Scott Eastwood channels his dad’s iconic film role for Halloween costume
Scott Eastwood paid tribute to one of his dad’s most iconic movie roles in an eerily authentic Halloween costume — and it’s all for a good cause.
The Suicide Squad star channeled Clint’s famous “Spaghetti Western” getup at Hilarity for Charity’s 5th Annual Variety Show to benefit The Alzheimer’s Association this past weekend.
Dressed in a cowboy hat and cowboy boots, Eastwood draped a brown poncho over his shoulders and chewed on a cigar just like his dad’s character The Man with No Name from classics like A Fist Full of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
Asked if Clint gave the outfit his seal of approval, Scott told E! Online, “I sent him a picture. I haven’t heard back; he doesn’t do a lot of texting.”
The actor also revealed the costume was a last-minute decision. “I hadn’t thought about it before I was told it was a costume party, and I said, ‘Well s—, Halloween came early,” he told the website.
Unfortunately, Eastwood won’t have the opportunity to wear the costume out for trick-or-treating. “I gotta go start filming, so I gotta go to work!” he said of his plans for the end of the month.
The Hilarity for Charity fundraiser was hosted by its founders, Seth Rogen and his wife, Lauren Miller Rogen, and included other famous guests like Snoop Dogg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
The event raised $1.6 million for Alzheimer’s research and has raised over $6.5 million since Rogen and his wife created Hilarity for Charity in 2012, according to a statement from the fundraiser.
