"J’ai grandi en me sentant moche, bizarre et horrible!", se souvient l’actrice plantureuse de la série Mad Men. Christina Hendricks, élevée en 2010 au rang de "femme la plus sexy du monde", n’a pas toujours été à l’aise avec son corps.
In 2007, almost fifteen long, hardworking years after his arrival in Los Angeles by way of the Corolla, he won the role of Don Draper on the surprise television hit Mad Men. Contrary to popular belief, the audition was not the one in which Hamm repeatedly field-dressed a self-inflicted chest wound as show creator Matthew Weiner callously noshed on the rugelach Hamm himself had crafted for the occasion from a Pillsbury piecrust slow-baked in an earthen oven. In truth, Jon Hamm returned to the audition seven times over several weeks. But there was no pastry.
This week, during an appearance at a BAFTA event in London, Jon Hamm suggested that things haven’t always been platonic between the two Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce colleagues. Asked why Don has never made a pass at Joan, Hamm replied, “Who says he hasn’t?” Then he hinted that Mad Men‘s fifth season might explore the relationship between the two. “They have worked together for a long time,” he said. “They know one another very well, and I’ll leave it at that.”
Hamm said the next series will be set “sometime in the future but won’t be the very next day”.
Although he could not reveal much about the plot, he said it would “continue the story”.
He added: “We have established this world our characters live in. It’s a very colourful and exciting world and we are going to keep everyone in there and keep them bumping into each other and see what happens.”
“I think this season is the best yet. I really do,” Slattery said. “We were all commenting that it felt like the first season. We’ve somehow circled back after all the details and all the plot development that’s happened with everybody … it’s kind of circled back to the sort of tunnel vision on each character and various elements of each character that they’ve dialed in on. It’s somehow simpler.”
