Movieline's intrepid video correspondent Carly Steel was front and center at L.A.'s Geffen Playhouse last night for annual fundraiser Backstage at the Geffen, where, undeterred by his legendary ball-retracting glare, she cornered Clint Eastwood. She proceeded to grill the Hollywood elder statesman on the status of the Dustin Lance Black-penned J. Edgar Hoover bio he's recently been linked to, which he confirmed to Movieline was a go.
