New Need for Speed: The Run trailer stars Christina Hendricks and some guy

Christina Hendricks appearing in live action is unforgettable whether it’s as part of Mad Men’s stellar cast or via Google image search results , so seeing a digital representation of her should be only be about 25 percent less striking by our estimation. Today EA revealed that its upcoming entry in the Need for Speed franchise, Need for Speed: The Run, features the stunning actress playing what seems to be the lead’s love interest. Oh, and a guy named Sean Farris from Vampire Diaries plays that lead whom she’ll be interested in.

As nice as the actors might look in-game, the cars look even better, as the trailer features some pretty impressive visuals that EA asserts is all real time gameplay footage. Though the game is due out November 15, you can get a taste of it now in the demo that hit Xbox Live and PSN.

    Def looks fun but I don't quite know if it's a must buy yet.

    I have to admit that besides from the E3 reveal trailer and the stupid tie in deals EA has done a good job of hyping this game and it has made me just a tad excited.

    Actually I really like the concept for this game. It is perfect for a racing series that has always featured slightly arcadish style racing. It provides tons of opportunity for great cop chases across varying environments. I think this could be really good.

    So I'm guessing this game is going to royally suck based on the fact that they are jamming in 2 gorgeous models and Christina Hendricks (who by the way, looks nothing like herself in that video) just to distract us from the reality that this is a driving game with a crummy story and average gameplay. I'll use the internet to see the models for free, thanks.

    Ok, WTF video game industry? Nearly every female character in every game has insanely large boobs. But then, when you model a character after a real woman famous for having insanely large boobs, you don't even show them in your trailer? I'm pretty sure they're just trolling right now.
