You're off and running now.
John Slattery’s on-screen ex-wife Mona (and real-life real-wife!) was once famously married to this major A-Lister:
If you said GEORGE CLOONEY, you’re right!
Lucky lady, that Talia Balsam.
Don meets Betty when she was a model for a new client he was working with. Who was the client?
A candy shop
A department store
A fur store
If you said FUR STORE, you’re right!
‘Twas love at first mink stole.
Robert Morse (Who plays oft-shoeless Bert Cooper) starred in the original Broadway production of which smash hit?
How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks)
Larisa Oleynik (The Adventures of Alex Mac)
Dennis Haskins (Mr. Belding, people!)
David Hyde Pierce (Frasier)
If you said DAVID HYDE PIERCE, you’re right!
Because he looks way better in early 90′s clothes. Hit up season 6 to see Linda Cardellini as Don’s mistress, Sylvia, seasons 4 & 5 to see Larisa Oleynik as Ken Gosgrove’s wife, Cynthia, and Season 5 to see Dennis Haskins as a Cool Whip test-kitchen scientist. Natch.

She dated Ashton Kutcher early in their careers, Josh Groban from 2003-2006 and Jason Sudeikes briefly from July 2010-January 2011.
Which actor who plays a popular commercial character appeared on the first season of Mad Men?
The Progressive Lady
The Verizon Guy
The “Dude, You Got A Dell!” Guy
If you said THE PROGRESSIVE LADY, you’re right!
Before she was Flo, she was a telephone operator at Sterling Cooper on Season 1! And can you tell who’s sitting next to her? It’s the hilarious Kristen Schaal! The more you know.
Before he hit it big, Jon Hamm taught which subject at a St. Louis High School?
If you said DRAMA TEACHER, you’re right!
And he taught the star of Bridesmaids & The Office, Ellie Kemper!
In one memorable scene, a Sterling Cooper employee experiences an unfortunate accident at the company Christmas Party. What was it?
His foot is run over by a lawn mower
His hand gets cut off by a chainsaw
He is set on fire by Peggy
He is stabbed with a letter opener by Joan
If you said LAWNMOWER, you're right!
Cause anything else would have been crazy.
When did series creator Matthew Weiner figure out when the series would end?
When he wrote the pilot 15 years ago
After the first season
After the second season
After the fourth season
If you said FOURTH SEASON, you’re right!
He told Variety, “The actual ending came to me all at once. Once I knew what (the ending) was, I could see that there are things throughout the entire series that will seem related to it. Certainly there are things in these first seven episodes that you’ll go back to and be able to say, ‘Oh there it is.’”
How’d you do? Would Joan be proud? Share in the comments or tweet us @OKMagazine!
