Clint Eastwood may be 83, but he's still got game: The director, who officially split from wife Dina less than two weeks ago, has wasted no time moving on.

In a twist worthy of daytime TV, he's reportedly now dating Erica Tomlinson-Fisher, the ex-wife of one of Dina's high school friends, according to People.

"I am saddened to see photos of Clint with Ms. Tomlinson-Fisher," Dina Eastwood said in a statement via the NY Daily News. "I look forward to new beginnings."

Speaking of TV, the E! reality series Mrs. Eastwood and Company is reportedly to blame for the end of Clint and Dina's marriage.

A source who worked with the legendary director told People, "Clint was furious about the show. It went against everything he stands for: he's incredibly private, and she put his kids on TV. It was not a happy time for them."

The show drew headlines for stunts including daughter Francesca's setting a pricey designer bag on fire. (Francesca is his daughter with Frances Fisher; he has one daughter, Morgan, with Dina.)

Dina told Us Weekly that she and Clint had been living apart for some time.

The Monterey County Herald reports that Dina filed for a legal separation Monday at the Monterey Courthouse. (Initial reports had Clint filing for divorce today, but apparently those were wrong.)

The two wed in 1996 and have been based in Carmel, where Eastwood was once mayor.

People reports that Eastwood is currently in L.A. to direct the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Jersey Boys.

In other "old guy splitting from his younger, hotter wife" news, Michael Douglas insisted that his marriage to Catherine Zeta-Jones is "fine," despite their separation.
