EXCLUSIVE: 'Mad Men' Star John Slattery Coming to 'The Simpsons'

John Slatter, 'Mad Men'Not everyone in Hollywood really knows each other, but it's pretty darn close. Take, for example, my day on the set of NBC's new sitcom 'Free Agents.' Knowing that they're shooting at the same studios where 'Mad Men' shoots was one thing, but the 'Mad Men' ties don't stop there.

I caught up with star Hank Azaria who plays Alex on 'Free Agents' (previews Wed., Sept. 14, 10:30PM ET), a PR exec whose unlucky-in-love personal life starts to bleed into his work life. We talked a lot about the show -- more to come closer to premiere -- but he also had a few tidbits to share about some of the 'Mad Men' cast.

In a brief moment of 'Simpsons' conversation, Azaria talked about guest stars for the show's upcoming season (premieres Sun., Sept. 25, 8PM ET on Fox). "We're actually recording our 23rd season now, and it's hard to remember anything, because we don't memorize anything, and we've done so many. I just assume every major recording and movie star and television star has been through there -- and they pretty much have -- but I run into John Slattery a lot, and I know he did a voice this year."

I got visibly excited (confession: I might've squealed -- I really miss that show!), and then our conversation went a little something like this:

I love him as Roger Sterling on 'Mad Men.'
Oh yeah? You probably want to go over there and just peek ...

Doesn't everybody?
I play cards with Jon Hamm so I get to see Jon Hamm, so I don't have to go stalk him on his set. [Laughs]

I love the idea of this famous celebrity card game -- who else plays with you guys?
No offense to my other poker buddies, but I think he's the only one you'd really get excited about. I don't sit there with Brad Pitt and George Clooney ... they're not in the game.

Well you're like the Brad Pitt to Jon Hamm's Clooney, so ...
Exactly! [Laughs] That's what I tell myself: I am the Pitt to Jon Hamm's Clooney.

Some days my job is really tough.

Tell us: Are you excited for 'Free Agents' / Slattery on 'The Simpsons' / 'Mad Men''s return / all of the above?
