It’s almost 2012, but we have a late entry for “most wonderfully weird story of the year.” TMZ reports Clint Eastwood’s family is shooting a reality show intended to air on the E! network. Filming is already underway, and the show “will focus on the relationship between Clint’s wife Dina Eastwood, their daughter Morgan and Clint’s 18-year-old daughter Francesca.” TMZ’s sources say it should start airing in a couple of months.
Clint won’t be the protagonist of the show, but he will have a role. Pour yourself a nice glass of wine, take a seat, and read the following sentence from Movieline; it’s one the greatest assemblages of words ever written:
“Clint has allegedly agreed to appear occasionally but will remain a peripheral character to his female Eastwood counterparts, much like Bruce Jenner on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”
Finally, we’ll have Clint Eastwood in the role he was born to play: Bruce Jenner, only squintier.
Fittingly, Bunim/Murray, the same company responsible for Keeping Up with the Kardashians, is producing the Eastwoods’ show.
I know what you’re thinking. "Did he shoot a six-episode arc about getting a new puppy, or was it only a five-episode arc?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. You’ve got to ask yourself one question: "Do I feel lucky?" Well, do ya, punk?
