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.
