JANUARY JONES AS … PEGGY?
Casting for the pilot begins in 2006. Weiner and AMC agree on hiring unknown actors.
Christina Hendricks (Joan Holloway) I was up for another pilot, and I chose Mad Men. The [agency I was with] was like, “It’s on AMC, it’s a period piece, it’s never going to go. Are you crazy? You’re not going to make money for us …” I thought it was a little impatient of them. So I moved on.
A DOG NAMED DRAPER
With production having moved to Los Angeles, Mad Men premieres July 19, 2007, to critical acclaim but faces an uphill ratings battle and an uncertain future.
Hendricks It was during the writers strike, so there was no [Globes] ceremony. We all watched it from the Chateau Marmont and we just sat there with our mouths agape. The Emmys were the next thing up.
WEINER NEARLY WALKS
Instead, in March 2011, he takes home $30 million for a three-season contract after negotiations with AMC and Lionsgate sideline the network flagship for more than a year.
Hendricks At one point I thought, “This is taking a little too long.”
A HANGING — AND A KISS OF DEATH
Finally back on the air in 2012, Weiner makes adds (and cuts) to the cast and starts plotting an endgame.
Hendricks The common area [on the set] started as a piece of AstroTurf and a little glass table with four chairs, and then one year we came back and there was a full deck with a built-in fire pit and Christmas lights.
THE LONG GOODBYE
AMC splits the final season into two parts, with the last seven episodes airing nearly a year after it wraps in July 2014.

BERLIN– Keanu Reeves and Christina Hendricks have joined the cast of Nicolas Winding Refn’s “The Neon Demon,” the subversive female-driven horror tale that marks Danish helmer’s follow-up to “Only God Forgives.”
Sold and financed by Gaumont and Wild Bunch, “The Neon Demon” stars Elle Fanning (“Super 8″).
Abbey Lee (“Drive”), Jena Malone (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1″), and Bella Heathcote (“Beneath Hill 60″) round out the eclectic cast of up-and-coming actresses.
Refn’s partner, Lene Borglum (“Valhalla Rising,” “Only God Forgives”), is producing via their company Space Rocket.
Gaumont and Wild Bunch are shopping the project at the EFM and have started discussions with U.S. buyers.
The two Paris-based companies teamed on Refn’s last film, “Only God Forgives,” which world premiered in competition at Cannes.
Production is slated to begin March 30.
I’ve added screencaptures from the b-roll of Christina’s Nice ‘n Easy photoshoot, as well as two HQ shoot photos!
Christina Hendricks is arguably the most famous redhead in Hollywood, but that wasn’t always the case. She started her career as a blonde — until she nabbed a fateful modeling gig at 19. “Clairol took me red, and I was absolutely thrilled. I loved it so much, I still actually have the picture from the shoot,” she says. “I went back to my agency and said ‘I’m staying red, this it it, I love it.’ And they let me!”
And once she landed her role as Joan on Mad Men, fans everywhere started begging their stylists for Hendricks’s hair color. But as it turns out, she still gets it herself at home with Nice ‘n Easy “6R Natural Light Auburn.” Which is why it makes sense that, 20 years after she was a face of Miss Clairol, the brand’s tapping her again for their new ad campaigns.
“I did notice I started getting more modeling jobs as a redhead — I think because it was quite unique, there weren’t a lot of redheads around,” Hendricks said at the N.Y.C. shoot for the ad campaign, her second for the brand. “I think also because I felt so confident with it, I probably had a better attitude. I just felt gorgeous with it and I stuck with it for years.”
So in a town full of $1,000 highlights, what’s the secret to getting at-home hair color just right? “I’ve been dyeing my hair at home for years and years. I just follow the instructions on the box and it always turns out perfect, I don’t even think there is a trick!” she says, laughing. “I keep in my drawer every time I touch up because I trust it … I just follow what it says!”
One other benefit to her signature hue, Hendricks says, is that it inspires her to be a little daring with her red carpet looks. “Being a redhead has encouraged me to be a bit more playful with my fashion, a little more quirky and eccentric even sometimes,” she says. “I love headpieces and hats, I love curls and I love sleek, I love playing around with all those different things. When I go out in the evening, I like to play with color and jewelry. I think it complements being a redhead.”
The most important takeaway from the ad, for us? That your hair color is just a matter of mindset — and you should feel free to have fun with it! “I felt like I was a natural redhead,” Hendricks says of her transformation. “It was very natural and real to me.”
Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks has found her next gig. The five-time Emmy nominee will star in Showtime’s Roadies one-hour comedy pilot, which follows the day-to-day life of a successful rock tour. Hendricks will play the fictional band’s production manager.
She’s joining a strong cast on the pilot, including the previously announced Luke Wilson (Old School), Imogen Poots (The Look of Love), Rafe Spall (One Day), Peter Cambor (NCIS: Los Angeles), and Keisha Castle-Hughes (Whale Rider).
Hendricks is best known for AMC’s Mad Men, which will air its final episodes in the spring. She’ll also be seen in the film Dark Places, adapted from Gillian Flynn’s bestseller.
