Scott Eastwood dishes on Fast & Furious 8, Suicide Squad and The Rock's "secret" nickname.

Scott Eastwood just dropped the superhero BOMBSHELL of all bombshells on us and all we're gonna say is... Affleck, watch your back. 

Hollywood actor and star of the brand Fast & Furious movie, Scott Eastwood stopped by the PopBuzz studio last week and we had a very lovely time. He teased the fate and potential return of his character in Suicide Squad, revealed which iconic superhero he would like to play next and even described what it feels like to be throw against a wall by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. An honour, we're sure you'll agree.


We also put Scott to the test in a game we like to call 'Fact Or Spurious' - it's basically true or false with a fancy name that we definitely didn't make up on the spot - in which he has to sleuth out the facts and the lies about his Fast And Furious co-stars. Helen Mirren used to work as a WHAT when she was younger?! Christ.
