The film “Rush” portrays the mid-70’s rivalry between Formula 1 racecar drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda during racing's heyday. Daniel Bruhl plays the Austrian Lauda, a much more disciplined, technical competitor than his British playboy rival Hunt, played by Chris Hemsworth.

Bruhl’s most recent and perhaps most well-known role came in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds,” in which he plays the German war hero Fredrick Zoller. He also had a smaller role in “The Bourne Ultimatum” and starred in the 2003 film “Goodbye Lenin!”

This time around, Bruhl worked under award-winning director Ron Howard to tell the story of one of the greatest rivalries in the history of Formula 1 racing.

Daniel Bruhl, actor starring in “Rush,” opening in select theaters September 20, opens everywhere September 27
