Watch Matthew Weiner Go On And On For Like Six Hours

If you start now you can be done by the weekend. The Archive of American Television is not messing around. They've released a 6-hour interview with Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner, in which he goes into great detail about the show, his life, his philosophy on art, etc. I'm guessing he also has time to talk about whether he's a boxers or a briefs man, who killed JFK, abortion, and which of the Herculoids are his favorites. Anyway, I did watch a couple random bits of this, and it does seem kind of interesting. Maybe if I ever have a couple weeks free I'll watch the whole thing. The video here is just the first hour, and you can watch the rest here. There's some interesting stuff about the development of "Mad Men," like the hilarious revelation that January Jones (who plays Don Draper's wife Betty) auditioned for the role of Peggy. If you've never seen "Mad Men," trust me, that's interesting.

Colbert Interviews Weiner, Asks The 'Mad Men' Questions We're All Thinking

Colbert voices all of our criticisms of 'Mad Men'. As we wrap up the front half of the final season of Mad Men, it's time to clear the air, and Colbert does exactly that when he sits down with series creator and showrunner Mathew Weiner. He touches on the following during the brief interview: Why is the season split in the frustrating Breaking Bad fashion? Why is everything so sad in the show? Does Mathew Weiner fear 70's fashion? And oh, so much more. So take a look, mourn the loss, then curse the creator (Weiner, not God) for drawing this out far longer than he should have.


The 'Mad Men' Series Finale Teaser Once Again Gives Us Nothing To Work With

Why would they change things up now? Mad Men has had historically unhelpful teasers at the end of its show. Matthew Weiner is required to do them by AMC, but doesn't wish to give anything away, so the result is a chain of non sequiturs and inane dialog from the upcoming episode. This time around, in anticipation of the last Mad Men ever, we don't even get that. What we get in this extended, minute-long clip is a series of looks back at the time we've already spent with these rotten people. We don't know where the show is going in its last hour, but this clip does offer a slightly sentimental take on where its been. Take a look.


Matthew McConaughey's 'Dazed and Confused' Audition Tape is the Most McConaughey Thing to Ever McConaughey

If you ever wanted proof that McConaughey *is* Wooderson (and vice versa), this is it. By Jared Jones It is often said that the greatest actors don't act at all, really, but rather bring certain (enhanced) aspects of their own personality into the character they are portraying — prime examples of this being Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski, John Wayne in everything, and Matthew McConaughey in Dazed and Confused. With his perpetually laid-back vibe and penchant for stony anecdotes, McConaughey *is* Wooderson and vice versa, hence why the actor will always be looked at through the lense of his first defining role. Perhaps to confirm our long-running and well-backed suspicions about McConaughey the person, the Criterion Collection decided to release his original audition tape for Dazed and Confused yesterday. It is without a doubt the most McConaughey thing to ever McConaughey. According to FilmDrunk, the then-23-year-old McConaughey only wound up in Dazed and Confused after meeting the film's casting director at the Hyatt bar where "McConaughey’s buddy used to bartend and give him free beer." My guess is that said director took one look into McConaughey's steely blue, glazed over eyes and instantly knew that everything was going to be all right, all right, all right. Check out McConaughey's audition tape above, which features his now infamous "high school girls" line and even an appearance by future Dazed and Confused co-star Willy Wiggins. Willy Wiggins. With a name like that, it's a shame that kid's career never took off.

Made Man's 'Men Of The Moment': Vince Gilligan

Spend twenty minutes with the man! Keep an eye on this Gilligan kid. He's got a promising career in television. Made Man recently sat down with the drama juggernaut to talk about success, the future, and, of course, Breaking Bad. It's interesting to revisit the show a) because it's awesome, and b) because it's been long enough since the maelstrom of coverage that we get a slightly different perspective. Granted, it's only been like a couple months, but it FEELS like a long time. Whatever. It's Breaking Bad-related. Just watch it.


Don Draper Arrives In First Teaser For 'Mad Men's' Final Season

This gives us so much, yet so little. The first teaser for the final season of Mad Men is here and gives us very little. Or maybe it's a lot. That's the beauty of Mad Men. It's got symbolism out the butt. Here we see Don Draper stepping off a plane and putting a hat on his head in slow motion. Where is he arriving? Did he follow Megan to California? Did he return to his hometown to confront the ghost of Dick Whitman? Does he realize his hat got switched with another guy's and go back on the plane to try to swap it out because of cooties? The symbolism is there, people. Look closer to find out.


Matthew McCounaughey To Frustrate Us With Two More Lincoln Ads On New Year's Day

He could show up at my door, carry me to the dealership, and I still wouldn't buy a Lincoln. Matthew McConaughey's first Lincoln ads caused a bit of a blip on the pop culture radar, getting spoofed by South Park, SNL, and all your friends who do really shitty Matthew McConaughey impressions. Operating under the assumption that no press is bad press, Lincoln's dropping two more ads on us. On New Year's Day. When they know we'll be too hungover to get up and change the channel. A sample quote from one of the new ads: "You gotta find that balance where taking care of yourself takes care of more than just yourself." "This steering wheel is a flat circle." (I made the second one up, but the first one is real.) The top video is ridiculous conventionally, but the second one (below) is a head scratcher. He's clearly waiting in a diner to buy either a handgun or cocaine when he gets a revelation. HOW IS LINCOLN RESPONSIBLE FOR THAT?
