Guessing,given the casting ,they are going to sugarcoat this one which kinda sucks,as to me the real story is far more interesting...My vote would be for M. mc Connaughy (or however you spell his name) ;D

Not a bad idea, he would play him ok I think. Any other ideas from everyone? Who should play old Carroll?

Interesting choice going with Matt Damon. I REALLY hope this movie is acurate and doesn’t suck!
Nothing beats a classic!

"Who should play old Carroll?":  Tom Selleck has the rugged looks and stature.  James Garner would be perfect but he and Carroll are up top-side swapping lies over a cold one.

They should have been more selective to find an actor to portray OUR favorite chicken rancher. Damon is an ODD choice in both looks and acting ability. Mcchonahey would be much closer,certainly there are many tall skinny actors that can actually handle a car at speed isn't there? :-[

Whatever happened with the movie that was supposed to have Tom Cruise playing Carroll?  Or is this it with a different cast?  I think Damon is a better choice than Cruise.

Matthew McConaughey . Raised in Texas. Tall and thin. Let's write to the casting director.

The script that was presented at the SAAC convention a few years ago probably didn't met with Ford's approval because it made Ford management look bad for imposing the side by side photo finish, even though it screw Ken Miles out of winning all big three races in '65. We know this weighed heavily on Shelby's mind because he talked about it in his later years. It's hardly a secret.

I wish the producers would see that story is a much more compelling one than a rah rah documentary about the USA beating Ferrari.

  I like Tom S for a mature CS
