Clint Eastwood's son channels his 'Spaghetti Western' role

Business Standard
October 20, 2016

Veteran actor Clint Eastwood's actor son Scott paid tribute to his father's iconic role from the "Spaghetti Western" films, in an eerily authentic Halloween costume.

The "Suicide Squad" star channeled Clint's famous "Spaghetti Western" get-up at Hilarity for Charity's 5th Annual Variety Show to benefit The Alzheimer's Association this past weekend, reported E! Online.

Dressed in a cowboy hat and cowboy boots, Scott 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 said, "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 Halloween came early'," he said.

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 USD 1.6 million for Alzheimer's research and has raised over USD 6.5 million since Rogen and his wife created Hilarity for Charity in 2012, according to a statement from the fundraiser.
