MAD MEN Season 4 - A Fresh Star For... - Previews

Watch some great “A Fresh Start For…” previews for season 4 of MAD MEN which premieres on July 25th at 10pm on AMC. Be careful of spoilers if you’re not up to date with the show. Mad Men Synopsis: In season three, “Mad Men’s” unflinching look at the human condition continued as characters faced the realities of dramatic change in the country – from the birth of civil rights to the assassination of a president – and in their personal lives. Whether it was corporate politics, homophobia in the workplace or the frustration of betrayal, they dealt with an unsettling loss of the familiar. Audiences were stunned by the self-destruction of protagonist Don Draper, including a confrontation with wife Betty that forced him to reveal the truth about his past and identity, and the resale of Sterling Cooper by British parent company Putnam, Powell and Lowe (PPL), which left its partners on the brink of a new beginning.

'Mad Men' Star Crista Flanagan to Pose Naked for Playboy

"Mad Men" star Crista Flanagan has become the latest TV star to bare all for Playboy magazine. The actress, who plays secretary Lois Sadler on the hit show, has peeled off for a spread in the August issue of the men's magazine. She says, "Part of the reason (I decided to pose) was because it scared me, and I thought it was exciting that something still scared me. I was really nervous about it, and then I thought the only thing that would be embarrassing would be if I hated my body." Professionally, Crista Flanagan made his movie acting debut by playing HermioneGranger in "Epic Movie". She later appeared in other big screen projects such as "Meet the Spartans", "Disaster Movie" and will be seen in upcoming movie "Vampires Suck" in which she will play as Esme Cullen. Source Here

Kiernan Shipka Talks 'Mad Men' Drama, Playing Sally Draper & On-Set Goofballs (VIDEO)

'Mad Men''s Sally Draper is one of the greatest kids on TV -- period -- and that's thanks in large part to the talented 10-year-old who plays her, Kiernan Shipka. Now, I get the opportunity to interview some of the biggest stars, but I was positively giddy about having Kiernan in studio for this interview. She showed up ready to answer all (OK, most) of my questions, including what we should expect from Sally and the Drapers in season 4 (premieres Sun., July 25, 10PM ET on AMC) and who's the biggest goofball on the swanky 'Mad Men' set. Kiernan also dished about which 'Mad Men' lady she'd like to have more scenes with. And just as I was listening to her sharp, intelligent answers, forgetting how young she actually is, she admitted that she doesn't exactly get to watch the whole show when it airs -- her mom, Erin, gives it a first pass to make sure it's age-appropriate. Now if only Betty Draper would be so doting ... Source & Video

Mad Men Cast and Creator Tease Season 4

The framed letter from President Obama hangs in the hallway outside Matt Weiner's office. "He wrote to say he enjoyed Season 3," the Mad Men creator says, giggling in disbelief. "He was congratulating me on my and the show's success, and I wanted to say, 'But wait, you're the successful person.'" The president was merely speaking for the quality-TV nation. In three seasons, Mad Men has gone from being a cool retro diversion to one of the most stylish, seductive shows in TV history. Last season ended in a mushroom cloud of hope and despair. Don Draper (Jon Hamm) and his most trusted companions in advertising walked away from the Sterling Cooper agency to launch a risky start-up. But Don's personal life imploded as his wife, Betty (January Jones), slapped down divorce papers and flew off to Reno with political aide Henry Francis (Christopher Stanley). Last we saw, Don was moving to Greenwich Village to start over. To Read More Click Here .

Jon Hamm Shares Rude Emmy Wake-Up Call

What a reaction Mad Men's Jon Hamm got to his nomination for best actor in a drama: "I was in bed with [girlfriend] Jennifer [Westfeldt] and my mutt Cora, who farted in my face. Not cool. She's sort of over it all." After that special acknowledgement, Hamm says, "there was a flurry of texts between John Slattery, Lizzy Moss and Christina Hendricks and I. And I sent a text to Miss [January] Jones, but have not heard a response yet. I am very certain she is still asleep." Hamm's favorite episode of last season was "The Gypsy and The Hobo," in which his character's secret double life exposed to wife Betty. "It was beautifully written and shot." He's equally thrilled for pal Kyle Chandler's first nomination for Friday Night Lights. "I can't believe it finally happened. I was so happy to see him and Connie [Britton] recognized because they've been doing it so long and so great. I wish them the moon! Kyle and I had small parts in The Day the Earth Stood Still so we had a lot of time to get to know each other. But I may have lost his phone number, so if he reads this - please call me!"

John Slattery Mad About Emmy Nod

Nominated again for best supporting actor for Mad Men, John Slattery was already on a high, celebrating his first time directing an episode (the fourth) of Mad Men's new season, which returns July 25. "It was challenging - a bit of an out of body experience to direct myself," he tells TV Guide Magazine. "I remember Lizzy Moss [Peggy] laughing in my face and apologizing every time I tried giving her direction. She said, 'I'm sorry, I can't take you seriously.' We have a table read today for episode nine, so I'll be seeing everybody again." Though he can't say anything about the new season, Slattery calls the firm's new office environment "fantastic," with a few holdovers from his character Roger's old office. "Everybody has brought in a little something familiar." Wouldn't an Emmy look nice in Roger's digs? Source Here
