Mad World


The actresses of Mad Men have done such a great job playing their 60’s alter egos that it seems casting directors can’t see past them.

A profile of January “Betty Draper” Jones reveals that the actress is being offered “a lot of dramatic roles as a sadder, more neglected housewife.” Meanwhile, Elisabeth Moss has taken on yet another Peggy Olsen style good-girl in Speed The Plow: “They’re both sort of guileless. They have something that can be mistaken for naiveté, but it’s not. It’s just enthusiasm.” You can’t win. [Vanity Fair, Playbill]
