For its first season, The Grand Tour's famous-person-interview segment was called Celebrity Brain Crash. Unfortunately, every celebrity invited suffered some kind of horrific, violent death on his or her way to the stage.
For season two, The Grand Tour has done away with that bit, and will instead pit two celebrities against each other to see who's quickest around a track. The segment is called Celebrity Face Off, and features two guests who are related in unusual ways.
But like Top Gear before it, The Grand Tour will rely heavily on English celebrities—and only men for now, apparently. So for Americans watching the show, we put together a brief introduction for all the guests The Grand Tour has announced.
Does "The Hoff," shown above with Jeremy Clarkson, really need an introduction?
That's the guy who isn't Jeremy Clarkson or David Hasselhoff pictured at the top of this post. He's the host of The Voice UK. He's facing off against the Hoff, who's currently the hose of America's Got Talent.
Evans played bad guy Owen Shaw in Fast & Furious 6. He also had cameos in the two most recent Fast and Furious movies. More recently, he played Gaston in the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.
Along with Hassellhoff, Sutherland is the only American set to appear on the show. He became a legend playing Jack Bauer in the TV series 24, and currently stars in Designated Survivor, a political drama.
Bonneville starred in Downton Abbey, the wildly successful Post-Edwardian period drama that no one from R&T watched. Apparently, we need to tune in to PBS more often.
Pietersen played a game called "cricket" professionally. I, an American, had never heard of it.
Cooper is an English actor who plays Howard Stark, Tony's father, in the Marvel cinematic universe. He was also in that Need For Speed movie.
Dynamo, not his real name, is an English magician—not a DC generator.
Rory McIlroy, MBE, is a Northern Irish golfer, who's achieved great success on the PGA tour. Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May aren't exactly the world's biggest golf fans, so this should be interesting.
Michael Ball and Alfie Boe
Ball and Boe are two different people, both English musical theatre actors and singers. They recorded a few albums together, so we're gonna guess that they appear on the show together.
The Grand Tour season two will premiere on Amazon Prime Video on December 8th. Willson and Hasselhoff will be the first celebrity guests, and more will be announced as the season goes on.
