    The cast for Ryan Gosling's upcoming film "Drive" just keeps getting better and better.

    Christina Hendricks, everyone's favorite office manager on "Mad Men," has joined the cast of "Drive," a crime thriller starring Gosling as a Hollywood stunt driver who moonlights as a getaway driver.

    Adapted from the novel of the same name by James Sallis, the film will find Gosling's character on the run after a bank heist he's involved in goes badly, with an ex-con's girlfriend, played Carey Mulligan, along for the ride.

    The cast already includes "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston as Gosling's mentor and Albert Brooks as a New York City gangster. Hendricks' role is as yet unspecified.

    The cast alone would have us camping out for tickets, but the film is being directed by Nicholas Winding Refn, the mad genius behind "Bronson" (Tom Hardy's breakout role and one of our favorites of 2008) and "Valhalla Rising."

    If this film is anything short of awesome it will break our hearts. Filming begins next month in Los Angeles.
