Mad Men on Charlie Rose

Jul 30th, 2008 | Categories: Mad Men, TV, Video | by Michael Williams

Matthew Weiner, Jon Hamm and John Slattery stopped by Charlie Rose this past week for a discussion about the comings and goings of one of the best shows on television. The lead-in to the segment featured some Mad Men influences like Gentleman’s Agreement, The Apartment, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Classics, all of them. The conversation with Weiner (the show’s creator) and the two lead actors was interesting and insightful. Seeing Hamm and Slattery out of character is always strange to my eyes, but the discussion offered good insight into where season two is heading. Rose never fails to amuse me with his constant paper shuffling and magazine touting — never missing a chance to show off a good periodical and give an actor a good ribbing.

    Great video. I haven’t been able to find this even on Google video, which seems weird. Anyway, great post!

    With his usual confidence and poise, Mr Rose stumbles through this with an echo of Martin Mull in Fernwood Tonight. Interrupting with no clue about the show. Asking inane questions- – with no insight into the show. But Charlie knows one thing. It’s a hot show. And that’s enough for him.

    The actors and producer must go through this often because they took it all in stride and were so patient with Charlie who, for most of his career, did get by with a shoe shine.

    “What did you bring me, daddy?” Man, an amazing line that means so much.
