Don't Get Mad At Need For Speed: The Run's Biggest Star

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks' latest role? Need for Speed: The Run.

According to PopWatch, the actress will play a character by the name of Sam Harper. "She's got a relationship with the main driver player," explained Hendricks, about her role with the game's protagonist Jack Rourke. "They come from the same hood. She gets him involved in the cross-country race with a lot of money at stake. There's an element of pushing him but also taking care of him."

While Hendricks is not a gamer, her husband is. "My husband's constantly running to GameStop because something's being released the next day," she told PopWatch. Maybe he reads Kotaku, too. If so, hello there!

Hendricks doesn't sound like she's much of a gearhead, either. "For years, I have been driving a PT Cruiser," said Hendricks. "I like that I can put tons of stuff in it." Because apparently she has tons of things to stuff in it?

Need for Speed: The Run will be out next month. Hopefully, Hendricks can get her husband a copy so he doesn't have to run over to GameStop.

    I am straight for this woman. Seriously. I would do everything.

      Oh yeah. Sometimes I call myself "The Booby Watcher". I even have my own comic book. "The Adventures of The Booby Watcher".

        Never stare at the boobies, kid. Once you get caught, the game's over.

    I'm looking forward to this game, even more so now that she is going to be in it!

    Her voice is in it, sure. That's all well and good, but ARE HER BOOBS IN IT?


    Creepy hair-touching hand is creepy.

      It looks like she has a midget arm!

        lol, I didn't even notice that before. I wonder why ... Even when I try and concentrate on the hand, they're still totally visible and whispering 'lick me, lick me'

      Once it has been seen it can't be unseen O.o!

      WTF where did that hand come from?!

    The world always has room for more To/Saf/Bridge.

      Damn typo. YO/Saf/Bridge.


        Yeah she was stunning on Firefly. Not a fan of her look on Mad Men though, I blame the wardrobe.

    Take all that make-up off & she'll be as ugly as foot..

      That's funny. I'm totally the opposite. I see her and think "Jeez, tone down the makeup and you'll be attractive again..."

    An excellent excuse to show off those assets.

    Normally driving games come with a warning that "airbag deployment is not simulated" - I guess this one won't have to carry that warning.

    Does the game offer the option to turn on the 'high-beams'?

    good redheads are good

    The things I would eat out of her ass.... wait wat?

    So the original postergirls weren't pulling in enough preorders and now they've gone all in.
