Here’s how my mother, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, says “first of all”: first ataw.
So, first ataw, please enjoy Jon Hamm in London yesterday promoting Mad Men Season 5, premiering on March 25. We are ALMOST there!
Yesterday Jon participated in a Q&A about his character, Don Draper, and what we can expect from new episodes. But before that he talked about the kind of work he was getting before breaking through.
"(I was a set dresser for porn films.) First of all, there was no penetration. It was soft-core porn. But essentially I had to move furniture around sweaty naked people. It wasn't a great job."
Then he was asked about why Don and Joan never f-cked. OH MY GOD. His response:
"Who says he hasn't? The Don-Joan dynamic is something we do explore as the show goes on. They have worked together for a long time, they know one another very well and... I'll leave it at that."
I just, like, giggled. The same way I would giggle if Don Draper flirted with me in an elevator. The prospect of Don and Joan, and their collective damage, getting into bed together... sh-t, I can’t wait. I really can’t wait.
