'Sweetwater' Trailer: January Jones is MAD (Get It?)

Move over, Django. Betty Draper has some scores to settle and she's doing it in the Old West with a trusty six-shooter.

January Jones takes her woman scorned persona from "Mad Men" to a new level  as a badass widow on a warpath. Showings last year at The Sundance Film Festival resulted in a "rotten" 20 percent score for "Sweetwater," but to be fair, there are only five reviews posted on Rotten Tomatoes as of right now. "Sweetwater" looks like a mix of "True Grit," HBO's flawless series "Deadwood" with a bit Quentin Tarantino's Spaghetti Western revisionism, plus a dash of Betty Draper shooting those pigeons (as EW gleefully pointed out).

Elmo Takes Pleasure In Jon Hamm's Pain On Sesame Street

Don Draper has officially made his way from Madison Avenue to Sesame Street.

Citing the undeniable fact that the "Mad Men" star’s rugged good looks seem as if they’re already carved from marble, Sesame Street decided to team up Jon Hamm with a beret-topped Elmo in order to educate America’s children about the wide world of sculpture.

Unfortunately, Elmo clearly doesn't feel the need to teach those same children about teamwork. Get More »

Q&A: Zach Gilford on 'Nature,' Family and 'Friday Night Lights'

More likely than not, you know Zach Gilford best as Matt Saracen from "Friday Night Lights."

But, when he's not wearing a football uniform – or hospital scrubs, as the case has been on his subsequent television shows, "Off the Map" and this season's "Mob Doctor" – you might just find him in the woods. The 30-year-old actor considers himself an outdoorsman, spending his free time hiking, camping and the like, which worked out perfectly for his latest foray onto the big screen, "In Our Nature."

The movie follows Gilford's Seth and his girlfriend Andie (Jena Malone) as they head to Seth's "cabin" in upstate New York. Little do they know that Seth's somewhat estranged father ("Mad Men"'s John Slattery) and his city mouse girlfriend (Gabrielle Union) have similar plans. Needless to say, significant awkwardness ensues.

Thankfully, Gilford was able to flex some of those outdoor muscles in the film and shared with us some of the real-life family dramas (or comedies, rather) that shaped his performance. And, yeah, we may have talked about "Friday Night Lights" a bit. Get More »

Zach Galifianakis + Owen Wilson + 'Mad Men'?!

When you think "Mad Men," you think about expensive suits and martini lunches, not Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis — but that all may be about to change.

Matthew Weiner, the man who brought us Don Draper (swoon), has finally gotten the wheels turning on his passion project, "You Are Here," an indie film about two guys who need to get their lives together after one takes over a hefty inheritance following his father's passing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Q&A: Jon Hamm's New Very Adult Film

Jon Hamm freely admits that he slept with the director of his latest film.

Of course, that film is "Friends With Kids" and the writer-director-star is Jennifer Westfeldt, Hamm's girlfriend of 14 years.

"Kids" is an ensemble indie comedy about best buds (Westfeldt and Adam Scott) who, after watching all their couple friends start families, decide to procreate platonically. In a strange, bizarro world twist on "Bridesmaids," Hamm and Kristen Wiig make one of those friend pairings, while co-stars of the summer hit, Maya Rudolph and Chris O'Dowd, form another.

Hamm – who also produced – told us about working with his woman in creating an anti-explosion, anti-"Twilight," full-on adult movie. And get your mind out of the gutter, he doesn't mean porn. Get More »

Christina Hendricks, most famous for her role as Joan Holloway on the hit series "Mad Men," may be taking her '60s swagger to the silver screen.

Word around Tinseltown is that the fiery siren is in talks to appear in Sally Potter's upcoming "Bomb," an anti-nuclear flick set in Hendricks' decade of choice.

The drama tells the story of two teenage rebels, played by Elle Fanning and Alice Englart, who become involved in the Ban the Bomb movement and the sexual revolution (which means you might get to see little Fanning burn her bra). Get More »
