Mad Men

1Mad Men Fashion Post!

The cast of Mad Men got together at the Paley Center for Media’s PaleyFest 2014 honoring the show, but what’s really important is what they wore. Let’s take a look!

Sadly, my favorite January Jones wasn’t there. Not sure why. Maybe she’s shooting something. Like BIRDS IN HER BACKYARD, AM I RIGHT? (Mad Men joke, okay, moving on.)

Mad Men is FINALLY coming back on April 13, a Sunday. And they’ve unveiled the new artwork for its final season (technically they cut the final season into 2 parts to stretch it out). The artwork is above.

It’s very groovy and Bob Dylan inspired:

I am VERY excited for the return of Mad MenDo you think they’ll finally be able to corral Jon’s Hamm? If ya know what I mean?

Also maybe this new hippie era will mean less shaving time for Mr. Hamm.

1Ellen Gives Us Mad Men Minus Cigarettes

ellen-mad-men-without-cigarettes

Ellen DeGeneres wanted to do something for The Great American Smokeout that happened yesterday (you know, a whole day of “let’s not smoke, America”) so she gave us Mad Men with a twist. Instead of smoking cigarettes, you’ll see Don Draper blowing noisemakers. You know, like those HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! things. It’s pretty funny.

Now let’s see Kate Moss without cigarettes. Ha ha, funny joke!

0Jon Ham On Don Draper: “He’s Despicable”

don-draper-jon-hamm

Jon Hamm‘s Don Draper may have a lot of fans, but Hamm isn’t one of them. He thinks the Mad Men character he plays is actually “despicable”. He totally has a point but he may also be a little pissed that in order to play Draper, he has to shave 2-3 times per day. Here’s what he told the Observer about Draper, via Huffington Post:

I am very cognizant that I am playing a character. Don Draper is a pretty dismal, despicable guy, so why I would want to take him home with me I don’t know … It’s a strange thing. People tell me they look up to Don, like they look up to Tony Soprano or Walter White [in 'Breaking Bad']. People have these weird fascinations with people who in reality you would not want to be for a second. There seems to be that vicarious thrill. Maybe it is the fact of doing everything wrong and getting away with it.

[Mad Men] has been a solid 25 percent of my existence on the planet. But that’s enough, I think.

So yeah, Mr. Hamm is definitely ready to see Mr. Draper go. And we will all miss certain parts of him very much.

0Jon Hamm Shaves Face 2-3 Times Per Day

jon-hamm-don-draper

Jon Hamm and Mad Men fans, this one’s for you. The rest of you can file it under Who Gives A F-ck? According to Mad Men makeup artist, Lana Horochowski, most of the makeup required for the men is face shaving. Frequently. As many as 2-3 times per DAY. Ouch. From Huffington Post:

For so long, they were all so clean-shaven. We shoot such long hours, and for Jon, [Hamm] we shave sometimes two, three times a day. Now that we’re in the later season, some of them are wearing fake facial hair. It’s more skin maintenance. We throw a little tinted moisturizer on them.

I would be remiss if I didn’t throw in a joke about Hamm’s monster dong, but I can’t think of any. Someone want to take the wheel?

This makeup artist sounds almost as meticulous as Nicole Kidman’s crazy hair stylist.
