Matt Damon as CS? Musta been to get the ladies into the theater. Maybe Dax Shepard for that role.

Not as much of a stretch as Christian Bale as Ken Miles though. Miles was a victory lane mess. Big hook nose, badly crooked teeth, and a lantern jaw with a pointy chin.
(Looking forward to the movie, should be a fun watch.) :smile2:

Strap in. It’s gonna be a fun ride.

The stuff on Shelby alone is incredible. Most people that know of him think of AC cobras and Mustangs, but in the same 18 month span, he did:

Cobra street and racing program
Shelby Mustang street and B Production Racing program
GT 40/Le Mans
Trans Am coupe (A Sedan) racing program
Cobra Daytona Racing program

I don’t know when the man slept. Frickin’ amazing.

Not to mention Henry Ford II, Enzo Ferrari, Ken Miles, Dan Gurney, Bruce McLaren, Phil Hill, Mario Andretti and a bunch more proper heroes and villains.

The sad fact is, women racers tend to be attractive. If they weren't nobody would be interested in giving them a chance. Men racers can fall anywhere in that spectrum. If a racer was not particularly attractive, we can't expect Hollywood to cast an unattractive actor to play him. Who's going to risk hundreds of millions of dollars to make that movie?

My Dad clearly remembers watching the GT40's going around Mosport in the mid 60's, with their brake discs glowing cherry red as the sun set. And he figured that if Shelby was getting 400hp out of their 289's, then 225 hp should allow the engine to live almost forever. So that was a good part of the reason he bought my Mustang GT with the A code 289.
I showed him the trailer earlier today, and the intent smile on his face as he saw HF 11 whimpering after Shelby raced him around in the GT40 was something I'll never forget. "Excellent" was all he quietly said. It's a rare movie that makes me still want to go see it at the theatre, but he and I have already made it a date for November.

I saw the preview in the theater during Avengers. Was totally blown away. Stoked to see this.
