Tag: Mad Men (53-65 of 105)
Over your turkey hangover yet? No? Good. You may have thought the holiday marathons would end with today’s televised deluge, but you would be wrong. We roll out the best of the rest below, including Spongebob, Battlestar, Mad Men, Glee, and, yes, the Kardashians. We’re talking wall-to-wall weekend television, people. Keep reading…
James Van Der Beek is going to be a father… to Sally Draper!
EW has learned exclusively that Mad Men actress Kiernan Shipka is set to guest on ABC’s Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23 as herself. The storyline finds Van Der Beek (who plays himself on the midseason show) signing on to do a movie playing a single dad after learning Shipka will co-star.
Shipka is the latest of several actors set to appear as themselves on the show, which does not yet have a premiere date. Previously, Kevin Sorbo and Dean Cain were also announced as guest stars.
Fans of Mad Men should know by now that the protracted renegotiation over the show’s future on AMC had nothing to do with the drama’s delayed premiere – but creator Matthew Weiner said the perception still remains that he was, in part, to blame.
In an online interview, Weiner talks about how it was always the plan to debut the fifth season in 2012 but rumors were circulated during the protracted talks that suggested otherwise. “What was interesting in the middle of it, as a tactic, they [AMC] told the public the show was going to be delayed through the non-cast negotiations and that was not true,” Weiner tells his sister and freelancer journalist Allison Hope Weiner. “I was trying to get the show on. And I said it wasn’t true. They have since said it wasn’t true. It was irreversible.” READ FULL STORY
Settle in with your Old Fashioneds, my friends, because we’ve still got a long wait until Mad Men returns to our TV screens. Until then, three new pictures of stars Jon Hamm, John Slattery, and Vincent Kartheiser on set have emerged. And let me tell you, that Don Draper can lean with the best of ‘em. (What can’t that man do?) See more pics of the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce crew after the jump. READ FULL STORY
. She’s not as approachable as the others. She’s really serious about what she does. Everyone else is so nice.”
Jones’ rep has not immediately responded to EW’s request for comment. Looks like Sally isn’t the only young Draper who’s Team Don. Kids say the darndest things!
UPDATED: AMC’s year got off to an awkward start, beginning with very public contract negotiations with Mad Men. Then came the unexpected departure of showrunner Frank Darabont from The Walking Dead, and the revelation that the network was apparently playing hardball with Breaking Bad over a shortened final season. Toss in the audience-frustrating season finale of The Killing, and the network looks like a genuine three-ring circus, albeit a circus defined by moral ambiguity. Last night, Sons of Anarchy showrunner Kurt Sutter drove his metaphorical motorcycle into this metaphorical circus and metaphorically shot the elephant so he could cook it on his metaphorical spit. Metaphors! READ FULL STORY
Peggy Olson in dolphin shorts? Why, the fifth season of Mad Men must take the biggest time jump yet!
We kid. Below is a first-look shot from the Mad Men set as Jon Hamm takes on his new role as director of the show’s highly anticipated season premiere. Also in this rehearsal shot: Elisabeth Moss, co-producer Marcy Patterson, photography director Christopher Manley and executive producer Matthew Weiner. The series, which resumes production in Los Angeles and returns next year, landed the outstanding drama award at the TV critics press club awards on Saturday, with Hamm earning individual achievement in a drama series. Here’s your exclusive pic with a quote from Hamm below:

Just when it was starting to get suspicious that AMC’s Mad Men hadn’t yet announced a date to start its production, here comes this news: The critical fave will begin shooting its much delayed fifth season on Aug. 8, and will premiere next year. It’s unclear how the show will handle January Jones’ pregnancy — whether Betty Draper will be with child, if her figure will be hidden, or if her scenes will be delayed until after she has her baby, which is due in November. In other Mad Men news, the show’s first four seasons have now begun streaming on Netflix… assuming you’ve forgiven Netflix.
It’s been a year since we’ve seen Michael Gladis on Mad Men, but on this Sunday’s Leverage, he’s making a return to the PR world in a big and much more sinister way. Gladis plays Reed Rockwell, a public image consultant who goes above and beyond for his clients. “Often times that includes character assassination or destroying the reputations of his clients’ enemies,” Gladis tells EW.

Mad Men may be renewed for two seasons, but star Jon Hamm is now signed for three. AMC recently made a deal with showrunner Matthew Weiner to continue the retro drama for a couple more years, with a strong possibility of doing a third. Now it looks like the show is set to finish its run in a grand total of seven seasons now that sources confirm Hamm has inked a deal with producer Lionsgate TV for a trio of years. The show still hasn’t started production on season five, but the writers room is in full swing.
The Critics’ Choice Television Awards — created by the recently established Broadcast Television Critics Association — were designed in part to be a counterpoint to the annual Emmy Awards (and the more established TCA Awards). The winners of the first annual CCTAs, however, echoed several Emmy winners of the recent past: AMC’s Mad Men took home Best Drama; ABC’s Modern Family won Best Comedy; Best Actress in a Comedy went to 30 Rock‘s Tina Fey; and The Big Bang Theory‘s Jim Parsons earned Best Actor in a Comedy.
The majority of winners, however, have not snagged an Emmy award — or, in some cases, even a nomination — but remain long-standing fan favorites. READ FULL STORY
The original Danish television version of The Killing edged out three American dramas — Mad Men, Glee, and Boardwalk Empire — to win the BAFTA award for Best International series.
