ROYAL OAK -- Clint Eastwood invited local barber Ted Widgren to be in a scene of "Gran Torino," filmed at the longtime businessman's shop on 11 Mile Road Friday and Saturday.

"Clint said, 'I like the color of his shirt. Let's use him as a customer,'" said Widgren's son-in-law, Frank Mills, who walked between the set and the spectators across the street.
