Los Angeles: Director-actor Clint Eastwood`s son Scott has been cast as the lead in the big screen adaptation of Nicholas Sparks` book The Longest Ride.
Scott, 28, has followed in the footsteps of famous actors like Ryan Gosling, Channing Tatum, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Duhamel and Zac Efron, who too have played the leads in movies based on Sparks`s bestsellers, reportedly.
He posted a picture of himself on Instagram, holding the book along with the caption "Great book. Thanks Fox for this amazing opportunity!"
The Longest Ride, which echoes Sparks` smash hit `The Notebook`, tells the story of an elderly widower whose life is entwined with the life of a sorority girl and the cowboy she loves.
