NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney to guest star on NBC's 'Taken'


Mon, Dec 11th 2017 03:00 pm
NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney will guest star in the upcoming season of NBC's "Taken" (premiering Jan. 12, 2018). The episode, titled "Imperium," will air in 2018 and will feature Blaney as a special agent with a very particular set of driving skills.
When a dangerous weapons dealer smuggles his wares into New York City, Bryan Mills (Clive Standen) teams up with the FBI in a race to stop him before he reaches the safety of international waters. 
At just 23-years old, third generation racer and son of veteran NASCAR driver Dave Blaney, Ryan Blaney is a key pillar of NASCAR's youth movement. Full of enthusiasm and passion, he drove his second full Monster Energy NASCAR Cup season this past year through an alliance between Team Penske and the Wood Brothers.
In 2018, Ryan will be behind the wheel of Team Penske's No. 12 Ford for his third season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and will also be running a limited NASCAR XFINITY Series (NXS) schedule for the seventh season.
Blaney has previously acted and appeared in several movies and television shows, including "Logan Lucky," "Cars 3" and "American Ninja Warrior."
From executive producer Luc Besson ("Taken," "The Fifth Element"), "Taken" is a modern-day, edge-of-your-seat thriller that follows a young but deadly Bryan Mills (Standen), former CIA spy Christina Hart (Jennifer Beals) and a team of covert operatives as they embark on rescue missions around the world - a job that employs Mills' very particular, and very dangerous, set of skills.
In 30 years, this character is destined to become the Bryan Mills audiences have come to love from the "Taken" films.
Also starring is Adam Goldberg ("Fargo") and Jessica Camacho ("The Flash").
