Between making his comic book impact as Shane Walsh in The Walking Dead and as Frank Castle in Marvel’s The Punisher, Jon Bernthal has given stellar supporting performances in such projects as HBO’s The Pacific, Snitch, The Wolf Of Wall Street, and Fury. Whether he is the main focus or a supporting talent, Bernthal has made his presence felt in the roles he takes, bringing a level of humanity even to his fictional, larger-than-life characters. To add to his Rolodex of characters, Bernthal has joined another project with a popular lineup.
Bernthal has been added to the cast of James Mangold’s true story biopic Ford Vs Ferrari, which is based on A.J. Baime’s 2010 book Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans. Bernthal will be playing Lee Iacocca, the Ford marketing executive who went on to become the President and CEO of Chrysler, opposite Matt Damon’s Carol Shelby, the engineer hired by Henry Ford II to build the world’s fastest car, and Christian Bale’s race car driver Ken Miles, who helps develop and race the Ford GT-40. Bernthal stepped in after Jon Hamm decided not to go on with the project.
Director James Mangold has directed numerous films, including Cop Land, Girl Interrupted, the Academy Award-winning Walk The Line, 3:10 To Yuma, The Wolverine, and Logan. No release date has been set for Ford Vs Ferrari.
