23rd starting at 7:00 p.M. Eastern. Now to clint eastwood, he made headlines speaking at the republican national convention. Now, he's got a movie. He sat down with abc's nick watt to talk all about it. It's been a while. Reporter: "Trouble with the curve" is a touching portrait of a father/daughter relationship which masquerades as a baseball movie. You don't even like baseball. I love baseball. Reporter: Failing eyes and a sharp temper. Tell me you're not gus yourself. No, I'm not. But I can imagine how gus would be. I mean, he's kind of crotchety, doesn't seem to be embracing -- yeah, that is me. Spending every waking moment with my dad -- Reporter: Amy adams is simply stunning, an oscar nod surely coming her way. Has he becomes more appreciative of her, she becomes more appreciative of him. Reporter: In real life, eastwood has daughters, the youngest 17. Imagine trying to date "dirty harry" daughter. Are you armed when they show up at the door? Yeah, that would be nice. My wife takes care of that stuff. She's more stringent than i would be. Reporter: Eastwood at the republican national convention conversely addressed an empty chair as mr. Obama. I've got mr. Obama here. What do you mean shut up? The polls suggest that it was your speech and not mitt romney. You didn't know what you were going to say? No. When did you decide on what you re going to do, how you were going to do it? I saw everybody up there, they were all looking at teleprompters. I said I'm not going to do that. First place, I'm not very good at that. I'd have to have my glasses there and read it anyway. I was sitting there, the guy said, do you want to sit down. I said, no. But that out by the podium. It was really like that? Yeah, it was kind of like that. I thought I'd do this. Anyway, everybody seemed to have a good time with it and that's all that matters. What do you want me to tell romney? I can't tell him that, can't do that to himself. Do you think you went too far at all? No. President obama said he's still a big fan of yours. That's his bad judgment. No, actually, he's very charming to me. Some people loved it, some people hated it. Some people lampooned . That's good. I'm just expressing my feeling. Reporter: And like his character, he just doesn't care what people think. There's something about the aging process that makes you give care less. Is that true for you? Maybe, I don't know.
