“Austin Said His Answer With No Hesitation” – Kyle Larson, Denny Hamlin & Co’s Hollywood Film Star Selection Sends Fans Wild

NASCAR drivers were recently asked which actor would they choose to portray themselves as a character in a movie and the answers were pretty spot on for some.

There have been a few instances where drivers such as Richard Petty, and Dale Earnhardt Jr among others have appeared in mainstream films. Now, many wish they could be a part of the big screen, and what would be better is to get an actor of their choosing to play them in a hypothetical scenario.

Ryan Blaney stated, “I don’t know. I’d say, let’s get Will Ferrell to come back as Ricky Bobby.” Kyle Larson wanted Jackie Chan to play him.

Kurt Busch said he’d prefer Matt Damon, justifying his answer by stating, “He’s one of my favorites, and, like, dude just knows how to go around internationally.”

Michael McDowell picked up Leonardo DiCaprio while stating that he kinda looks like him. Ricky Stenhouse Jr picked Matthew McConaughey stating, “I feel like he could play me.”

Denny Hamlin wanted Hugh Jackman to play him since he liked Jackman’s intensity and found him to be pretty knowledgeable.

However, the funniest reaction was from Austin Cindric, who was the most firm with his answer, “Morgan Freeman!”
