'In the FOXlight': Clint Eastwood Dishes on 'Jersey Boys'
From Broadway smash hit to the big screen, "Jersey Boys" opens in theaters Friday. In the Foxlight’s Michael Tammero gave us a preview of the movie.
The Clint Eastwood-directed film tells the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Tammero got to sit down with the 84-year-old film legend, whose directing credits include "Million Dollar Baby," "Gran Torino," and "Mystic River."
He told Tammero he wanted to make the hit musical into a movie because he felt like The Four Seasons never really got the recognition they deserved. Eastwood decided to keep a lot of the Broadway cast for the movie instead of moving to bigger stars.
"Some of them had done as many as 12,000 performances. That's experience that you can't put a price on."
Tammero said the movie is "fantastic." Watch the segment above from Fox and Friends.
