This already looks amazing. I'm sooo excited. Plus, I want to try out for Lola.

And who do we think Evangeline is?

Haha, I want to try out for Lola, too, and maybe Lorelai... or maybe I just want a reason to be dressed like and old fashioned stewardess.

Omg, a whorehouse. This season's going to rock.

God, I wonder who's going there.

Is anybody here industry-wise enough to know the difference between a "GUEST STAR" and a "CO-STAR"? Is it the size of the role?
katelynmorningstar_337 on April 23rd, 2009 08:47 pm (UTC)
Is anyone else struck by how this title doesn't really... fit with those of the other seasons? I don't know, "And Now With More Commercials" seems more appropriate for a comedy for some reason.

It could easily be a working title; they might not want to release the real title yet.

The date at least is real. Rich Sommer wrote on his Twitter feed yesterday that prep week for Mad Men starts on Monday: "Next week is my Mad Men prep week: Monday fitting, Tuesday haircut, Wednesday screen tests, Thursday party, Friday read through. Awesome!!"

Apparently, the Mad Men research department recently called the Baltimore Sun food critic to ask about the uniforms at Baltimore mainstay Haussner's.

Basket of Kisses commentator hullaballoo pointed out that London Fog's factory is located in Baltimore, so this suggests a trip down to Baltimore to meet with the owners. Alternatively, it could be a trip by Sal and Kitty to visit their hometown.
