by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 8th 2011 11:55AM
Christina Hendricks on 'The View' Christina Hendricks cleared up a few questions about the future of 'Mad Men' Wednesday on 'The View' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC). The cast will stay intact for season five, she said, which will come as a relief to the show's legions of fans who may be worried about contract disputes and delays in shooting. They will still get their show, but it will starting later than usual.

"The writers are back right now, no one is leaving the show," said Hendricks. "The actors go back in a month. I don't know the exact time that we'll get back on air. It'll be a little bit later than we normally are, but not too much." Previous reports have pegged the show's return around January of 2012, and also speculated that minor characters might have to be cut due to financial constraints.

Emmy RoundtableJulianna Margulies, Connie Britton, Christina Hendricks, Regina King, Melissa Leo, Katey Sagal and Kelly MacDonald walk into a room ... no, this isn't the setup of a lame joke, it's what happened at the Hollywood Reporter's Emmy Roundtable.

These seven talented ladies -- all of them Emmy contenders -- gathered to discuss all things TV.

In the clip below, the women talk about the difference between film and TV work, and why working in TV is easier when you have a family.

"I like them both," Margulies said. "I don't not want to have my kid and I don't not want to have my job, so you make it work. And you sleep when you're dead."

Christina Hendricks in 'Body of Proof'While 'Mad Men' is on a lengthy hiatus, Christina Hendricks popped up on her husband Geoffrey Arend's show 'Body of Proof' (Tue., 10PM ET on ABC). She had two roles, playing identical twin sisters.

The forensic pathologist (Arend) shared with Karen what he discovered to be the cause of her twin's death: deep vein thrombosis. A blood clot stopped blood flowing to her heart.

"Our parents are dead. We're all each other had," said Karen, tearing up. "We were inseparable."

Dr. Gross offered her his handkerchief. "Would you like to go somewhere else to talk?"

Helping Others Gets Contestant Eliminated on 'Top Chef Masters' (VIDEO)

Sue, Suvir, Alex on 'Top Chef Masters'On 'Top Chef Masters' (Wed., 10PM ET on BRAVO), the cheftestants learned that sometimes, timing is everything.

The challenge was to take some classic dishes from the 1960s, give them a modern twist and serve them as appetizers to 'Mad Men's' Christina Hendricks and husband Geoffrey Arend (who both admitted to hating '60s food).

Everyone crowded into the kitchen. There were some successful efforts, but some big flops too. In the bottom three, Alex Stratta was told, "Your bread puddings were quite disappointing and very undelicious." And Suvir Saran's unintentional deep-fried veal was "too tough for words."

But in the end, it was the fact that Sue Zemanick helped other contestants that sent her packing her knives. She didn't have enough time to finish her own dish. "I'm disappointed and sad, but I didn't get my food on the plate in time so I think it was a fair decision," she said.

The results are in. It has been proven that every person alive finds 'Mad Men's' Christina Hendricks sexy. In her cover story for November's Harper's Bazaar, she tells the interviewer even women and gay men cannot resist her.

"Women hit on me. My husband thinks it's so odd that so many women hit on me," Hendricks says.

As for gay men, she says, "They say to me, 'Well, I'm not straight, but if I was ...' "

The Emmy nominee finds it "so flattering." She deserves it after fighting in Hollywood for years to bring buxom female figures back in fashion.

Christina Hendricks Emmys 2010: Dress a Hot Mess?

Christina HendricksChristina Hendricks made a splash on the Emmys 2010 red carpet, but not for good reasons.

The red-headed beauty and new face of London Fog walked the red carpet with her husband actor Geoffrey Arend.

The 'Mad Men' star, who was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama, ended up on our list of worst dressed celebrities. One complaint: those sleeves!

Was Christina Hendricks Photoshopped in London Fog Ads?

by Ryan McKee, posted Aug 26th 2010 8:00PM
We know the name London Fog is nonsense because Lane explained there is no fog in London during last season's 'Mad Men.' Who says TV turns your brain to mush?

It appears now the classic overcoat company is returning the shout-out favor. They've hired the woman behind everyone's favorite female character, Joan Holloway. Christina Hendricks is the face (and figure) of London Fog's fall ad campaign. This is quite a departure from the label's previous celebrity faces, who include Gisele and Eva Longoria with Tony Parker. People say curves are back and London Fog is taking it seriously. Maybe someone should tell Angelina Jolie?

Or so it seemed the company was taking the curves seriously. Now that the ads are starting to run, grrl-power blog Jezebel has paired the behind-the-scenes photos that ran in OK! magazine with the finished product. It sure seems like London Fog did some slimming of Hendricks' curves in Photoshop. See for for yourself, after the jump ...

See Christina Hendricks Get 'Undressed' on the Way to Fame

by Chris Jordan, posted Aug 10th 2010 1:00PM
It's been approximately 36 hours since the last episode of 'Mad Men,' which means you're probably experiencing some sort of Christina Hendricks withdrawal. Fortunately this YouTube clip (after the jump) of Hendricks making a 1999 appearance on MTV's 'Undressed' came across our computer screens last night, and watching it is guaranteed to soften the crash considerably.

The night-time soap 'Undressed' ran from 1999 to 2003 on MTV. It was built around a series of vignettes about twenty-somethings and teenagers -- straight and gay, of all races, wearing all sorts of sleep outfits -- talking about the merits of various sexual liaisons. While the acting was often a bit wooden and the dialogue stilted, it nonetheless provided plenty of late-night entertainment for those watching.

In this clip from season 1, Hendricks plays a 17-year old who might not be emotionally ready for the sex she's having with the rapper she met at the bus station. Her portrayal of an awkward, not quite fully developed Rhiannon is far removed from the assured Joan Holloway of 'Mad Men.'

Emmy Picks: Best Supporting Actress in a Drama

by Joel Keller, posted Jul 20th 2010 5:00PM

For the next few days, I'll be listing the Emmy nominees in the major categories and giving you picks and possible dark horses. Feel free to agree, disagree, and make your own picks in the comments.

Let's start with an interesting mix of the safe and the new: the Best Supporting Actress in a Drama category.

Nominees:
Christine Baranski, 'The Good Wife'
Rose Byrne, 'Damages'
Sharon Gless, 'Burn Notice'
Christina Hendricks, 'Mad Men'
Elisabeth Moss, 'Mad Men'
Archie Panjabi, 'The Good Wife'

Who will win:
The Academy just loves, loves, loves Christine Baranski. Sure, she only won once, for 'Cybil' in 1995, but she's been nominated six times since then, including twice this year (she got a guest actress nod for playing Leonard's mom on 'The Big Bang Theory'). And now that she's nominated in the drama category for the first time, they'll jump at the chance to give her the statuette. Even though she did a good job as ice queen law firm honcho Diane Lockhart in 'The Good Wife,' the Academy will likely just give her the award because she's an old friend.

'Mad Men' May End in 2012

by Gary Susman, posted Apr 19th 2010 12:45PM
'Mad Men' and 'Lost' have a lot in common. Both are critically acclaimed shows with small but fiercely devoted followings. Both feature square-jawed men and feisty dames, many of them with unresolved daddy issues, trying to understand life on a mysterious island characterized by brutal power struggles. Both shows center on thick plumes of smoke.

Now there's one more similarity: Both shows' creators decided about three seasons into their runs to end their series after six seasons. According to The Weekly Blend blog, 'Mad Men''s Matthew Weiner announced last week at the National Association of Broadcasters' convention in Las Vegas that he could not envision writing the show beyond a sixth season.

'Mad Men': Season Three - DVD Review

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 6th 2010 4:04PM
Mad Men season 3What do you look for in a DVD set? Are you the type of person who expects to see a lot of extras (commentaries, behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, bloopers, deleted scenes, documentaries, etc) because DVDs allow us to have all of those things and it would be a ripoff for the consumer if we didn't get them? Or are you the type of person who is just happy to have the actual episodes to watch over and over again whenever you want and you don't really care about the extras?

You're in the middle? What a politician.

I lean towards the former for newer shows and towards the latter for older shows. Though I would love to have commentaries and features for older shows, I realize that's not always possible. I ask this because the DVD set for the third season of AMC's 'Mad Men' has cast and crew commentaries for every single episode. Let's take a look at that feature and everything else in the set.

'Mad Men' Dashing for More Emmys

by Kim Potts, posted Apr 1st 2010 9:15AM
The 'Mad Men' may still be the power players in their '60s TV land universe, but it's the Mad (Wo)Men who are plotting to take home more Emmys this fall.

Last year, Jon Hamm, a.k.a. Don Draper, was the show's Outstanding Lead Actor nominee, with John Slattery winning an Outstanding Supporting Actor nomination for his role as Roger Sterling. But among the show's scene-stealing female cast, only Elisabeth Moss earned an Emmy nod, an Outstanding Lead Actress nomination for her role as Peggy Olsen.

This year, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Moss will submit her name in the supporting actress category, paving the way for a potential lead actress nomination for January Jones and her work as desperate housewife (and soon-to-be-ex) Mrs. Don Draper.
