Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and Sean Faris (Vampire Diaries) will star in Need for Speed: The Run, EA has announced.

The pair take on the roles of the game's lead characters. Christina Hendricks, the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actress who plays the savvy Joan in the hit AMC drama Mad Men, makes her video game debut in Need for Speed The Run as Sam Harper: a woman with ambition, street smarts and a penchant for fast cars. A manager of the best drivers in the cutthroat world of outlaw street racing, she bets on Jack Rourke (played by Sean Faris), the game's protagonist, by fronting his $250K race buy-in in hopes of winning the $25 million prize.

"Our innovative, all-new performance capture technology pushes the boundaries of character animation allowing us to perfectly capture Christina and Sean's likeness resulting in an engaging narrative experience coupled with top-notch racing," said Jason DeLong, executive producer.

Need for Speed: The Run will be released November 17 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, Wii and Nintendo 3DS.

No need for the airbags though, if Joan's figure is anything to go by!

Jordana Brewster would be a perfect fit for a Need for Speed character. She was damn fine in Season 2 of Chuck, and obviously played roles in Fast & Furious films.

I do like her as an actress, but still NO sale. It saddens me to think EA think some people will buy this *just* because it has an attractive, semi-well-known actress in it. Typical EA.

The one in Mad Men with the bum.

I saw her in Firefly first, though - while she was still underground. Indie Cred +2

I'm not saying she's not super hot, because she is, but Christina Hendricks is proof that at a certain point breasts become udders.
