    Adam Driver plays the role of Maurizio Gucci in Ridley Scott’s ‘House of Gucci’ and Enzo Ferrari in Michael Mann’s ‘Ferrari.’ But playing real-life Italian icons hasn’t been a conscious choice.

    During Adam Driver’s appearance on the SmartLess podcast, hosted by Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett, Driver talks about how people are stuck up on him playing Italian characters.
