Dirty Harry is dead

05.22.2008
Alas, if you were hoping to see San Francisco's notoriously trigger-happy detective ventilate perpetrators with his infamous handgun once more, it wasn't meant to be.

At the press conference for the Cannes premiere of his new film CHANGELING (reviewed RIGHT HERE), Clint Eastwood himself put a high caliber round right through the recent rumor that his next film GRAN TORINO (or a following project) could be the resurrection of inspector Callahan: "Dirty Harry would not be on the police department at my age, so we'll move on from that." (Eastwood is 78.)

After joking that his CHANGELING star Angelina Jolie could take over the role, Eastwood reminisced about the iconic rule-breaking lawman: "Whatever reaction it had, it was great fun at that time. It was a fantasy role. You point a .44 Magnum at someone and say, 'Do you feel lucky'?" Yep, good times -- I still do it regularly.

No kidding, the guy is in shape...however, I imagine when he DOES keel over it'll be a sad day. I'm glad he put an end to the speculation, cuz as cool as Harry was, it's just unrealistic both in movie terms and in reality.

Luckily I didn't think Clint was dead as I knew there was no way another Dirty Harry movie and the headline must mean it had been confirmed. Eastwood is made of lead though, he will out-live the rest of us

HOLY CRAP

Im all for catchy headlines... but you almost threw off our dead pool! I cant have anymore actors pass away that I actually like! Wow-- what a scare... DUDE...

side note-- I was happy to find out that Changeling was not a documentary about Odo on DS9... is it true that the title is being changed?
