‘Mad Men’ Cast on Spoilers, Sartorial Impact at Season 7 Premiere

3 April 2014 8:52 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC’s “Mad Men” has reinvented television and made household names out of stars like Jon Hamm. So it’s no wonder the cast and crew were reluctant to say goodbye when they premiered the first half of the last season on April 2 at Arclight Hollywood.

Mason Vale Cotton, who plays Hamm’s character’s son Bobby, tag-teamed the red carpet with Robert Morse, frequently stopping interviews to inform journalists that the theater legend is his favorite actor on the show. (Morse only had to coach him a few of those times).

Mason Cotton's (Bobby Draper) secret to career longevity? Stay cute & be nice. #MadMen—

The show has had a considerable impact on fans’ personal wardrobes and home decor — something that even the cast hasn’t been able to escape off screen.

January Jones’ character of Betty Draper Francis became one of the archetypes for this fashion innovation, »

'Mad Men' season 7 photo: Groovy at 30,000 feet -- Exclusive

13 March 2014 9:49 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Another day, another peek at season 7 of Mad Men. Like the first images we saw of Don Draper stepping off a plane, or the subsequent shots thoroughly analyzed by EW’s Darren Franich, this photo keeps with the aviation theme. It also indicates that as the ’60s are closing out, the gang is getting into the groovy, and they appear to be taking their show on the road. (To Los Angeles, home of their satellite office?)

Enough speculating. Behold Stan (Jay R. Ferguson) in his fringe jacket! Michael (Ben Feldman) in a bolo tie, which accessorizes nicely with his ‘stache! »

First Promo Images from Mad Men Season 7 Featuring Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, and John Slattery

12 March 2014 10:05 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

AMC’s marketing campaign for the seventh and final season of the fantastic drama series Mad Men kicked off last week with a teaser trailer and poster, and now some gallery images from the new season have been released.  The network is splitting season seven into two halves of seven episodes each, with the first set to debut next month.  Though these images are gallery shoots instead of stills from the new season, they do give us a slight idea of where we’ll find the characters when season seven picks up; creator Matthew Weiner is big on secrecy, so any and all information on what we can expect is basically non-existent. Hit the jump to check out the images.  The show stars Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, John Slattery, Jessica Pare, January Jones, Vincent Kartheiser, Christina Hendricks, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, Robert Morse, Kiernan Shipka, and Kevin RahmMad Men »
