Starring Sean Faris as Jack Rourke and Christina Hendricks as Sam Harper, The Run features an intense race-for-your-life story
Electronic Arts announced today that Christina Hendricks (Mad Men) and Sean Faris (Vampire Diaries) will star in Need for Speed: The Run, a game developed by Black Box that lures players into an underground world of illicit, high-stakes racing. Christina Hendricks makes her videogame debut as 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. Sean Faris gets in the driver's seat as Jack Rourke. One of the best drivers around, Jack’s cockiness and arrogance has led him into a debt he can't repay. The mob has put a price on his head, and it's a lofty one. He's looking for a way out and only Sam can help. His only chance of survival is to enter and win the race to New York. A new trailer is now locally mirrored.
