In theaters March 14, 2014, Need for Speed is based on the hugely successful video game of the same name, casting Aaron as Tobey Marshall, a blue-collar mechanic and muscle-car street racer who finds himself behind bars for a crime he didn’t commit. Two years later, Tobey is released and set on revenge, looking to enact his plan during the high-stakes De Leon, aka the Super Bowl of underground racing, complete with insane, super-charged cars and an intense gauntlet of cops in pursuit, not to mention a target on his back with a bounty on taking his car out of the race by any means necessary.
