After a well-received stint as a lovable dope slinger on HBO’s canceled “How To Make It in America,” Scott Mescudi has signed on for his second big screen feature. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Cudi is lined up to star alongside “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul in the Dreamworks adaptation of the video game “Need for Speed.”
The cast already includes Imogen Poots (“Jane Eyre”), Dominic Cooper (“Captain America: The First Avenger”), Ramon Rodriguez (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”), Rami Malek (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2”) and Harrison Gilbertson (“Virginia”). The movie, due out in February 2014, will focus on street racer Paul, framed for the auto racing accident that takes his best friend’s life who joins a New York-to-Los Angeles race to get revenge after his release from prison.
Cudi, who has already wrapped roles in the indie rom-com “Two Night Stand”and the Adrian Grenier movie “Goodbye World,” will play a member of Paul’s crew.
