Mel Gibson not heading to 'Mad Men' (exclusive)

Rumors that Mel Gibson may appear on Mad Men are false, according to a source close to the show. A report circulated earlier today that Gibson had met with Mad Men creator Matt Weiner, but “the two have never met,” the source said.

    How the he11 did that rumor start? And Mad Zmen is about the last series I’d expect stung casting from, so this debunking of a rumor is no surprise.

      Personally, I’ll be quite pleased if that **^#*)*^@@* never appears anywhere, in any media, ever again.

  • Disar

    Pardon my typos. Damn iPhone.

    First of all I agree that Mad Men is the last series that needs stunt casting, but Gibson could be great on the show. If this was a serious thing perhaps they are just denying it for the time being? I mean Mad Men season 5 won’t even go in to filming for another 8 months? Perhaps give Mel time to regain some credibility (his performance in The Beaver is apparently oscar worthy if it gets released).

      “Gibson could be great on the show”

      As a speedbump?

        Good one!

        Hehehe…I think I was actually ridaeng your blog when you updated ::blush:: You’re a really interesting read, I identify with you a lot, particularity because of your annoyance with the army (navy in my case) :) I really enjoyed your sunday story…that’s an good concept, mind if I mimic u?

    If Gibson was on this show, I can guarantee they won’t be picking up anymore awards.

  • Cris

    I imagine Christina Hendricks, or as Mel would undoubtedly call her, Sugart*ts, was happy to know the rumor wasn’t true.

  • Brett

    Too bad. All the haters posting here have apparently forgotten that Mel’s a damn good actor. The cast of “Mad Men” would consider themselves lucky to have half of his acting career.

    • Macknz

      I’m pretty sure Jon Hamm is on his way to have an amazing acting career. And probably even better than Mel Gibson.

      First off, I hate the word “haters” – no pun intended. Seriously, isn’t that term overused and too broad?

      I don’t disagree that Mel Gibson is a fine actor…however, I would have been shocked if they had cast him even if the last 5 years hadn’t happened. Scandal or no, he would have been too high-profile an actor to be on the show, and it would have been jarring to see such a recognizable face in a show that has created such a nice little insular bubble for itself.

      Personally, I wouldn’t want to see any “stars” on the show at all.

    • Futurama

      Good actor, $hitty human being.

    Thank goodness it’s not true.

    Given the attitudes towards women and blacks in the time period this show depicts, I’m guessing it must be Mel’s vision of Heaven.

    Re Mel Gibson in “The Beaver”. Haven’t heard much about this film or whatever it is. Will Mel play Wally, June, Ward or The Beav? I think he’d be best as Eddie Haskell.

  • Blue Silver

    I’ll be checkin’ out, “The Beaver”. …..Big freakin’ deal. The so called, Mel’s ‘rant’ tapes were never authenticated, as far as I know. The media’s ability to tarnish or even destroy someone’s rep is measured by the fools who believe things based on hearsay and not concrete proof. Hell, so many people supported Roman Polanski’s movies over the years even when most of us knew of his legal troubles(yes, there was solid, evident proof) that had been following him for decades.

  • The Truth

    Why ruin Mad Men and it’s credibility by supporting the known hatred and abuse that Mel stands for?

    Anyone who casts Mel in anything = death sentence for their show.
