Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks was just announced as a character in Need for Speed: The Run, as well as some dude named Sean Faris from something called Vampire Diaries. But enough about Sean Faris. Lets get back to Christina Hendricks. The actress plays a "lead character" in the racing game, Sam Harper:
"A woman with ambition, street smarts and a penchant for lightning fast cars. She’s turned her lifelong passion into a lucrative livelihood, managing the best drivers in the cutthroat world of outlaw street racing. In this illicit, male-dominated racket, she’s betting on Jack, the story’s protagonist, by fronting his $250K race buy-in in hopes of winning the $25 million prize. It’s Sam that enables Jack to enter the race as she remains his eyes and ears on the course."
“It’s very exciting to be part of Need for Speed The Run. I’ve never been a video game character before so this is definitely a first for me. It’s been fantastic fun to do something so different and to show a different side of myself as well,” said Christina Hendricks.
Hendricks, who is my girlfriend, can show any side of herself she'd like.
