Larry The Cable Guy may seem like a tough guy on the outside, but as he retold this story he couldn't help but get very emotional when talking about landing the part of Mater in Disney's 'Cars.'
Larry says that his greatest success in his career as a comedian was winning the role in this iconic Pixar movie. Larry had been a huge fan of Pixar's animated movies for years before they contacted him.
Just watch as he recounts how this amazing story unfolded. You can see just from looking at his face, how much this truly means to him. I'm so glad to see that this funny guy is kind and humble.
The movie Cars has since spawned two sequels and Mater's character will always hold a special place in Larry's heart. Who else was tearing up through this with me?
