‘Mad Men’ Star Christina Hendricks Prepared to ‘Drive’ with Refn

By  · Published on September 9th, 2010

There’s something perfect about the sass-filled sex pot of Mad Men joining a film directed by a man who said that “art [was] an act of violence.” There’s nothing poppy and light about Christina Hendricks’s show, but it’s downright froth compared to the madness that was Nicolas Winding Refn’s Bronson.

It’ll be great to see what they have in store for each other.

Refn’s next project is Drive— a film starring Ryan Gosling as a stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver (because even stunt driving aint payin’ the bills these days). It also features the brilliant Albert Brooks, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston and, now (according to Variety), Christina Hendricks. It won’t be her first feature film role, but it will be her second major after she’s seen in Life As We Know It ‐ which sounds like a Sundance film but is actually a Katherine Heigl rom-com.
