Megan the secretary
Don Draper has not yet boned his new secretary, Megan. But judging by the long, lingering look he held on her while she touched up her lipstick at the end of this week's episode, it's only a matter of time. Something tells us actress Jessica Paré is well-prepared to fend off lurid looks based on her experience in this year's movie "Hot Tub Time Machine." Classic film, that one. Jessica, 27, is originally from Montreal, Quebec, where she attended a Catholic high school, acted in high school theater, and, duh, speaks both French and English. Jessica told the Canadian magazine Maclean's in 2000 that she once tried modeling but was told she is "too fat." Crazy! She's been married since 2007 and these days live in L.A. You might recognize Jessica as Josh Hartnett's fiancée in "Wicker Park" or from the vampire flick "Suck." Fun fact: Jessica Paré also starred on the TV show "Jack & Bobby" alongside Matt Long, the hottie freelance artist Joey whom Peggy fired for sexual harassment a few episodes ago. And, ZOMG, Jessica Paré was in exactly one episode of "The Babysitters Club" TV show back in the '90s. Be gentle with her, Don.
