“Mad Men”‘s Falling Man Gets Graffitied Up

I’m so accustomed to seeing penises scrawled on Reese Witherspoon’s face on those “This Means War” posters that it’s refreshing to see graffiti that’s not an ode to the male anatomy. Oh, I’m sorry. Are we not supposed to call it “graffiti”? Is it called “street art” because the doodles are on posters for “Mad…

Hang Don Draper By The Neck

We’ve got another month and a half to go until season five of “Mad Men” starts on March 25, and fans can’t wait to find out where things stand with Don Draper, his family, and everyone else at Sterling Cooper Draper Price. We found just the thing to wear to a premiere party — thi…

Jon Hamm On Don And Peggy’s Subordi-Friendship

“I think in the world of the show we see the office through Peggy’s eyes. She’s the new girl and we see her from her very first day… And we’ve watched through over 50 episodes of television her grow and become more confident and we’ve watched Don alternately shout at her and correct her and…

Is This “Mad Men” Ad Insensitive To 9/11 Victims?

Oooh. That’s no good. Who thought this was a good advertisement to put in downtown Manhattan? I love “Mad Men” as much as the next latte-drinking, Volvo-driving, East Coast liberal and I know the image of man in a suit falling from the sky in the opening credits is powerful iconography tied to the show.

January Jones Admits “Everybody Hates Me”

“I find it really interesting that people think that, like, in seasons three and four, she’s become unlikable because she’s become more independent. Everybody liked Betty when she was, like, in a living hell in season one and two, and now they hate her. … I think as an audience member you can empathize with…

Matthew Weiner Promises “Mad Men” Will Not End In A Fart

“I do know how the whole show ends … It came to me in the middle of last season. I always felt like it would be the experience of human life. And human life has a destination. It doesn’t mean Don’s gonna die. What I’m looking for, and how I hope to end the show,…

Kiernan Shipka Of “Mad Men” Analyzes Other Child Stars

It’s about 10 years too late to help Shia LaBeouf. But maybe Kiernan Shipka can still do some good in the wild and crazy world of child stars. She has certainly spent long enough in the child psychologist’s office on “Mad Men.” Most of the sessions in this Funny Or Die video are pretty cool,…

Why Are The Best Shows On TV About Dudes?

There’s an interesting essay Chuck Klosterman wrote (it’s really very good, read the whole thing here) where he postulates:
There doesn’t seem to be much debate over what have been the four best television shows of the past 10 years. It seems like an easy question to answer, particularly since it’s become increasingly difficult

Casting Close Call: Thomas Jane Could Have Been Don Draper

Jon Hamm has nabbed himself four Emmys playing the now-iconic role of Don Draper on “Mad Men.” But apparently, he was not producers first choice for the role. And he actually knows who the makers of the show originally had in mind for the starring role—Thomas Jane of “Hung.” “Nobody knew who I was. The…

Don Draper Is Back!

Jon Hamm was spotted filming scenes from the upcoming — sigh, next year — of “Mad Men” in LA this week. I am really digging that super skinny tie. Also, there hasn’t been a lean this sexy since Jordan Catalano. (If you don’t get this reference, I order you to Netflix “My So-Called Life” immediately!)…

Christina Ricci Says “Pan Am” Isn’t A “Mad Men” Knockoff

“It’s a great comparison to get; ‘Mad Men’ is a great show and I’m a huge fan. But that does focus more on a man’s experience of that time period and this is much more about these women. These were really women who were taking control of their lives and living in a very feminist…

Less Is More In These “Mad Men” Season 5 Posters

Mad Men” season five is still months and months away, and these unofficial promo posters are only adding to the anticipation. Whose lipstick is that? What’s in those letters? Do the sunglasses mean Don is going to California again? Am I just overthinking everything? Probably. Like I said, these posters are not official but they…

Bobby Draper Warns His Replacement About January Jones

“Be careful around January [Jones] … She’s not as approachable as the others. She’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.”
Jared Gilmore who plays Bobby Draper on “Mad Men” gives words of advice to his replacement. Yes, Jared is moving on to bigger and better gigs than being Betty…

Julianne Moore To Star In A New “Mad Men”-esque Show

“Dope” is a new television show that sounds like the perfect combination of everything I love—one part “Mad Men,” one part “Breaking Bad,” one part “Bored to Death,” and one part “The Good Wife.” And even better—it will be produced by and star the amazing Julianne Moore. Julianne is developing the show for HBO alongside…

A “Mad Men” Rap? Watch Kellee Maize’s Feminist-Inspired Rhymes

 

LOVE! Rapper Kellee Maize sampled the “Mad Men” theme song for a song called “Mad Humans.” It’s sorta all about feminism: “Puttin’ the patriarchy to bed / yeah, you heard right, that’s what I said!” Maize is rolling deep with ’60s housewives wearing strings of pearls and vacant stares. Just wait till…

How Matthew Weiner Will Work January Jones’ Pregnancy Into “Mad Men”

“She has wanted this very badly. She’s got a big heart and she’s been talking about having children since I met her, which is not always common with actresses. She is going to be someone who is so devoted … I have to do something about [the pregnancy on ‘Mad Men’] but I’m not going…

“Mad Men”‘s Kiernan Shipka Makes Her Own Clothes

So, aside from getting to play future-lesbian (we think, anyway) daughter Sally Draper on “Mad Men,” the extremely articulate and thoughtful Kiernan Shipka has a couple other tricks up her sleeve. The 11-year-old actress mostly dresses in vintage-y frocks from Portuguese designer Papo d’Anjo, but she also designs and wears her own bespoke creations, inspired…

Jon Hamm To Direct Season Premiere Of “Mad Men”

Speaking of hot, self-directed guys, today we get some exciting news from the set of “Mad Men.” After months of tenuous negotiation, the new season is now in production. And apparently, Jon Hamm—aka Don Draper—will be directing the season premiere. “The wheels have officially been set in motion to make that happen,” he said. “It’…

Betty Draper Wasn’t In The Original “Mad Men” Pilot

January Jones opened up to W magazine and revealed that when it came to casting the role of secretary Peggy Olsen on “Mad Men,” she was thisclose to getting the part, but also that the role she eventually was cast for — Betty Draper, the icy blonde homemaker wife of anti-hero Don Draper — wasn’t…
