Another Nicholas Sparks movie, another hunky guy for us to swoon over! Scott Eastwood has been cast as the lead male in the upcoming film adaptation of The Longest Ride.
Clint Eastwood’s son will play Luke, a cowboy who starts dating a college student named Sophia, who has a much different background from him. Their romance story becomes entwined with that of Ira, an old, widowed man who is fighting to survive after veering off the road in a snowstorm.
Scott confirmed the casting news in an Instagram post Wednesday, in which he holds up the popular novel. “Great book,” he captioned the pic. “Thanks Fox for this amazing opportunity!!#thelongestride #nicholassparks.”
The rest of the cast has yet to be revealed.
