Ferrari! Friend and former Y&R castmate Christian LeBlanc (Michael) shared the big news along with a selfie Carrigan snapped on the plane heading to film on location in France. “This is the face Sean Carrigan makes when he is in first class jetting off to Paris to play race car driver Walt Hansgen in a film about LeMans with Christian Bale and Matt Damon!”

Ford V. Ferrari is the true story of the battle between Ford and Ferrari to win the legendary Le Mans race in 1966. Matt Damon, Christian Bale, and Jon Bernthal star in the film, which is directed by James Mangold, who has helmed award-winning fare like Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, and Logan.
Carrigan will be playing the role of Walt Hansgen, who was a world champion Formula One racecar driver in the ‘60s. The 24 Hours of Le Mans is an annual endurance race that has been held annually since 1923. Racing teams must attempt to win while also keeping with their cars running for 24 hours without breaking down.
