On Luck: “I think if our show would’ve been on NBC at 7 o’clock or 9 o’clock on Tuesdays it wouldn’t have made it. The network model is that you have to draw a very large number of people to be successful and we—by the grace of whoever—have been given the opportunity to build an audience by the fact that it’s on cable.”

On Madmen 1966: “Don is getting older. It’s not the sixties where everybody stays the same age for 20 years in. People age and we are trying to depict that realistically.”

On Working with Jessica Pare: “It’s nonstop hockey talk. I’m from St. Louis and we’re doing very well and I’m able to lay into her about her beloved Canadians. Jessica is lovely. She’s not new to this business. She actually worked on a show with John Slattery many, many years ago, on Jack and Bobby.”

On How Don’s Marriage Will Change Peggy and Don’s Relationship: “It’s certainly something that is explored in season five. We don’t really know. Peggy and Don are very close and Peggy has opinions and Don has opinions.”

On Betty and Don: “I think that whatever happens in a marriage —and I’ve never been involved in a relationship that’s gone kaflooey after a long time or gone into marriage and all the attendant drama that can create—but I think anyone’s who’s been in a relationship there’s always something there.”

After Mad Men: “I haven’t really thought about it. I really like my day job and I’m happy that we’re gonna do it for a few more years and I will let whatever happens next, happen next. I’m not a good predictor of what comes next and I’m not very good at being tremendously ambitious so I will sort of drift along and see what happens.”

On Making Bridesmaids II: “Every time I open my mouth about that, I get in trouble for that so I really don’t know. I was a very small part of that very big picture but I’m sure someone is having a conversation about it somewhere but I’m sure it doesn’t involve me.”

On Women: “I don’t think I’ve learned anything about women from playing Don. I think everything I’ve learned about women is from being raised by my mother and living with Jen (ifer Westfeldt).”
