Inside Mad Men
According to an article in The Hollywood Reporter recently, Mad Men will return for Season 5 in 2012 with Jon Hamm as the director of the very first episode. Fellow Mad Men actor John Slattery directed two episodes in Season 4 but Hamm would be the first cast member to be given the honor of directing a season premiere. Read below to see how fans are reacting to reports of Hamm's directorial debut.
• "Jon Hamm could stand on a dumpster in the middle of the desert and read the phone book, and I'd go to watch him. He's so darn sexy and gorgeous. Can't take it. Be still my heart!"-- Debra Collins Safford
• "He can do it all!!!! Can't wait until Season 5!!!!!!"-- Leslie McCollum Mobley
• "My God, amazing news, looking forward to his directorial debut."--Anita David

Prepare for a glimpse of the treasures of the Mad Men universe -- the costume shop. Designer Janie Bryant walks through racks and racks of colorful clothing and reminds us that the '60s were when "people really had a good time dressing." For a close up of the chiffon and the glen plaid you've seen on the screen, and the mood boards that Bryant uses for inspiration, check out the video.
Even ad guys need a marketing push now and then so here's to the Season 3 promotional imagery -- that's key art, in industry slang -- which starts appearing today on bus shelters, billboards and magazines near you.

Just in time for the weekend, actors Jon Hamm and John Slattery answer some questions you submitted via the blog.
Want to know how they really feel about working together? Or how much they get to improvise -- including that punch Roger delivered to Don's arm in "Six Month Leave"? How about what they have in common with their characters? Of course you want to know. After all, you asked!
Did you know that Betty reads Vogue? Or that Peggy's hemlines are on the rise? Or that Joan will never change her style? Costume designer Janie Bryant gives an inside look at how she expresses the story through the clothing.
Bright is the keyword for Season 2 fashions. Costume designer Janie Bryant works closely with Debbie Zoller (Makeup Department Head) and Gloria Ponce (Hair Department Head) to coordinate the perfect look for the cast members -- a look that's as essential to the series as the script.
Betty finds happiness? Sal with children? After a fling? Bryan Batt, January Jones and Elisabeth Moss divulge their predictions for Season 3 (and beyond).
Now that Season 2 is over, we know a bit more about Don Draper than we did at the beginning. But who is the man who brings Draper to life? Is he anything like the character? Watch the video to find out what the rest of the cast thinks.
AMC's cameras caught up with the cast of Mad Men at their Season 2 wrap party. Jon Hamm talks about getting mean, John Slattery talks about losing his wife, and Robert Morse talks about argyle socks.
