Transcript for Scott Eastwood talks about his new film, 'The Outpost'
Welcome back joined biage actor you know in "Suicide squad" now starring in "The outpost." Scott Eastwood joins us this morning. Scott, thanks for coming back to how is Josie doing this morning? She's a little pissed off. It's early. How has she been handling quarantine? She's good. She's good. You know, just getting rid of the eye boogers, doing what every good dog dad does in the morning. And as you said it is quite early out there. We have to talk about "The outpost." It tells the story of this battle in Afghanistan in kamdesh where 53 U.S. Soldiers battled about 400 enemy insurgents in Afghanistan. You play a true American hero. Yeah, yeah, he really is. And, you know, speaking to him, you never would know. He would really actually tell you, you know, that there are so many heroes that day and he's just, you know, one of the humblest persons you'd ever talk to. We're going to show everybody a little bit from "The outpost" right now. Every time I take a pot shot, they are figuring us out and the big one comes, I'll have us dialed in. How would you do it if you were them? What? How would you do it if you were them? How would I do it? Hard to believe this story happened 11 years ago now and the war in Afghanistan still going on. Now America's longest war by far. What do you think we can learn from the story right now? It's a good question. You know, it's interesting, I think about the military, the armed forces in general, it really strips people down and builds them back up and gives us a common goal. Everyone has their own profession and it really forces people to work together in sort of extraordinary circumstances and I think that's really important right now especially with the state O our country and to remember that we are a country that unites together and, you know, in the face of terrorism and bad things and I think that's an important It must have been so fulfilling to be part of a project like this. Yeah, it's always incredible to be a part of true stories especially ones that, you know, honor our armed forces. When you make a movie like this, it's really -- it's always very powerful and something that sticks with you for a long time. Well, I look forward to seeing it. "The outpost" is in select theaters this weekend. Scott, thanks so much.
