Clint Eastwood had a "make my day" attitude about Hollywood agents, including his own representative, Leonard Hirshan. "If he didn't return a call, he would have been history!" the screen tough guy said this week. But then Eastwood laughed and said, sadly, "I'm just joking. Lenny always returned a call. " Hirshan was Eastwood's agent for more than 50 years, perhaps a record in Hollywood for a major star. It started when Hirshan was already an established agent with the all-powerful William Morris Agency, where over the years he represented stars such as Jack Lemmon, Angela Lansbury, Walter Matthau and Sophia Loren, and also negotiated film deals for the likes of Elvis Presley.

Forward Clint Dempsey strained his right calf during training Wednesday and will sit out U.S. soccer's final two matches of the year. The U.S. is scheduled to meet Scotland on Friday in a friendly in Glasgow before taking on Austria four days later in Vienna. Midfielder Fabian Johnson was also forced to withdraw from the team with a right ankle injury. U.S. Coach Juergen Klinsmann said no replacements will be added. Although the U.S. has won a record 16 games this year, the team has limped to the finish line.

VS SEATTLE When: 7:30. Where: StubHub Center. On the air: TV: NBC Sports Network; Radio: 1330. Records: Galaxy 13-10-5, Sounders 15-8-4. Record vs Sounders: 1-0-0. Update: This is one of the most anticipated games of the season for the Galaxy, especially after star forward Clint Dempsey signed with Seattle last month. The question is whether Dempsey will be able to face off against the Galaxy's all-time leading scorer Landon Donovan - Dempsey's teammate on the U.S. national team - because Donovan is nursing a sore right ankle and was questionable for the game.

A life-size cutout of Clint Eastwood in cowboy garb won't be the only likeness of a western star to become Glendale city property. In a unanimous vote Tuesday, the City Council approved accepting the donation of five western-inspired art pieces, including the one of Eastwood, from a Los Angeles artist who had originally secretly placed some of the cutouts in the hills above Glendale. "This is the kind of organic art that I really respond to," said Councilwoman Laura Friedman.
