As a mature Leon, weathered by the Raccoon City incident, it’s not a far stretch to see Scott Eastwood embody that roll on a physical level. He radiates that American action hero persona. It’s hard to imagine Eastwood as a rookie cop up to his neck in zombies, but a season US operative on a mission to rescue the President’s daughter? Now we’re cookin’ with gas.
Perhaps one thing we’re missing in a Scott Eastwood-style Leon S. Kennedy is that playful humor, but a sandy-blonde, curtain-bang cut and color can bring out the fun in anyone.
