Watch a Ruined Clint Eastwood Smuggle Cocaine in ‘The Mule’ Trailer (Video)

Eastwood plays a destitute man who unknowingly gets hired as a drug runner

Clint Eastwood may have made his name in Hollywood playing grizzled, tough men, but in the trailer for “The Mule,” he is the opposite.

In “The Mule,” Eastwood plays a man with no money, a foreclosed home, and an estranged family. Desperate for cash, he takes a job as a driver delivering unknown goods only to discover by accident that he’s actually smuggling cocaine. Bradley Cooper, whose directorial debut “A Star Is Born” is out this week, stars as the DEA agent tasked with shutting down the drug ring, and who sees Eastwood as the key to bringing it all down.

“I thought it was more important to be somebody out there than the damn failure I was in my own home,” Eastwood can be heard saying in a weary voiceover. “This is the last one. So help me God, this is the last one.”

“The Mule” hits theaters Dec. 14. Watch the trailer above.
