Interviews
Jon Hamm (Don Draper)
What do you think of the show’s underlying message about right and wrong?
Listen: There ain’t none of us on the planet that are perfect. And I think that people recognize human frailties and foibles and f***-ups and identify with it, honestly. Superman is a cartoon character. He’s not a real person. And no one is without sin, without mistakes.

Elisabeth Moss (Peggy Olson)
Any interest in directing an episode yourself?
I’d have to cross that bridge if I ever come to it… It’s a lot of pressure and we’ve been really lucky that the two actors we’ve had direct have done an incredible job. So it’s a lot to live up to.

And now there’s this changing of the guard where Peggy is sort of a young Don Draper…
Yeah, remember that wonderful flashback sequence where Don is going after the job with Roger and he’s so young and eager and ballsy? He’s Peggy!

Vincent Kartheiser (Pete Campbell)
Do the suits help you get into character?
It helps a lot, and it’s definitely a reminder of what you’ve done in the past and what you’ve been creating for seasons. But the women have much better wardrobes — even though we have amazing wardrobes. They get tied into corsets and wear pointy bras and all that stuff.

Are there other characters whose lines or scenes you’ve ever wished you could do?
Every character! They are all such ripe and juicy characters. I think Roger Sterling has some of the greatest one-liners ever written.

Kiernan Shipka (Sally Draper)
In the earlier seasons, your parents wouldn’t let you watch the show. What about now?
I definitely wasn’t allowed to watch when I was 6, 7, 8, or 9 even. But now I go to the table reads and I’m not in the dark about the show… Now I’m planning, when all the seasons are over, to have a Mad Men viewing marathon.

Do you think kids are growing up faster today?
Well it’s different today just because of electronics and Skyping and texting. I think that’s put a big influence on everything. It’s definitely changed.

Jon Hamm: The Last Alpha Male-from Details (from 2010)
Hamm recently became the voice of Mercedes, lending his sonorous, all-comforting, all-promising pitchman’s authority to its TV spots.
“It’s funny, right? Kind of this weird synergy,” Hamm says, alluding to the fact that the role he’s most identified with—Don Draper, the powerful and powerfully conflicted master of advertising on AMC’s Mad Men—has now led to an actual gig selling cars.
“It’s strange, but it’s good for me. I vote yes.”

“If this show had been on any of the major networks,” Hamm says, “I never would have been cast, ever, period, done, never, no way. They would want someone like Rob Lowe who’s got a proven track record. I would’ve gotten all the way to the end . . . and then I wouldn’t get cast.”
