Scott Eastwood, son of legendary Clint Eastwood (and star of Taylor Swift's 'Wildest Dreams), has confirmed he’ll be starring in the upcoming eighth instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise… and we are very, very, very happy about this.
The 30-year-old actor and model took to social media earlier today, sharing his excitement at getting the role. “It’s hard to put into words how excited I am for the next Fast & Furious.
“To me, the series is so much more than just a franchise. It’s a legacy. These great actors who have been in it together for so long have become a family. I absolutely can’t wait to join it.
If you want insight into Scott's character, you'll have to wait till the movie comes out in 2017. “I get to play a new character who operates under Kurt Russell in the movie, which is incredible, because Kurt was a total childhood hero of mine growing up. Very much looking forward to learning a thing or two from such an original and cool guy."
The 30-year-old star then paid tribute to Paul Walker, who he called “an older brother”.
“Paul was a close friend of mine. We surfed together, traveled together, and he was a huge role model and influencing figure in my life when I was younger. He still is. He was an older brother to me. For me to be able to add to the F&F story, Paul’s story, and the FAST family is like a dream come true. Paul - I am going to make you proud."
We're not even going to deny how excited we are to see Scott in action. Um, we mean, to see Fast and Furious 8 in action.
