    Not a movie buff, but that's pretty cool.

    This was mentioned a number of days ago in the thread that asked the musical question, "Crossover drivers?"

    I think most would agree that it is pretty cool.

    I actually ran into him and his brother at PRI. Very nice guys. Had no idea about his acting career!
    Just wait 'till next year!

    Yeah he always seemed like a very likeable guy, I remember when his car broke just short of a longbeach win, felt terrible for him.

    I have found Michel to be a very likeable and friend man before he ever won a race and after he won. I agree, this is pretty cool.

    This is cool. Good for Michel. OT , I worked on another of Alfonso Cuaron's movies "A Little Princess" , way back in 1994. It was nominated for an Oscar for cinematography but lost to Braveheart.
