Teyonah Parris On Playing “Mad Men”‘s First Black Employee

“I know that this show hasn’t had an African-American in the office and I know that comes with a lot of responsibility as to how I portray this woman, but I can’t think about that. I can only go in and do what I think this woman would do. I try not to think, ‘Oh,…

Evening Quickies: Why Do We Care So Much About Fat Betty?

Why do people care so much about that Betty Draper Francis has gotten fat in order to conceal actress January Jones’ pregnancy on “Mad Men”? I know it’s a shocking look for Betty, but people on the interwebs are really freaking out about it. [Personally, I just enjoy a fat suit. — Editor] [Huffington Post]…

Zou Bisou Bisou: 10 Things To Know About “Mad Men”‘s Jessica Paré

Like most “Mad Men” fans, I was not sure about Don Draper boning, then abruptly marrying, his new secretary, Megan. I wasn’t surprised he got under Megan’s skirt so quickly, of course. But given Don record of getting the golden ticket and then discarding women, I puzzled over why he saw Megan as a keeper.

Watch Megan’s Rendition Of “Zou Bisou Bisou” On “Mad Men”

I’m not so into recapping shows, but let me just say this of last night’s “Mad Men” season five premiere: I liked it! And what’s more, I liked Megan, Don’s former secretary and the new Mrs. Draper. Don’s still f**ked in the head, of course, but Megan has a certain way with him that I…

John Slattery Has A Bobby Draper Problem

“Coincidentally, that kid doesn’t play Bobby Draper any more. Not because of what he said, but because … well, for other reasons. They’ve had about five Bobby Drapers and they can’t seem to find one who doesn’t look straight into the lens.”
–“Mad Men”‘s amazing John Slattery on the proliferation of Bobby Drapers on the…

Where Are The Black Folks On “Mad Men”? Matt Weiner Explains

Forget for a second that every guest on “Charlie Rose,” a PBS news program for wonks, looks like they’re struggling to stay awake. The cast of “Mad Men” appeared last night with guest host Gayle King and she pressed the show’s creator, Matt Weiner, with a good question: where are the black folks? “As you…

Don Draper’s Relationships On “Mad Men,” From Most To Least Dysfunctional

As a woman who loves “Mad Men,” which returns to AMC this Sunday, I’m both besotted with and disgusted by Don Draper, who somehow manages to be both tenderly flawed and nakedly brutal at the same time. Don burns through women faster than some people change socks. Some of those women try to change him…

Vincent Kartheiser Stands Up For Jon Hamm’s “Idiots” Kardashian Comment

“I don’t think [Jon Hamm was] wrong. It’s OK to look at something and say what it is. It’s OK to look at a McDonald’s hamburger and say, ‘Yeah, I like the taste of them, but they’re not good for me.’ We live in a time where everyone’s very aware that there’s people who are celebritie…

January Jones Comes Down Hard On Public Childhood Masturbation

“You know, Sally shouldn’t be masturbating at other people’s houses or she’s going to get slapped.”
– January Jones defends Betty Draper — specifically her decision to smack tween daughter Sally after she was busted diddling herself at a neighbor’s house — in an interview with The Daily. You know, I could easily write,…

“Mad Men”‘s Don Draper And Roger Sterling, A Love Story

Is it true that the real love story on “Mad Men” is actually between Roger Sterling and Don Draper? Perhaps it is, perhaps it is. I know I’d like that to be true, and so does Elisa Kreisinger, who created this awesomely subversive take on the show. “The goal was to tell a story about…

“Mad Men” Mashup: The Ladies Sing The Supremes

T-minus five days until “Mad Men” is back on-air and this will get you pumped! Video artists Elisa Kreisinger and Marc Faletti have remixed the ladies of “Mad Men” singing a kickass mashup of The Supremes song “You Keep Me Hangin’ On.” You’ve probably heard the song before — but you’ve never heard it like…

Evening Quickies: Jon Hamm Digs His Kardashian Hole A Little Bit Deeper

The cast of “Mad Men” hit “The Today Show” and of course they asked Jon Hamm about his recent remarks implying that Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian are “f**king idiots,” which Kim did not appreciate. “It’s a part of our culture that I certainly don’t identify with and I don’t really understand the appeal…

Love It Or Hate It: Alison Brie At The “Mad Men” Premiere

Alison Brie is the cutest. And in this outfit she wore to the premiere of “Mad Men” earlier this week, she’s really channeled her character Trudy Campbell. But is it too much? Does she look costume-y instead of retro-inspired? What do you say?

That’s A Lot Of Look: January Jones At The “Mad Men” Premiere

Okay, so this dress, with just a bunch of side cut outs would have been great. Or just a bunch of weird ruffles on the bottom. Sure, I’d abide. But the combo of the two might just qualify for over-complicating what could be a very pretty garment. Either way, she’s a pretty bangin’ MILF, wouldn’t…

Elisabeth Moss Doesn’t Have Good Things To Say About Split From Fred Armisen

“One of the greatest things I heard someone say about him is, ‘He’s so great at doing impersonations. But the greatest impersonation he does is that of a normal person.’ To me that sums it up … I don’t want to waste any more of my life talking about it.”

Stop Asking Elisabeth Moss If Don And Peggy Are Going To Sleep Together On “Mad Men”

Elisabeth Moss: People are constantly asking if [Don Draper and Peggy Olsen are] gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen — that to me is really interesting and rarely done well.

Here’s “Mad Men” Official Season 5 Poster — But What Does It All Mean?

Every week it seems like there is new art for the “Mad Men” season five premiere, not that we mind. This is the “official” art and it sure is perplexing. Don Draper is staring at a pair of mannequins, including a naked female mannequin, and his own reflection in a department store window. What does
