(Another) Quote Of The Day: Pete Campbell Is Kinda Deep In Real Life
” Is Pete in love with Peggy? How in love with her is he? Why is he in love with her? Is it really just his ego? I mean, how many times have you been in love with a woman until she loves you back? And then you realize it had nothing to do with her. Or a woman cheats on you and you hate her for decades and then you realize, it’s just my ego. I just couldn’t handle that she, like, wanted someone else—it had nothing to even do with this woman. And I think that’s the kind of grey area that these characters get to live in and that we get to portray—you say these long moments of silence.”
—Vincent Kartheiser, who plays Pete Campbell on “Mad Men,” talks to Vanity Fair, about why Pete’s got a thing for Peggy. But what we really wanted to know is where he learned to dance the Charleston.
