This punk certainly feels lucky.

Scott Eastwood, son of legendary Hollywood actor/director Clint Eastwood, has just signed on to the next installment of the Fast & Furious mega-franchise, this according to Deadline.

The move to add the younger Eastwood to the upcoming movie, called Fast 8, comes just days after Oscar-winner Charlize Theron joined the cast. It”s not yet known what role Eastwood will play. All the usual suspects, including Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez, will be back for the blockbuster series that”s grossed nearly $4 billion.
