Katie Couric: Why Can’t Don Draper Keep It in His Pants?
As Don Draper, Jon Hamm gets it. By “it,” I mean women. Any woman he wants, any time he wants them. Ladies fall over themselves for a piece of Draper/Jon Hamm. On April 29, Katie Couric asks Hamm why Don Draper just can’t keep it in his pants. He is clearly caught off guard by the question, but it’s not something he hasn’t gotten before.
“Oh, boy,” he says, “I feel so weird talking about this with my wife and my ex-wife on the stage.”
The wife is Jessica Pare, Megan Draper, and the ex-wife would be January Jones, formerly Betty Draper. Aside from those two women, it’s uncertain how many other women Don Draper has slept with in the six seasons of the show.
What’s Coming Up in Season Six of Mad Men?
Through the last six seasons, Mad Men’s fans have remained fiercely loyal to the show. They love the drama and the style of the show. From Christina Hendricks’ (Joan Harris) curves to the unpredictable nature of Draper, they are constantly in shock and also comforted by the direction of the show. Creator Matt Weiner is talking on April 29 about the sixth season.
The creators of Mad Men want fans to love the show, but they also keep their ideas under wraps. You never know when a guest star is going to surface. Already this season, Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks) and Ted McGinley have made guest appearances.
The stars, directors and writers of Mad Men sit down with Katie on April 29. What do you want to see on season six of Mad Men?
