SI swimsuit models Irina Shayk and Chrissy Teigen are lending their supple bodies to EA to be used as characters in the upcoming Need for Speed: The Run. They will be playing as lifelong friends who are competitors and rivals with the protagonist, Jack, in the race across the nation.

It may make for a bit of overzealous advertising as Sports Illustrated tries to get embedded in your subconscious as you fly by billboards and the like due to this joint venture, but look at it this way, if you are going to be looking at ads in game or at the polygons of the other drivers, it may as well be supermodels right?

Let’s just hope that their acting is as good as their looks so we don’t end up with some flat dialogue from their characters.

Besides the addition of some eye candy, the rest of the game seems quite interesting. A Cannonball Run style race across the US from LA to New York with the Need for Speed appeal of cops chasing your character for some reason. They’ve also claimed this will have the most track

Release date: 11-15-2011
