When Top Gear announced they were heading to the States with a full throttle version of their popular BBC show I jumped for joy but remained skeptical. Would their winning formula of quick, dry humor translate to an American audience? Fast forward six months to the unveiling of The History Channel's sneak peek of the first season, I'm happy to report things are looking good. The faces are new — and might I add, incredibly adorable in a frat boy kind of way— but the premise is still the same, fast cars, fun missions, and miles of open road and hijinks along the way.
No word on who may be joining them along the way, though I have a strong suspicion they'll sprinkle in a few A-List Hollywood names much like their British counterparts. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz were recently spotted taking a lap around the track for the UK crew, in which Tom set a new course record — it's nice to see he still has the need for speed. The trailer is a little more Dukes of Hazzard, a little less James Bond but I have high hopes for this wild bunch! I'm throwing out my wish list of hot hunky men I would like to see whipping around the track: Bradley Cooper, Patrick Dempsey, Ben McKenzie, Ben Affleck, and Adam Brody of course! Who would you like to see get behind the wheel for some high speed racing action?
