Clint Eastwood is one of my all-time favorite actors since I was a kid. His decision to choose real-life military heroes for his next movie is awesome!
Three California men who stopped a terror attack on a French train in 2015 will play themselves in a film about their heroics directed by Eastwood. This should be a huge treat as all three get to work along side one of Hollywood’s elite actors who is an American-made hero himself.
Eastwood’s patriotism toward this country is unquestioned, and his conservatism is unmatched when it comes to Hollywood actors. He lives and breathes his convictions that call out expanded government and social programs created to hurt the American family.

Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone, Oregon National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos and civilian Anthony Sadler, all childhood friends from California, will star in “The 15:17 to Paris,” a film based on the book they co-wrote about taking down a terrorist, Warner Bros. said in a statement.
The film, which began production this week, follows the lives of the three friends from childhood to the evening when they helped subdue the man who opened fire inside a train traveling from Amsterdam to Paris.
The film will be the latest of several about real-life heroes that Eastwood has taken on, including 2014’s “American Sniper,” and 2016’s “Sully.” But the leads in those films were played by Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper and Oscar-winner Tom Hanks, respectively, not their actual subjects.
It’s common to give cameo roles to the subjects of films that don’t require more than a line or two, but this case is nearly unprecedented in recent Hollywood history. There are no reports of the men having any acting experience, though Skarlatos appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” soon after the Paris incident.
I am happy Eastwood is filming it. Tom Hanks, Spielberg, Ron Howard and their liberal ilk would portray them as the bad guys. I am positive Eastwood couldn’t find any actors in Hollywood who could grasp the concept of heroism like these men.
These servicemen have LIVED it and will be drawing from the real experience and their memory – instead of some script telling them how it went down. Can’t wait to see real heroes on the screen – and getting the money for portraying their experience – instead of some actor. Eastwood is arguably the best living storyteller in filmmaking.
I believe and always have believed that Eastwood loves this country with all his heart and knows what is right and what is wrong. Sometimes portraying a part should come from the men that performed the act, instead of some overpaid lame ass that ran from serving this country. Just my opinion.
