlist his daughter, Mickey (Amy Adams), to be his eyes for him. more about Trouble With the Curve >> Posted 08.10.12 by BrentJS
