The new season of Mad Men is almost upon us, so what's going to get people talking about it?
Perhaps a few items in gossip columns, like this one, via NYDN Confidential:
An AMC insider tells Confidenti@l that during filming of the sixth season of the hit show — when the ’60s-style clothing was a tight fit — Hamm was politely instructed by a staffer at the network to please wear underwear while shooting his scenes.
“This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination,” a source tells us. “Jon’s impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear.”
AMC's marketing team had to Photoshop certain areas, according to their source:
“His privates are the inside joke. (Hamm) knows what he’s got. Imagine how distracting that would be on the side of a bus or building."
Well, we really don't have to imagine. It's well documented.
Still, the show doesn't want people talking about it:
A rep for Hamm said: “It is ridiculous and not really funny at all. I’d appreciate you taking the high road and not resorting to something childish like this that’s been blogged about 1,000 times.”
