Hm. I'm not familiar with the comic, but writer Brian Wood was the subject of some bad sexual harassment press recently...

I am pissed about the split season. I am not that anxious about it.

Nice article, but somehow I feel an overwhelming sense of irony and sadness that this article about a beautiful, talented actress in her role as a young woman at a particular time, making her own way in a man's world, we see Elizabeth Moss, semi-clothed in multiple shots. Her name may appear second in the credits but I can't remember seeing any photos of Jon Hamm semi-clothed or much discussion of what he was wearing.

But good article. I can see why you liked it (multiple reasons).

Hamm has a great sense of humor, but is/was really annoyed with the great deal of attention the tabloids and internet gave to his 'going commando' ways...

(She says she's #4 on the call sheet, and I assume Roger is 2 or 3, but I wonder if it's Pete or Betty that is the other one ahead of her...)

The difference is we don't see Hamm going commando.

The audience doesn't see the call sheet, but does see the credits.

I'm just being pissy. It really gets to me that women must somehow display their bodies in order to be noticed. If you don't you are ignored and/or assumed to be uptight and dowdy. The body, face, hair are all quite secondary to the person's talents.

TGIR, ITA. Don't see any cheescake of the male cast, at all. I love that Moss is unconventially pretty unlike Jones who is cookie cutter blond.

Agree with the last part, for sure.

And yes, we'll sometimes see actresses give in to pressure from whomever to do a sexy magazine shoot that doesn't quite go with what we know of them... In the case of Moss, though, I've seen that she likes to break her 'Peggy' image when she can.. This wasn't something she's uncomfortable with, I'm sure.
