Now playing in theaters is director Scott Waugh’s Need for Speed.  For those unfamiliar with the film, it’s based on the hugely popular video game series and it chronicles a cross-country race against time as a blue-collar mechanic (Aaron Paul) who was framed for manslaughter by a wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver (Dominic Cooper) sets out for revenge in a high-stakes underground racing tournament.  Need for Speed also stars Imogen PootsMichael KeatonDakota JohnsonScott Mescudi, Ramon Rodriguez, Rami Malek and Kid Cudi.  For more on the film, here’s all our previous coverage.

At the Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with Mescudi, Rodriguez and Malek.  They talked about getting to work with the amazing cars, filming the practical stunts, what city they’d love to return to (they filmed all around the United States), and previous and future projects like Short Term 12, Fox’s Gang Related, and the Entourage movie.  Hit the jump to watch.
