Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell Talk Hit and Run
08.22.12 by Ryan
While many remember Dax Shepard from his days on MTV's Punk'd, the actor is now known for his work in the NBC family dramedy Parenthood. Shepard's latest project, the action-comedy Hit and Run, combines his three loves: friends, cars and his fiancée, Kristen Bell.
"We just dished it into one big carafe," Shepard told Hollywood Dailies. "All of Dax's interests," added Bell.
Shepard wrote, starred and co-directed Hit and Run, which follows Shepard as former bank robbery getaway driver Charlie Bronson who busts out of the Witness Protection Service to drive his girlfriend (Bell) to Los Angeles. Along the way, they must contend with a U.S. Marshal (Tom Arnold), the feds and his former bank-robbing best friend (Bradley Cooper). "Even Cooper and I, who are, in real life, best friends, are playing ex-best friends and even when they're fighting you can tell there's some weird love there and guilt," said Shepard of working with his friends.
Co-directed by David Palmer (Brother's Justice), Hit and Run co-stars Joy Bryant (Parenthood), Kristin Chenoweth (Four Christmases), David Koechner (Anchorman), Ryan Hansen (Starz's Party Down), and Beau Bridges (The Descendents).
