“Mad Men” stars Christina Hendricks and John Slattery visit the BBC Studios in London, England on August 4, 2014. The pair are busy promoting their new movie, “God’s Pocket,” which turned out to be one of late Phillip Seymour Hoffman’s final films.
She also talked about how her agency ended up dropping her because she signed on to play Joan on AMC’s “Mad Men”. She revealed, “They said, ‘It’s a period piece, it’s never going to go anywhere. We need you to make money and this isn’t going to make money.’ They ended up dropping me.”
She added, “I had been on several shows that were meant to be the big ones, that would go on forever, and they didn’t. So there was no sure bet and I’d already taken a chance on them, and I felt, why not do the one you’re in love with and take a chance on that?”

Kiernan Shipka (she grew up so cute and I love her dress and hair- her whole look):
Jessica Pare (60′s hot mama):
Elisabeth Moss (she’s rad):
January Jones (Of course she’s beautiful but the dress isn’t doing her any favors):
Christina Hendricks (Meow. I wish I had red hair like hers. And rocked it like she does. I just kind of love her. The true definition of sexy.):

Jon Hamm is back on the set of ‘Mad Men’! The seventh and final season of ‘Mad Men’ will return on April 13th on AMC.
Here’s to hoping the final season will be better than the last several seasons. It just lost its mojo after Don and Betty divorced, if you ask me.

We’re finally getting our first look at season 6 of ‘Mad Men’, in black and white! Tell me this doesn’t get you all excited! I’m happy to see Betty back in shape, no more ridiculous fat suit! I can’t wait to see what happens next!!
In case you thought ‘Mad Men’ might be tiring of its peerlessly stylish production values as it gets set for Series 6, these images, just released, should reassure you.
Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and his acolytes are all looking at their suave, urbane best in these black and white shots, with the girls looking as feminine and shapely as always.
And, as usual, the ladies seem to be involuntarily bound to attend to The Don, all but a pensive-looking Peggy (Elisabeth Moss), while the gentlemen continue to plot their way around New York’s most dynamic advertising agency.
Jon Hamm spoke to HuffPostUK last year, when he told us, “It’s lovely to be part of the success ‘Mad Men’ has been, there’s no denying that – it’s been the singular thing I could point to in my life that I’m most proud of, from a work-related standpoint – and it continues to be a source of pride, and a challenge.
“I love going to work on the show, and I’m incredibly happy to get to it, and the fact that it’s been successful and continues to be, is something that I can say, I’m just very lucky.”

‘Mad Men’ is coming back! AMC has announced that Don Draper & co. will return on April 7th at 9:00PM with a two-hour premiere! On April 14th it will move to it’s regular 10:00PM timeslot. It was also announced that Jon Hamm directed the second episode of season 6.
“Mad Men” creator and executive producer Matt Weiner revealed some details on the new season. “We’re at the next stage of their lives and I think you really feel that … There’s an attempt to explore an internal dynamic,” he told EW. In regards to Don Draper (Hamm), Weiner added, “I’m sure there’s some version of it in the previous five [seasons], but I want to acknowledge the fact that the audience knows this man very well, so what he does is never going to surprise them. How he does it and why he does it should surprise them.”
When “Mad Men” returns, there’s a time jump, but Weiner declined to say how much time has gone by since Season 5 ended. And fear not, everybody — including Elisabeth Moss — will be back, but in what capacity? You’ll have to tune in.
“I can tell you their names are in the credits,” Weiner told TV Guide. “And none of the cast has been let go.”
The end of the series is on the horizon and Weiner says the writers want to ensure they tell every story they want to tell. “With the shadow of the show ending — and with the world in the state that it’s in, which is far more important than the show — the writers and the actors and I have been able to get into a groove about a season that may be accidentally relevant just because it was in our minds,” he told EW. “We’ve been taking advantage of the 26 episodes we have left to do all the things that we’ve wanted to do, and so far I think that the audience is in for quite a ride.”
I really hope that Season 6 will get back to what Season 1-4 were like. Season 5 was a royal dud for me. The fat suit for Betty? Ugh, really??? The suicide?? Don’s new wife (I know a lot of you like her, but me….not so much.)
I’m ready to see what the new season brings!
