Scott Eastwood may have some Hollywood power behind him, in the form of an acting legend father, but he has yet to get his big break in la la land. "Fifty Shades of Grey" and the hype it brings can definitely make his career. According to Just Jared on Oct 20, "Scott and four of the other guys are still in talks" for the role of Christian Grey.
Eastwood, 27, may have started out slow in the business but his career is looking up. Currently he has five films that are in production, which means the next few years will be busy ones for him. Adding "Fifty Shades of Grey" to the mix would only solidify his new found success. The California born actor tweeted about the possible casting, "What is all this talk about 50 shades of grey?? What do you all think?? Let me know." Response to the news has been mostly positive, from fans of his and the film.
