Thor stud Chris Hemsworth is suited up to play British racing legend James Hunt in new movie Rush. He was spotted on the set of the film this past Tuesday (March 6, 2012) in London.
Rush is the story of bad boy James Hunt and his racing rival Niki Lauda and the story of Lauda’s life changing crash in 1976. Hunt was notorious for his unconventional behavior on and off the race track and was the epitome of unruly, playboy drivers and was celebrated for his English eccentricity.
Hunt, who died from a heart attack at the age of 45 in 1993, was one of the leading Formula One drivers of the 1970s, taking the world F1 title from Lauda in 1976.
