Today’s moment of celebrity humiliation: Actor and respected auteur Clint Eastwood has made the unusual decision to sing—yes, sing—on the soundtrack of his upcoming film Grand Torino. The song has been made available online and is already drawing snickers. Sample lyrics: “So tenderly, your story is. Nothing more than what you see or what you’ve done or will become. Standing strong, do you belong, in your skin…” When it comes to Eastwood’s pitch and register, let us just say that there was a reason Dirty Harry wasn’t a musical. The New Republic’s Christopher Orr notes that this continues a frightening Hollywood trend: Ed Harris sang the title song in his recent western Appaloosa.
