Carey Mulligan co-stars as Irene, a woman in Driver's apartment building with a young son and a husband about to get out of jail.
Brayn Cranston plays Shannon, Driver's mentor/manager who sets him up with jobs in both his professions and wants to find investors so Driver can start racing.
Shannon turns to the richest guy he knows, Bernie Rose, played by Albert Brooks, to help fund the venture.
Bernie is so impressed by watching Driver at the track, he insists on bringing in his friend Nin, played by Ron Perlman, to help finance things as well.
Driver's personal life gets sticky when Standard, Irene's husband, finally gets out of jail and feels threatened by the presence of another man in his wife's life.
Christina Hendricks also has a small role in the film, as a character named Blanche.
