Which NASCAR drivers have cameos in new ‘Logan Lucky’ movie? – For The Win
The newest NASCAR movie, Logan Lucky, is set to hit theaters in a couple weeks, but the handful of drivers with cameos in it attended a special screening of it this week in Charlotte, North Carolina.
As we mentioned when the movie trailer first debuted, the plot focuses on two brothers – Channing Tatum and Adam Driver with Steven Soderbergh directing – and their quest to rob Charlotte Motor Speedway during the Coca-Cola 600. The drivers exploring their acting talents are Kyle Busch, Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, Kyle Larson, Ryan Blaney and the recently retired Carl Edwards.
But the question NASCAR fans want answered is: Who plays what in the movie? Thanks to NASCAR.com, we have an idea of what costumes and scenes to look for to identify them before the movie’s August 18 release date.
Busch and Edwards are highway patrol officers – you can see a photo of them on set here – while Larson is briefly seen as a chauffeur.
Keselowski and Logano play security guards, and Keselowski said the role was fairly easy for him because he’s “a natural bad cop.”
And then there’s Blaney, who played a delivery boy and looked like he could have been in costume at the screening.
“If there’s ever an easier role for anyone to fill, it’s a pizza boy for Ryan Blaney,” Keselowski said. “He’s got the long hair and the hat and the stroll. He’s got the pizza-boy stroll. I just can’t wait to see his part.”
The 23-year-old – who will join Keselowski and Logano with Team Penske next season – said he had a great time filming his part.
“Logano, Brad and myself all did our parts on the same day. They did theirs before mine. I got to watch them do theirs, watch them do all their lines. And then, when I had to go and do mine, it’s a lot easier to watch them do it than to actually do it.
“But it was pretty fun. I had a blast doing it. I’m anxious to see how it turns out, even though I had a really small part. I think it could be a hilarious movie.”
Even if you’re not a fan of NASCAR, a very good reason to see this movie is for Daniel Craig’s southern accent, a far cry from his James Bond days.
