Blaney, the 23-year-old third generation NASCAR driver, will guest star in the upcoming season of NBC’s “Taken,” a TV series which serves as a prequel to the Liam Neeson film franchise in which Clive Standen plays Bryan Mills decades before the movies.

Mills works with former CIA operative Christina Hart and a team of fellow operatives to tackle missions around the world.

Blaney will appear in the episode, “Imperium,” which is scheduled to air in 2018 (The second season of the show premiers Jan. 12), and will feature Blaney as a special FBI agent with distinct driving skills.

Blaney just completed his second full-time season in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He picked up his first series victory and led the legendary Wood Brothers Racing team to the NASCAR playoffs for the first time.

This isn’t Blaney’s first venture into Hollywood. He appeared as one of the NASCAR drivers in the film, “Logan Lucky,” and lent his voice to a character in Disney’s “Cars 3.”
