Many TV lovers became obsessed with the hit period drama series Mad Men. Set in the 1960’s advertising world, it was a wildly popular series that depicted and romanticized the fashion, personalities and workplace culture of that era. During the span of the show’s seven-season stint, the characters that we fell in love with continued to develop and become more complex. The show also dove deeper into the nuanced issues of the 60’s and how those complexities challenged the characters personally and professionally. The show eventually won both Golden Globes and Emmy awards. After such an amazing run and much success, you may be wondering where the stars of the show are now. What happened to the cast of this glitzy and riveting series? Here is a look at Mad Men stars, then and now.
Jon Hamm played Don Draper, everyone’s favorite ad man, whose job was to create the perfect ad, and have the general public fight tooth and nail to buy the products he advertised. Many revere his portrayal as Don Draper as his breakout role. Jon Hamm since has been in several episodes of 30 Rock, and had another outstanding role as the cult leader in the Netflix original series The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
Slattery was nominated for four supporting Emmy’s for his portrayal of Roger Sterling. What many liked about his role as Slattery was the effortlessness of his personality mixed with his blinding ambition. After Mad Men, he had a pretty cool role as Iron Man’s dad in several Marvel movies as Howard Stark. He was also in Ted 2.
Kevin had already been pretty well seen in shows like Desperate Housewives and Judging Amy. He then played Ted Chaough on Mad Men, and was the main rival of Don Draper. He went on to have a regular role on the drama Madam Secretary and the TV series Lethal Weapon as captain Brooks Avery.
