Former Spring Grove resident lands role in new Clint Eastwood film
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — If you’re headed out to see Clint Eastwood’s new movie this weekend, you might spot a Spring Grove native.
Molly Busta, also known as “Mollie B,” is in the internationally known polka band Squeezebox. She co-composed and recorded a song with the band for Eastwood’s movie, “The Mule.”
The movie is about an elderly man who finds himself involved in a drug ring.
It turns out Eastwood is a big fan of hers and watches her national TV program, “Mollie B Polka Party.” Busta said Eastwood asked that she get involved in the film because of this connection.
She said you can spot her during a scene where the main character is reopening a Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
“I’m playing piano, I’m singing, I get off stage, I dance with Clint Eastwood, which, by the way, was not in the original script. But he had me come down and dance with him. I’m next to him doing the lines shortly after it,” Busta explains. “But that scene, like I said, [is] maybe a minute [and] 40 [seconds long]. But you can’t miss me, and I hope you enjoy it! It’s a very fun, upbeat scene in the movie.”
“The Mule” is rated ‘R’ and is out in theaters now.
