Waiting for ‘Mad Men:’ Jared Harris can tell us nothing

At this point, halfway through production, any contact with reporters probably has to happen with a “Mad Men” producer holding a gun to his head to ensure he doesn’t let anything slip.

As I wait for the new season of “Mad Men” to begin, I’ll share a few of the more interesting links I’ve found. Read past entries in this series here.

The Wall Street Journal‘s Speakeasy blog recently checked in with Jared Harris, who plays Lane Pryce, and asked him how Season 5 is working out.

Naturally, he didn’t drop any hints on plot developments and kept a safe distance from anything specific. At this point, halfway through production, any contact with reporters probably has to happen with a “Mad Men” producer holding a gun to his head to ensure he doesn’t let anything slip. But it’s good to hear from him nonetheless.

“I think as excited as everyone is to see the season,” he said, “we are just as excited when we are waiting for the next script. Whether any of us are in the episode or not, everyone is invited to the read through and we all look forward to seeing what’s happened next.”
