NEW YORK - There's a new face among the soldiers in Clint Eastwood's World War II drama "Flags of Our Fathers": Scott Reeves, the director's youngest son. Reeves, 20, makes his big-screen debut as a Marine in one scene of "Flags," due in theaters Oct. 20. He and a bunch of other guys smoke cigarettes, play cards and listen to music while waiting to go into battle.
Obviously, Reeves is a fan of the movie, the latest in Eastwood's Oscar-worthy repertoire.
"Flags," which recounts the story of one of the six Americans who raised the flag on Iwo Jima, is "the culmination of everything, of all his work combined coming to this," Reeves told AP Television at the movie's premiere on Monday.
"It's just one of the best things to work on - ever," he said.
Eastwood, who is married to his second wife, Dina, fathered both Reeves and an 18-year-old daughter, Kathryn, with ex-girlfriend Jacelyn Reeves, a former flight attendant.
Reeves is getting serious about acting. He has roles in the upcoming movies "Pride" and "An American Crime," both slated for release next year.
