  1. And…here is a very cute dog walking a very cute and trim-looking Hamm. Although the text is ridiculous, it does point out that Mr. Hamm has been very busy with his post-Mad Men work on 6 movies (which I hope the Lipp Sisters will review).

  2. Christina Hendricks appeared Wednesday , along with The Wire’s “Omar” (Michael Kenneth Williams) on HBO’s Any Given Wednesday with BIll Simmons.

    This show will repeat ten times on HBO’s broadcast channels Sunday-Tuesday.

    • Less than half of that 5-6 minute interview is here:
