Hayden Gets Audition With Spielberg

Apparently Hayden never made it to the Fontana Auto Club Speedway yesterday as part of a planned media and fan event with NASCAR driver Casey Mears. According to the OC Register, Hayden is "not ready to give up his day job" and when Steven Spielberg invites you to an audition just before leaving for the track what do you say yes.

I know fans were probably disappointed but things happen and it's understandable that work must comes first. We can't wait for more news and wish Hayden all the best.

Perhaps a new helmet for Darth Vader

Actor Hayden Christensen is interested in driving a stock car, but apparently he's not ready to quit his day job just yet to pursue a NASCAR dream.

Christensen, who gained fame playing Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, in the Star Wars saga, was supposed to be at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana driving go-karts at the track with Hendrick Motorsports Sprint Cup driver Casey Mears. According Auto Club Speedway president Gillian Zucker, Christensen in very interested in launching a racing career.

Christenen's kart was ready for him, sitting outside the track, which is built in the speedway's parking lot. But the driver was MIA.

Zucker said Steven Spielberg invited Christensen to an audition on Wednesday, not too long before he was supposed to head out to the track.
