Clint Eastwood Makes His Return to Acting After 6 Years — See Him on Set!
Clint Eastwood is back and looking better than ever.
The 88-year-old actor was spotted on set of his new film The Mule on Monday in Georgia. The legendary actor was seen staying cool with a straw hat and a light long-sleeve shirt and pants. He was also carrying a flower during the scene and was later driving a truck.
Eastwood is pulling triple duty on the shoot, as he’s starring, directing and producing his return to the big screen. The actor stars as Earl Stone, a quiet man who gets caught up in drug trafficking after accepting what seemed like a normal driving job.
The film is based on the true story of Leo Sharp, who became the country’s oldest drug mule when he was caught with a large shipment of cocaine at 87-years-old in 2011. Sharp smuggled cocaine around the U.S. for infamous Mexican drug dealer El Chapo and a branch of his Sinaloa cartel.

His last role before that came in 2008 with Gran Torino about a Korean War vet dealing with growing gang violence in his neighborhood.
