Today’s date is April 11th, which can only mean one thing: it’s Jeremy Clarkson’s birthday! Hence, we decided to deem it the perfect moment to play a little game of “Did you know…?”. The following article lists five things you may not know about the famous host of The Grand Tour. Have fun!
Did you know… Clarkson voiced a character on Pixar’s Cars?
Even if you’re not a fan of animated movies made by Pixar or DreamWorks, you probably know the flick “Cars” from 2006. Its main character, Lightening McQueen, is on his way to an important NASCAR-race in California when he gets separated from his crew and stranded in Radiator Springs, a small town off Route 66. However, you may not have noticed that Jeremy Clarkson himself did in fact voice the minor character Harv, Lightening McQueen’s agent.
Actually, you may not even noticed Clarkson’s voice because in the US-version of the movie, Harv is spoken by Jeremy Piven. Only the european version had Clarkson as an actor, and even some lines he said got changed a little.
