TV on Tap: James Wolk Discusses “Mad Men” Proposal, “Broadchurch” Plans a “Torchwood” Reunion and Bill Hader Heads to HBO

Vulture breaks down the secrets of how Catfish: The TV Show is put together, making clear that the catfishes usually get cast first, how much of the show is planned in advance as well as how much Nev and Max know in advance. It doesn’t predict when Max and Nev finally get together, however,

James Wolk talked with GQ and addressed where he thought Bob‘s mind was during last week’s marriage proposal, “I think he really has a love for Joan and for her family. I think he really does care for her. And as you see throughout the show, he’s always thinking about trying to advance himself. So I believe that he feels that having a wife and having a family, and being a picture perfect American man in the 1960s, will help him in his career. And he also thinks it would be »

Review: 'Mad Men' - 'The Strategy'

18 May 2014 11:01 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Mad Men" coming up just as soon as I park my white horse outside... "I know I am flawed, but I am offering you more than anyone else ever will." -Bob Benson Five years ago, after a long night at press tour, Matt Weiner and I sat down to discuss the third season premiere of "Mad Men," "Out of Town." It was a sprawling conversation, covering not just the episode, but past decisions about the show and even, near the end, his future hopes for it. As the series has gone on, Weiner has grown more close-mouthed about what's coming next, but this was far away from the hypothetical end of the series that he felt comfortable talking a little about what he envisioned for it: I would like to see them get to the end of this (decade), and that was my original intention when I wrote the pilot. »

18 May 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Mad Men returned on Sunday night with Don still in his precarious position at the ad firm he helped build. His successor as the head of creative, Lou Avery, is as intent as ever to get Don out of the picture.

Mad Men Recap

Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) has been hard at work on the Burger Chef campaign, which Lou Avery (Allan Havey) is using as a way of cutting Don’s (Jon Hamm) legs out from under him. Now that Peggy feels confident that she has a solid pitch, Pete flies in to hear her presentation with Bonnie Whiteside (Jessy Schram) in tow. Lou is surprised to see Don walk into the meeting, but Pete (Vincent Kartheiser) explains that not only does he want Don in on the meeting, but he’s going to want him to make the official pitch to Burger Chef. Though Peggy initially balks at the idea, »

The Crazy Ones: Cancelled by CBS, No Season Two

10 May 2014 5:20 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Mork & Mindy was a smash hit back in the day but the same can't be said for Robin William's newest sitcom, The Crazy Ones. CBS has cancelled the show after one season of 22 episodes.

The Crazy Ones follows an unorthodox ad agency executive (Williams) and his partner and daughter (Sarah Michelle Gellar). The rest of the cast includes James Wolk, Hamish Linklater, and Amanda Setton.

Word is that the show was expensive to produce and the ratings just didn't justify a second season. It was the weakest-performing comedy on the network's Thursday night schedule for much of the year, averaging a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 8.32 million viewers.

The season (now series) finale aired on April 17th.

What do you think? Are you sorry to hear that The Crazy Ones has been cancelled? »

7 Questions Answered by Mad Men's Season 7 Premiere

14 April 2014 8:02 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Given all the craziness that happened at the end of Mad Men's sixth season, we had so many big questions going into season seven. I was a little underwhelmed by the lack of action in this week's season premiere, but we did get a few answers to our burning questions. Here's everything we know so far, and hopefully the mysteriously absent Betty and Sally will show up next week! Is there a time jump? Yes. Toward the end of the episode, former President Richard Nixon's inaugural speech, which took place Jan. 20, 1969, is playing on TV. Since the season six finale took place in November 1968, it's been about two months. Are Megan and Don still together? Things weren't looking good for the couple's relationship at the end of season six, and in the premiere, we find out they're still together, but living on separate coasts. The episode finds Don »

Mad Men, Ep. 7.01: “Time Zones” – the bicoastal final season starts strong

14 April 2014 4:29 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Mad Men, Season 7: Episode 1 – “Time Zones”

Written by Matthew Weiner

Directed by Scott Hornbacher

Airs Sunday nights at 10 on AMC

As the United States swears in its new president, Richard Nixon, the country finds itself in a transition period, caught between the two worlds of its past and uncertain future. “Time Zones” splits is central characters up in a similar way that exposes just how noticeable the precipices are that they stand on. Don Draper isn’t just living an existence that has him dividing time between his New York life and the Californian one he shares with his wife, Megan. He’s also in a rough limbo, biding his time until Sterling Cooper & Partners calls him back to the office. Roger Sterling is even more lost at sea. Our re-introduction to the man–completely naked in a room full of post-coital men and women–poses plenty of questions »

Robin Williams has 90 minutes to live in 'The Angriest Man in Brooklyn'

4 April 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What would you do if you had 90 minutes to live? That is the question posed to Robin Williams’ character in the upcoming movie “The Angriest Man in Brooklyn.”  Williams plays that angriest man and upon learning that he has such a short time left, he does what most of us would do – he attempts to square himself with those he loves.  The catch is that while he is sick, he isn’t going to die in 90 minutes.  Yeah, that’s just what his doctor (played by Mila Kunis) tells him when he presses her for a definitive length of time. Watching the trailer for the film, the results, as awful as the falsehood may be, appear like they could be relatively funny.  Particularly enjoyable is Williams’ voiceover at the opening. The cast also includes Melissa Leo, Hamish Linklater, Richard Kind, and Peter Dinklage.  It is worth noting that Linklater is »

Conference Call Interview With Mad Men Creator Matthew Weiner

3 April 2014 7:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mad Men is one of the most celebrated programs in television history and helped to refine AMC as a network dedicated to quality scripted storytelling. Unlike other much-anticipated TV returns this year, such as HBO’s Game of Thrones, fans of the series have little to chew on. Without much in the way of clips, ads or interviews with the cast, most of what will transpire at the office of Sterling Cooper & Partners is a mystery to viewers.

That insistence to avoid spoilers is closely tied to the tight-lipped sensibility of the show’s creator, Matthew Weiner. Weiner first broke through as a writer on Becker and received two Emmy nominations for his work on the last three seasons of The Sopranos. His work on the HBO show, which became a television milestone before the age of the “spoiler alert,” made him interested in staying mum on what happens on Mad Men, »

'Mad Men' at Paleyfest: Jon Hamm's YouTube recommendation, a staring contest and more

23 March 2014 | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

There's a parallel universe somewhere in which "Mad Men" is a straight-up comedy, and it's not very far from our own.

The Emmy-winning series has featured plenty of comedic moments over the years, and Friday (March 21) at the 2014 Paley Festival, the cast's way with a funny line was on full display. Even before the first question, the show's cast was drawing laughs, as when Jon Hamm made an exaggerated come-hither face at the sound guy attaching his mic. A very appreciative audience couldn't get enough of it.

The physical humor reached its peak with a question from a fan about how the actors convey meaning in a scene where they don't have any dialogue. Cue Hamm making a serious face at moderator Mike Schneider from TV Guide, which led to a staring contest that lasted at least a full minute, to the amazement of the rest of the cast and »

5 March 2014 6:20 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Norbert Leo Butz has signed on to co-star in an upcoming Netflix drama alongside Kyle Chandler, Linda Cardellini, Ben Mendelsohn, and Sissy Spacek, Deadline reports. The show, from Damages' Todd A. Kessler, Daniel Zelman, and Glenn Kessler, focuses on a family of adult siblings (with Spacek as their mother) whose black-sheep brother (Mendelsohn) return and dredges up old secrets. Butz will play the youngest brother, "the extroverted and charming owner of a boat repair yard who considers himself the 'unofficial mayor' of this small coastal town." Butz is great — two Tonys don't lie — but the dream of Kyle Chandler and James Wolk playing brothers endures. »

Christian Slater and Steve Zahn Psychological Manipulate People For Good and For Profit In 'Mind Games'

21 February 2014 8:08 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Writer/producer Kyle Killen has had some bad luck with some good series. "Lone Star," his 2010 drama starring James Wolk as a Texas con-man leading two lives with two different women he was in love with ran for just two critically acclaimed but low-rated episodes on Fox before getting canceled. "Awake," his 2012 NBC fantasy/crime series featuring Jason Isaacs as a cop switching between different realities in which either his wife or his son died in a car accident, fared a little better, lasting a full 13-episode season before getting cut. ("The Beaver," which he wrote and Jodie Foster directed, faced a different sort of challenge by way of its controversy-laden star Mel Gibson.) So while it's a little disappointing, it's hard to blame Killen for choosing to play things safer in his new series, "Mind Games," which premieres on ABC on Tuesday, February 25th, seeing as he's had two »

James Wolk in suits: 'Mad Men,' 'The Crazy Ones' star photos in GQ

29 January 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

James Wolk is a very handsome man. Whether he's an odd fellow on "Mad Men" or a playboy on "The Crazy Ones," Wolk pretty much always looks good. But his TV look pales in comparison to the actor wearing a collection of multi-colored suits in the February edition of GQ.

These photos truly are eye-candy goodness.

Taken in locations around Miami, the man behind characters like Bob Benson and Zach Cropper looks rather dapper in all of the suit options.

Seriously, it takes someone as nice-looking as Wolk to pull off a magenta suit.
