Just weeks after winning his first Emmy Award for the final season of Mad Men, Jon Hamm has signed on to star in writer-director Edgar Wright's new action-comedy Baby Driver. Variety reports that Jamie Foxx has also joined the cast, which includes Ansel Elgort and Lily James. No details were given for Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx's characters at this time.
The story centers on a young getaway driver, dubbed "Baby" due to his boyish looks, who uses his own "personal soundtrack" as he strives to become the best in this illicit business. His life is turned upside down when he's coerced into working for a mafia boss, and, after a heist goes bad, he is forced to go on the run, putting his life on the line. The story is partially inspired by the music video for Mint Royale's Blue Song. Edgar Wright directed the video in 2003, one year before his breakout hit Shaun of the Dead hit theaters.Read More
