Move over “True Blood” the cast of AMC’s “Mad Men” not only took your Emmy for Best Drama, but their also taking your spot on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. The previous issue featured the naked, blood soaked bodies (which we loved by the way) of Alexander Skarsgard, Anna Paquin, and Stephen Moyer. We’re sure it was a big seller for the magazine, but this week they want to class it up with some old school 60s flare. Enter, Jon Hamm, January Jones, Elisabeth Moss, and Christina Hendricks.
Not only are the foursome on the cover but we’ve also got some behind the scenes photos taken from the “Mad Men” set. Check them out…
The “Mad Men” issue of Rolling Stone features an in depth interview with its stars, who reveal how much the show’s success has changed their careers. Jon Hamm speaks about how being a virtual unknown prior to this job, ended up working in his favor.
“If Rob Lowe had been cast in the part, it would have been different,” Jon Hamm told the magazine. “There was no backstory with me.”
According to Elisabeth Moss, there was a method to creator Matt Weiner’s casting madness.
“Matt always says that he basically hired a bunch of not-famous people, but people that had been working for a really long time,” she said.
Famous or not, Weiner made it work! This issue of Rolling Stone goes on sale Wednesday, September 1st.
