Christina Hendricks joins Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan in Drive
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Christina Hendricks doesn’t get much face time around here, mainly because she spends most of her time starring in the TV show ‘Mad Men’ rather than doing movies, but it’s a shame because she’s a very beautiful woman with certain physical traits that almost every man likes (I’m talking about the red hair, get your mind out of the gutter). But I suspect ‘Mad Men’ isn’t going to last forever and pretty soon we’ll start seeing more of Hendricks on the big screen. Next up for Hendricks is a role in the action film DRIVE, starring Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Albert Brooks and Bryan Cranston.
The film is about a Holllywood stunt driver (Gosling) that gets into a world of trouble when he agrees to be a getaway driver for the ex-con boyfriend of his neighbor (Mulligan). Yeah, it sounds a little like THE TRANSPORTER, but I’m guessing they’re going to take a more serious, dramatic turn with this. And I’m interested to see what Gosling does in a straight-forward action film. The film will be directed by Nicolas Winding Refn (BRONSON).
