Cara Buono Is “Turned On” By Don Draper

“I’m not afraid of working with challenging, powerful men or women for that matter. I get very turned on and it brings out my competitive part of me.”

Cara Buono, who plays Dr. Faye Miller on “Mad Men,” when asked “What is it like to challenge a strong-and ultimately misogynistic- male character like Don Draper?” by Vogue Italia. You’re not the only one, Ms. Buono. [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Quotable: Sally Draper Not Allowed To Watch “Mad Men”

“I’m not allowed to watch the show. My mom will tape it and then show me the scenes she feels are appropriate. [...] I’m very method when I’m on set. It’s just kind of thinking the thoughts of Sally, and I pretty much just become her. It’s a character that I’ve known for a really long time, so it’s pretty easy. [...] I don’t think she’s a bad kid at all. She’s going through a rough time. Don is absent and Betty has never once catered to Sally’s emotional needs, so I feel that they’re not the best parents.”

— Kiernan Shipka, the precocious young actress who plays Sally Draper, Betty and Don’s oldest child, on “Mad Men,” explains how she channels and connects to her character despite not being allowed to watch much of the show. Of Sally’s recent acting out, Kiernan also teases: “Believe it or not, there’s a lot more coming. You’re just gonna have to wait and see what it is.” Can’t wait! [via Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Channeling My Inner Joan Holloway

Last week, I got an email from an editor at The New York Post asking if I might be interested in modeling some “Mad Men”-inspired looks for a story she was working on. Janie Bryant, the costume designer for “Mad Men,” is launching her new clothing line and the editor at the Post had read my essay about Joan Holloway boosting my self-esteem, and thought I’d be perfect to model Janie’s new pieces. Of course I said “yes,” because “Mad Men” is my favorite TV show and I thought it’d be fun to dress up like Joan for a couple hours. Keep reading »

Don Draper’s Just Like All The Rest Of Them

Gah, Don Draper — we’ve dated guys like you a zillion times before. On last night’s episode of “Mad Men,” Don revealed some of his deepest, darkest secrets to his new main squeeze, Dr. Hot Lady Faye Miller. SPOILERS AFTER THE JUMP! Keep reading »

Naturi Naughton To Be First Substantial Black Character On “Mad Men”

Naturi Naughton, who some of you might recognize from the remake of “Fame” or as Lil Kim in “Notorious,” will be the first black character not in a service position (or a criminal) on “Mad Men.” There are no details on what her role will be, but we’re definitely going to tune in this Sunday and hope she makes it through several episodes. Naturi was also in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical “Hairspray” and was one-third of the ’90s female singing group 3LW … that is, until she was forced out by other members Adrienne Bailon and Kiely Williams, who is also rumored to have thrown a plate of KFC at Naturi during a heated argument. Drama! [Just Jared] Keep reading »

Sally Draper Is Really Smart And Plays Golf

Kiernan Shipka, aka Sally Draper of “Mad Men,” is apparently really, really well spoken for a 10-year-old girl. When asked whether she would act like Sally if her parents were like Betty and Don, she said:

“I think Sally’s actually much better than I would be, given her situation. Sally is really, really reserved. Divorce can be terribly stressful and confusing. Add to that an emotionally unresponsive mother and a physically absent father, I think Sally’s actions are pretty tame. If I was experiencing Sally’s situation, I would be a complete terror of a kid.”
