Jon Hamm'Mad Men' fans struggling through the dry spell between Seasons 4 and 5 can rest easy in the knowledge that Don Draper will be on the show until the end.

And, for those fans looking to maintain the 'Mad Men' mood through the long wait, Banana Republic has announced that in August it will launch a range of clothing and accessories inspired by the '60s-set drama.

Deadline.com reports that in the wake of 'Mad Men' creator Matthew Weiner's new three-year deal, star Jon Hamm has renegotiated his contract with Lionsgate-AMC.

Insinuating that Mr. Kors only knows the fashion preferences of old people, isn't a good way to kiss up to the judges. It appears to be that Andrae finally got off the crazy train and handed his ticket to Santino.
