'Mad Men': In defense of Betty Draper Francis

January Jones makes her first appearance as Betty Draper Francis on Season 7b of "Mad Men"on Sunday (April 12). In other words, expect to soon see a bunch of "Ugh, Betty is the worst" comments on social media.Betty is hardly the most sympathetic character on the show, granted. The fact that she's consistently been casually cruel to daughter Sally (Kiernan Shipka) -- who probably is the show's most sympathetic character -- has also colored fans' perception of Betty. But Betty (and by extension, Jones, who gets more than her share of flak for her character's actions) isn't so much a bad person as one who's stuck."I'm so sick of defending her," Jones tells Zap2it and a handful of other reporters at the final "Mad Men" press junket. "I think she does a pretty good job, considering. I think people who have a hard time or dislike Betty, it's because they see themselves in her."RELATED: 'Mad... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/4af4ucHinSw/mad_men_defending_betty_draper_francis-2015-04

'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm's cruel fraternity hazing stunt surfaces

Jon Hamm, star of AMC's hit drama "Mad Men," was part of a violent hazing stunt at his University of Texas-Austin Sigma Nu fraternity that led to the fraternity being permanently disbanded and criminal charges for several members who were involved in the incident, according to a lawsuit obtained by the Associated Press. The criminal records show that Hamm and his fraternity brothers struck pledge Mark Allen Sanders with a paddle dozens of times, punched him in the kidney, led him around by his genitals using a claw hammer and set his pants on fire, according to Star Magazine, who first reported the story. The incident started because Sanders had not memorized things he was supposed to have memorized.RELATED: Jon Hamm talks about 'Mad Men' endingSanders said in the lawsuit that he needed medical attention for his injuries and he withdrew from school after the incident.

Mad Men Director On Midseason Premiere & Finale Controversy

SPOILER ALERT:This story contains details of tonight's Mad Men Season 7 midseason premiere. If Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner had a right-hand man for the seven seasons of the acclaimed AMC series, it certainly had to be fellow EP Scott Hornbacher . Having worked with Weiner on The Sopranos , where he was a co-producer, Hornbacher has not only been behind the scenes for the whole run of the tales of the Jon Hamm portrayed Don Draper and what has become Sterling Cooper http://deadline.com/2015/04/mad-men-final-season-director-scott-hornbacher-1201404718/

'Mad Men' Season 7b premiere: Ghosts and lookalikes haunt Don Draper in 'Severance'

Nothing that's on screen in "Mad Men" is accidental. Creator Matthew Weiner is infamously involved in just about every detail of the show, from the biggest narrative arcs to the smallest props on the desks at Sterling Cooper & Partners.So it's very much by design that in an episode where Don (Jon Hamm) is literally seeing ghosts, he ends up turning to a woman who bears more than a passing resemblance to the now-departed Rachel Menken Katz (Maggie Siff).Every scene with Rachel's almost-doppelganger, Diana the waitress (Elizabeth Reaser, whom you know from the "Twilight" movies and her run on "Grey's Anatomy"), has the quality of a fever dream. He insists he knows her from somewhere, while she questions whether Don had a dream about Rachel before (as the audience sees it) or after her death.RELATED: Jon Hamm: 'There's no version of this ending that's not super painful for me'It's an unsettling way for Don to... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/J7MRlxpwZBo/mad_men_season_7b_premiere_ghosts_lookalikes_haunt_don_draper_severance-2015-04

'Mad Men's' Jon Hamm: 'There's no version of this ending that's not super painful for me'

It's being billed as "the end of an era," and for AMC the farewell of "Mad Men" certainly is.When the series premiered on July 19, 2007, AMC was a small basic cable channel that specialized in old theatrically released movies. The success of "Mad Men" paved the way for more original programming, with "Breaking Bad" and "The Killing" following in its wake. It also put AMC on the map as a serious player in scripted series.Naturally, it's also the end of an era for cast members Jon Hamm, Christina Hendricks, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery and others, many of whom made their names working on "Men." For them, it's on to new projects, a well-deserved break and looking back on a series that to date has won 15 Emmy Awards -- including four for outstanding drama series -- and garnered 105 nominations.At a recent gathering of TV critics in Pasadena, Calif., cast... http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/dyNrUgqlADc/mad_men_jon_hamm_theres_no_version_of_this_ending_thats_not_super_painful_for_me-2015-04
