Saw VI actress Jon Mack loves raw food

The multi-talented Jon Mack is very different from the drug addict she plays in the popular horror movie Saw VI. In real life, she's spiritual, an animal rights activist and loves raw vegan food! I spoke with her recently and found her to be charming and smart.

3 Questions for AMC re: Mad Men

We love that Mad Men won the best TV drama Emmy--congrats to Matthew Weiner and the cast and crew!--and we have three questions:

1. Will AMC re-air the episode they ran last night during and just after the Emmys? We sure hope so, as many people (including me) missed it due to the Emmys, and can't bear the thought that we did.

2. Will AMC create an e-mail list by which it can easily notify fans of announcements related to the show? We don't know why it hasn't done this by now!

3. And finally, why hasn't AMC made a copy of Joan's pen necklace for fans to buy? We women (especially those of us who are writers) would love one.

Singer with a Voice Just Like Christina Hendricks's

I've never heard the actress Christina Hendricks (Joan on Mad Men) sing, but in some of the ballads ("Secret Love" "Accustomed to his Face") this singer named Jamie sounds just like what I would imagine Christina would sound like if she sang as her character Joan!

Rally to Get Mad Men Back for a Third Season!

If you've never watched the coruscatingly brilliant TV drama Mad Men, you're in for a treat when you get a hold of their DVDs.

Mad Men is a period piece about a Madison Avenue (NYC) ad agency in the early 1960s--the office politics, the jockeying for position, the personal lives of the assorted employees--and is set in the context of what's going on politically and culturally at the time.  The show, which also delves into the machinations of the ad business at that time, is picture perfect in every way:  writing, directing, casting, acting, production design, costumes, hair styles--and anything else I might be forgetting!

Mad Men, which airs on AMC, won the Golden Globe award for best TV drama for both of its two seasons. Its gifted and devastatingly handsome lead actor, Jon Hamm, who plays the agency's creative director, the complex and mysterious Don Draper, won the Globe in 2008 as the best actor in a TV drama. He and the gorgeous and talented actress January Jones, who plays his on-screen wife, were nominated in the recent Globes as best TV actors in a drama.

Media are now reporting that the series's creator and executive producer, Matthew Weiner, says he doesn't even know if the show is coming back for a third season.

How can this be?  Is there no justice in this world at all?
