If we were writing a script for the movie adaptation of Need For Speed we'd definitely call the main character Ned F Speedman. One of the many reasons we write nonsense about films as opposed to writing films ourselves probably.
Co-star of the best TV show the majority of poeple in the UK have never seen [it's on Netflix, go and watch it!] Aaron Paul aka Breaking Bad's Jesse Pinkman has been cast to play the lead role in the forthcoming Need For Speed movie adaptation.
The Dreamworks produced picture will be directed by veteran stuntman and Act of Valor's Scott Waugh [*Googles Act of Valor* Oh yeah, that] and promises to be "a fast-paced, high-octane film rooted in the tradition of the great car culture films of the 70s while being extremely faithful to the spirit of the video game franchsise" if none of that tickled your fancy, then just go and watch Breaking Bad again, like we're going to.
