Clint Eastwood Versus a Furniture Company, Round One

+

This fall, the tireless, 81-year-old Clint Eastwood will direct and star in Trouble with the Curve, a baseball-themed movie that features Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake, and a baseball-as-life metaphor. The movie, about a father reconnecting with his daughter, will no doubt lay on the sap, but that doesn’t mean that Eastwood is shedding his hard-ass image. A furniture company called Evofurniture has used the actor’s persona for some lame and shameless promoting (Sample: “When you’re invited into a person’s home, you get to see the good, the bad and the ugly. When visitors come to your home, the Clint 47” Entertainment Center makes your family room alone look like you live in a perfect world of a million dollar baby”), and Eastwood will not be toyed with in such manners. He’s lawyering up, according to The Hollywood Reporter, because the furniture company is using his image for monetary gain without seeking his permission. We’re not sure what this means for our burgeoning Clint Eastwood impersonation business, but it’s not looking good.
