Here’s a video from AMCtv.com covering the insanely huge Times Square premiere of Season Four of Mad Men. January Jones and Elisabeth Moss talk about the show and the thousands of people who showed up in period costume.

It’s almost here! The countdown will end in approximately 6 hours for the East Coast and 9 for us on the West Coast (don’t know about you folks in Canada and overseas).
I’ve seen the episode and I’m dying to discuss it…but I’ll be a good little blogger and wait to post my review.
The title of this post will be the title of my review…but it won’t have any significance until the last thirty seconds of the episode so NO SPOILERS thus far.
To hold you over, here’s some of my interviews from the Mad Men Season 4 Premiere red carpet in Hollywood. I still need to edit and upload Vincent Kartheiser, Rich Sommer and Joel Murray so stay tuned…
Aaron Staton thinks Ken Cosgrove would be in jail if he were alive today…
Christina Hendricks doesn’t remember her first TV show she did with January Jones…
Robert Morse wants to bag chicks like Don Draper…
Kiernan Shipka. is 10 1/2 going on 30…
Jared Harris blesses me…
I hope the wait was worth it for you Mad Maniacs and I’ll see you here when the episode is over!
Robert Morse was first down the red carpet at the Mad Men Season 4 premiere and it’s a good thing he wasn’t setting the fashion bar because he was rocking a green and brown flannel shirt that I highly doubt was a) approved by the Mad Men wardrobe department or b) recently cleaned.
Morse is definitely of the “I’m too old for this shit” variety of Hollywood professional. Hey, he’s earned it. (In his defense, he was sick with bronchitis so I’m grateful that he even made it to the event.) Continue reading
I got a quick few questions in to Rich Sommer (Mad Men’s Harry Crane) as he finished up his red carpet walk at the Mad Men Season 4 premiere in Hollywood, California.
I had just been following his blog the week before (http://RichSommer.com Warning: It’s on Tumblr.) so I wanted to ask him about his online activity…
He can’t be the only Mad Men cast member with a blog, right? I’m sure they all have Twitter accounts; I mean, God forbid an actor go ten minutes without tweeting about the temperature of their machiatto. Am I right or am I right? [sound of trombone dying of leprosy]
Oh, yeah, um, Rich has one, too, but his is the best! http://twitter.com/richsommer
Rich, if you’re reading this, I also wanted to ask you about the origin of Harry’s fear of being fired. You’ve said “Oh, God” in reference to the possibility of layoffs more than once and I find it hilarious. Please comment below or add it to the Q&A on your blog if you can and keep up the good work. Thanks!
I interviewed delightful cherub and child actor Kiernan Shipka on the red carpet at the Mad Men Season Four premiere event in Hollywood, California on July 20, 2010.
Let’s be clear. Kiernan is not only a fantastic actor but this video proves she is more mature and well-spoken than most adults I know. I couldn’t help but recall that Dakota Fanning sketch that Amy Poehler used to do on SNL (“I’m not familiar.”).
And I can’t look at her picture and not feel sad that she has to take so much abuse from her awful mother Betty Draper. But then after a couple seconds I remember that Mad Men is, in fact, not real and I feel much, much better.
Let’s move on. Take it away, Kiernan…
Don’t you feel sorry for her that she has to put up with jerks like me who try to get story details out of a defenseless child? She totally held her ground and rocked that rebuttal speech that the Network Gestapo (as they’re known here in the ‘Wood) coached her on. I wonder if they threatened to take away her Barbies if she told.
Just kidding. They threatened to take away her SAG award.
I only had ONE QUESTION to ask the vivacious Christina Hendricks as she was two steps away from entering the screening room for the Mad Men Season 4 Premiere.
I was particularly aware that I only had one question because the publicist barked “Only one question, only ONE!” in my ear four times after asking me three times “Who are you with, again?”
What doesn’t she understand about the name TELEMATIC DAN?! That moniker is not on the level of ACCESS HOLLYWOOD yet? I guess I’ll never truly understand this town.
Anyway, my point is this: I had four questions prepared for Christina and when pressed to make a last-second choice of one, I thought it would be funny to ask her about her very first credit on imdb, which was (apparently) a cheesy something called Sorority that also featured January Jones in the cast.
Surely Christina would get a huge kick out of recalling Sorority and launch into a hilarious story of her first time ever on a set, right? Well…not quite, as you’ll see.
Bang-up job thinking it was a movie, not a TV show, and trying to correct her, Dan.
Next time I’ll ask her how it was to star in Full House as Alyssa Milano.
