Natalie Zea of Justified on FX interviewed about the show, Timothy Olyphant and her career (exclusive video)

Natalie Zea on Justified FX series

The drama Justified is currently airing on Tuesday nights at 10 PM ET on the FX network . I had the opportunity to join a conference call with Natalie Zea, who plays Winona Hawkins, the ex-wife of Timothy Olyphant‘s U.S. Deputy Marshall Raylan Givens. (I’ve noted when it was my own question.) Here’s what she had to say. Continue reading

MAD MEN NEWS: Season 4 begins July 25 and AMC denies the show will end after Season 6! Is this a HOAX?

Here's where we left off.

IT IS COMING! For the fourth July in a row, the greatest television series on Earth returns to lay waste to our Sunday nights with its wit and brilliance and genius and style and darkness.

Mad Men will return on July 25th, 2010, only on AMC (src: Deadline Hollywood, linked to from The Hollywood Reporter “Live Feed.”)

If you’re a fan, the anticipation is killing you. The questions abound.

What year will it be?

Will Don and Betty be divorced?

Will Betty still be with that Henry Poole dingus?

How will the Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce agency be doing?

Will Pete have been made partner?  Will his tennis shorts have lengthened?

Will Peggy have found a guy or embraced that dormant Greenwich Village lesbian that we all know lurks inside her? Speaking of…

Will Sal still be trolling for rough trade in the Lambda Lambda Lambda section of Central Park or be back home, settled snugly with his no-longer-clueless wife Kitty?

Will Guy the Brit wonder get his other foot chopped off by some sort of lawn maintenance machine?

But that’s not the only big Mad Men news to drop in the past 24 hours. 

Or is it?

The story goes that Matt Weiner announced at the NAB convention that the show will end after its sixth season in 2012.   But the only source for this story was the wordpress blog weeklyblend.com, and the article in question is riddled with typos and grammatical errors, thus leading one to wonder about its legitimacy. 

"Whachu talkin' 'bout, Weiner?"

Following this story, AMC quickly issued a denial

A spokeswoman for AMC assures that no end date has been set for the show and issued this statement on behalf of the network: “No one wants to see Don Draper wearing a leisure suit.  We trust Matthew’s vision and that he knows where to take the show.  But with that said, M*A*S*H figured how to stretch the Korean War for more than a decade, so stay tuned! “

But even that statement sounds like a fake!  Stay tuned, because methinks there may be more to this story.
