Trace Adkins in no stranger to the big screen.  He played the Angel of Death in An American Carol and Jimmy Knox in the movie Lifted.  This time he teams up with Matthew McConaughey to play the leader of a biker gang in Lincoln Lawyer, opening in theaters this weekend.

His country star status had nothing to do with him landing the role.  The director told him he got the part because of his audition.  In fact, he had no idea who Trace was.  Trace says, "I thought I was a bigger deal than than, but I guess not."
