If you’re looking to cast an actor as a humble, honorable American hero in your movie, Tom Hanks is your man. He’s the kind of good guy the whole family can get behind, and who will make your dad tear up at the movies. And now he’s playing that role again, this time in pilot’s gear.
Clint Eastwood to Direct Movie About Heroic Pilot Chelsey ‘Sully’ Sullenberger
On January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549 was struck by a flock of geese during takeoff from LaGuardia Airport.

But even as a soldier, Kyle never lost that cowboy swagger—or that sense that someone has to venture out into the frontier and protect the American way of life. That’s what Kyle learned from his father—who raised him to be a “sheepdog,” a watchful protector in a world of sheep and wolves—and from watching violent Westerns like the ones that made Eastwood a major Hollywood star.
‘Jersey Boys’ Trailer: Clint Eastwood Directs The Story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons

A few weeks ago we heard the news that NBC and Dick Wolf's slow-spreading 'Chicago Fire' had its eye on a potential spin-off, with recent buzz suggesting the show would likely go to series within the near future. Now, the proposed spinoff has begun adding to its cast, recruiting former 'LOST' star Tania Raymonde and Scott Eastwood (yep, that Eastwood) for the as-yet-untitled series, but will it pr
