      I really think that Clint Eastwood should redo the old time movie called "My name is Nobody" Clint Eastwood would play Jack Beauregard and Hugh Jackman plays Nobody. This would be an awesome western for them both to be a part of. There would be some very minor changes needed, but for over 10 years I thought those 2 would be awesome in this movie. Letting Clint Eastwood be part of one last western that would be remembered for a very long time, the same for Jackman.

      Clint's already ruined his acting swan song "Gran Torino" by appearing in "Trouble with the Curve". Don't let him ruin his western swan song "Unforgiven" by having what would probably amount to just a cameo in a Hugh Jackman western!!

      I agree completely bakedjohn! So gutted to see Clint in front of the camera again after 'Gran Torino'.
