Scott Eastwood reacts to 'Pacific Rim: Uprising' toppling 'Black Panther' at the box office

Scott Eastwood is continuing to make a name for himself in Hollywood.

The 32-year-old son of Clint Eastwood's star has been steadily rising, and it looks to continue that way as he continues to average around three films a year. With the likes of "The Fate of the Furious," "Pacific Rim: Uprising" and "Suicide Squad" under his belt, it's clear that Eastwood has a penchant for big-budget, blockbuster fare.

AOL Entertainment recently caught up with Scott Eastwood via email to discuss "Pacific Rim: Uprising" unseating "Black Panther" at the top of the box office last month, being cast alongside Morgan Freeman and balancing his passion for adventure and filming movies.

Check out our catch-up with Scott Eastwood below:

How does it feel being one of the stars of the movie that was finally able to unseat "Black Panther" at the top of the box office? Did you see "Black Panther"?

Yes, I saw Black Panther. It is a great film. I am so happy for the film and all its success. I think it is really good for the super hero genre. I love the cast of "Uprising" and enjoyed filming it in Australia and China. I was excited our fans all over the world showed up opening weekend to put us in the number one spot. As somebody in the film business, I am grateful to all those who go to the movies.

What did you think of the reception that "Pacific Rim Uprising" got? How much attention do you pay to that in general?

I just focus on making good films for the fans. I like to keep moving forward. I am super happy the fans enjoyed it. I am proud of the film.

You were recently cast in "The Manuscript" alongside Morgan Freeman. What was your initial feeling when you first landed the role?

I am very excited to work with Morgan. I have worked with him before, and it was a great experience. I think Nick Cassavetes is a great director. I like the material and can’t wait to make the movie.

How do you pick the roles you choose?

There are lots of factors, but I usually follow my gut.

You're an avid fisher and pilot -- would you ever do any sort of docu-series around one of your adventures?

YES, why not?

What's the key for you in balancing work and play?

I try to have fun with everything that I do -- it keeps my hectic life balanced. I am also pretty adventurous, and luckily, I get to travel a lot for work. So during my downtime, I like to keep that momentum going. Scratching things off my bucket list and experiencing new sights and scenes is what life’s all about! I recently had the opportunity to mix work and play and have some fun and travel to Tokyo. I partnered with the airline All Nippon Airways to highlight the unique culture, food and sights of Japan to inspire others to travel there. I like to enjoy life and try to do so in every aspect of my life, even while working.
