Famous Bloodlines


The Longest Ride has won hearts everywhere with its lovely and talented cast including young actors Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson, Oona Chaplin, and Jack Huston and the accomplished Alan Alda. In celebration of the Blu-ray/DVD release, we present to you this lineup’s family lineage extending through years and years of hit movies and colossal careers.

Oona Chaplin
Oona burst onto the scene as the doomed Talisa Stark on Game of Thrones and can now be seen as the charming Ruth on The Longest Ride. Her famous lineage descends from the incomparable Charles Chaplin who is considered as one of the most pivotal stars from the early Hollywood era. Her mother is the talented Geraldine Chaplin and her father is the Spanish cinematographer, director, and writer Patricio Castilla. Her legendary family heritage does not end there, however, she is Eugene O’Neill’s (considered one of America’s greatest playwrights) granddaughter and actor James O’Neill’s (known for early films such as The Count of Monte Cristo and The Grain of Dust) great-granddaughter.

Alan Alda
Alan Alda played the sweet older Ira in The Longest Ride, but he has had a long and successful career that has spun seven decades. His father is Robert Alda who, like his son, had a lasting acting career with films such as Rhapsody in Blue, Imitation of Life, and Cloak and Dagger.

Scott Eastwood
Known for having inherited his father’s iconic good looks, Scott Eastwood broke hearts everywhere as the sexy cowboy in The Longest Ride. If you haven’t guessed yet, his dad is the legendary Clint Eastwood. He became a movie star through classic films such as The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, Dirty Harry, and Escape from Alcatraz among many others.

Jack Huston
Jack Huston has seen his career kick off in the recent years with roles in Boardwalk of Empire, American Hustle, Kill Your Darlings, and The Longest Ride. His fast-growing resume is most surely a characteristic of the Huston family, for his family lineage is made up of many Hollywood elite. His great-grandfather is the Broadway star Walter Huston who, coincidentally, starred in Desire Under the Elms, which was written by Oona Chaplin’s grandfather Eugene O’Neill.  Jack is also John Huston’s grandson; John was considered a Hollywood titan and acted as director, screenwriter, and character actor for films like The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Key Largo, The African Queen, The Asphalt Jungle, Moulin Rouge, and Moby Dick. Jack is the nephew of Danny Huston (known for American Horror Story, Big Eyes, Wolverine, Children of Men, and The Aviator) and Anjelica Huston, who has starred in The Addams Family, Addams Family Values, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Ever After: A Cinderella Story.   


The Longest Ride Blu-ray™ comes packed with 45 minutes of extra features that will take you further into the film’s two central love stories. Join Eastwood on the ranch as he learns from the world’s best bull riders to control the beasts and learn more about the production with audio commentary from director George Tillman, Jr. and star Oona Chaplin.
