Christina Hendricks in NFS: The Run

Plus some bloke from Vampire Diaries.

Christina Hendricks of Mad Men fame will star as your girlfriend in EA racer Need for Speed: The Run.

A motion-captured version of Hendricks plays a lead role in the game's story as love interest Sam Harper.

Gamers take on the role of Jack Rourke, played by Sean Farris. Farris recently guest-starred in supernatural teen drama The Vampire Diaries and played Kyo Kusanagi in the film version of The King of Fighters.

Need for Speed: The Run's driving sections will be blended with a mixed of out-of-vehicle chase sequences and cut-scenes expanding the game's story.

The Black Box-developed racer launches 18th November in the UK. Can't wait until then? A demo launched on Xbox Live Marketplace earlier today.
