His new movie, Trouble with the Curve, is not a Clint Movie in that he didn’t direct it. It is a Clint Movie, though, in that it was made with Clint’s crew and directed by Rob Lorenz, with whom he has worked for eighteen years. When Gran Torino came out in 2008, he intimated that his role as cantankerous martyr Walt Kowalski might be his last turn in front of the camera. But he knew Lorenz was desperate to direct, and he knew that Lorenz’s best chance to fulfill his dream was with a movie starring Clint Eastwood. So he acts in Trouble with the Curve. And yet it’s still a Clint Movie, because in a scene shot at a cemetery, he made his crew cry. (via Clint Eastwood Interview - Tom Junod Clint Eastwood Profile - Esquire)
