“Captain American: Civil War” star Sebastian Stan has nabbed a new role! Instead of Captain America's (Chris Evans) friend Bucky Barnes and brainwashed assassin Winter Soldier, this time Stan will be playing a NASCAR driver in “Logan Lucky.”
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news Wednesday, Aug. 31 that Stan has signed on for Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming NASCAR heist movie. The 34-year-old Romanian-American actor is set to take on the role of a three-time racing champion making a comeback in the NASCAR scene after taking a long hiatus from the sport.
Stan is just the latest actor to join “Logan Lucky’s” star-studded roster, which includes Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Katherine Heigl, Hilary Swank, Adam Driver, Riley Keough, Seth MacFarlane and Katherine Waterston.
“Logan Lucky,” which serves as Soderbergh’s big-screen comeback after his three-year break, focuses on a heist at the Charlotte Motor Speedway.
