‘Mad Men’ auctioning off guest part

August 15, 2010

I’m a huge fan of Mad Men! Maybe because I own an ad agency and would love to time travel to the 60’s to work at Sterling Cooper…

I became an addict when I was pregnant and was ordered to restrict activity by the doctor… I ordered all the seasons on Netflix, caught up on the drama and now can’t hardly wait for Sunday nights! I would love a guest part!! How fun!

Jon Hamm as Don Draper on AMC’s “Mad Men”


Executives behind TV hit “Mad Men” are auctioning off a walk-on role on the critically acclaimed drama to benefit a cancer charity.

The show, about life in the advertising world in 1960s New York, regularly features its leading actors, including Jon Hamm and John Slattery, puffing away on cigarettes and auction organizers are putting a twist on this aspect of the program — by donating a portion of the profits to the Lung Cancer Program at California’s City of Hope.

Sandra Stern, chief operating officer at the Lionsgate production firm, says, “The smoking depicted in ‘Mad Men’ was ubiquitous in the ’60s world of Madison Avenue advertising and is a vivid reminder of how far we’ve progressed in our attitudes toward smoking since then.”

Wardrobe pieces worn by Christina Hendricks and January Jones‘ characters are also being sold off in the 10-day auction on website, as well as ’60s-style furniture and other props from the hit show, reports Reuters.

The sale ends on Aug. 22.
