ALT TEXTHear that? That's the sound of men's heads exploding everywhere. One of the hottest women in the world -- Christina Hendricks -- just got hotter.

The redheaded bombshell joined the cast of the upcoming action film Drive, which already boasts Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Albert Brooks, Bryan Cranston and Oscar Isaacs.

The film, based on a novel of the same name by James Sallis, tells the story of a Hollywood stunt driver (Gosling) who moonlights as a getaway driver in the L.A. crime underworld. His two worlds eventually collide, putting him in a dangerous situation that he can only beat by doing what he does best -- driving.

So yeah, Christina Hendricks plus Ryan Gosling plus cars and explosions? Uh, yes please!

On top of the obvious opportunity to look super hot while fixing cars, Drive gives Hendricks the chance to stretch her acting skills outside of Madison Avenue in the1960s. She'll bring her strong female voice into a genre -- crime drama -- that's typically dominated by males. If she succeeds, Hendricks could very well become the next go-to-actress in Hollywood.

To quote Roger Sterling, "Way to go, Red."
