Seth Green is a skilled actor in Hollywood, even though he doesn’t have a movie count like Tom Cruise or Will Smith but he does have some of his notable roles. Green played the character Lyle in a 2003 movie The Italian Job. Though his role wasn’t that focused and elaborated but was memorable. The character Green got was something he had experienced before too. He wanted to make sure that his character should blend with every star he was working with as the movie had an all-star cast.

Seth Green recalled how he was surprised to know about one of his car chase scenes. The director of The Italian Job, F. Gary Gray, asked Green if he was okay with not driving a car making him think that the scene had been cut. But later Green found out that he’s been replaced.

“So they cast that additional guy, Franky G, and he wound up being the other driver. Gary says to me about a week in, ‘Hey, Seth, we’re rewriting a bunch of this stuff, and it doesn’t look like you’re going to be driving the car. Are you cool with that?’ And I said, ‘What you actually said to me is that I’m going to have about six weeks off in the middle of this production while everybody else is filming all the coverage around the heist.’”

Seth Green told this to Vulture, explaining how he learned about getting replaced by another actor named Franky G as the driver in that scene. Seth Green wasn’t expecting this when he was given six weeks off from filming the movie as he thought the actors were working on a different aspect of the movie.
