Morning Man Classic: James Hunt!

Am visiting friends in San Diego and after a nice day at the beach in Del Mar, we took in a movie: Rush.

Chris Hemsworth plays British race car driver James Hunt in this Ron Howard-directed movie about the 1976 Formula One season.

While there are few men on Earth as handsome as Hemsworth, the real-life Hunt was no slouch in the looks department.

While he was world champ in 1976, Hunt never reached such heights again but he became a successful broadcaster.

Sadly, Hunt died of a heart attack in 1993 at the age of 45.

One Remark

  1. I am surprised at the resemblance of Hemsworth and Hunt. Granted, Chris still has most of his “Thor” bulk and Jeff had the thin and wiry build that was the rage in the 70′s but I’ve been told by friends that have seen “Rush” that Chris’s torso is just icing on the cake compared to the scenes of Formula 1 racing. Apparently it’s quite the adrenaline rush! (No pun intended.)
