Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss Discuss Mad Men Season 5

Some of the best moments of the series are duets between you two, as in “The Suitcase.” What is it about Don and Peggy?
JH: It’s not a mistake that the show starts on Peggy’s first day at work. In many ways, the story of Mad Men is the story of Peggy Olson: a young, ambitious, talented girl finding  her way in this crazy world. I think Don and Peggy have a special  relationship. They’re unsatisfied with who they are and are willing to  do what it takes to become something else.
EM: People are constantly  asking if they’re gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because  their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five  years without selling out and having something else happen—that to me is  really interesting and rarely done well.
JH: People want to put us  in a “Sam and Diane” box, but it’s about their mutual appreciation for  the work. That’s where the material strikes its resonant chord, when  it’s ostensibly about one thing and then it becomes about so much more.  That’s the fun thing about Don and Peggy, and that’s the deeper thing  about Mad Men.

"The problem with sweeping things under the rug is that eventually you run out of rug. It’s not an unlimited resource… Holding her hand at the end of the episode is an incredibly nice callback to the pilot of the show, when Peggy awkwardly tries to make a pass at me by putting her hand on my hand and gets completely rebuffed. Then we see this connection again, 40-whatever episodes later. It’s not a sexual thing; it’s completely a supportive friendly, human gesture."

"L.A. represents opportunity. And, as has been proven over and over in the current media landscape, it doesn’t take much for them to put you on TV. If that’s all you want, you can be on ‘The Bachelor’ or ‘The Real Housewives’ or whatever show just wants oversized personalities, ridiculous behavior, and zero dignity. If you just want to be famous… that’s not that much different than porn. ‘I’m a movie star!’ Well, no, you’re not. You’re a porn star, and that’s completely different. And you know, hey, mazel tov - porn probably built half the houses out here, but you’re selling your dignity in a way that I feel I’m not. And once you sell it, it’s gone. You ain’t getting it back."

Did you know…

Jon Hamm taught high school drama and Ellie Kemper (The Office receptionist Erin) was one of his students.

Clearly I should spend more time waiting for Mom at her beauty parlor.
