There’s nothing quite like a good Nicholas Sparks movie, and actor Scott Eastwood knows that all too well. Discussing his role in “The Longest Ride,” he told The List, “It was an incredible film to work on. I was a huge fan of movies like ‘The Notebook,’ so getting to work on a Nicholas Sparks film was really great.” He loved what director Nick Cassavetes did with the classic flick. “He’s an incredible filmmaker,” Eastwood said.
In addition to being a huge fan of “The Notebook” just like the rest of us, Eastwood revealed that he’s a fan of romantic movies in general — that is, “if they’re done right.” Thankfully, his own Nicholas Sparks film checked that box. “I thought I was pretty lucky to get to work with George Tillman Jr. on ‘The Longest Ride,'” he said. “He brought a lot of heart to it, but really in a subtle way, which I like.”
“I Want You Back” will premiere exclusively on Prime Video February 11, 2022.
