Need for Speed: The Run features Christina Hendricks, Sean Faris

Electronic Arts has announced actors Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and Sean Faris (Never Back Down) will star as the main characters in Need for Speed: The Run. The pair will offer their voices and likenesses for the project.

Need for Speed: The Run is in development at EA Black Box (PC, Xbox 360, PS3) and Firebrand Games (Wii, 3DS) and launches on November 15.

Faris plays the role of Jack Rourke, a driver on the run from the mob. Hendricks will take on the role of Sam Harper, a racing manager that bankrolls Jack's trek from San Francisco to New York.

Though investing in a criminal whose sole task is to drive from one part of the country all the way to the other, while being hunted by the cops and the mob seems like a bad investment, we're almost positive you're not a banker.
