Last week, April 17th, was Joel Murray‘s birthday. Joel plays Freddy Rumsen, the drunk who discovered Peggy Olson’s knack for standing apart from the crowd, “seeing the benefit” of the product, and ultimately, for copywriting. I remember him as Greg’s goofy friend on Dharma and Greg.
And next week, April 29th, is Darby Stanchfield, who plays the oozing Helen Bishop. The AMC site/blog/thing just posted an interview with her. She’s been getting a lot of work over the last few years, and just nails it as Helen. And it’s more than simply a matter of how she works the pants…
(I’ve been working on a whole Helen Bishop post… gimme a few hours and come back for it.)
April birthday Kisses to both of you!
