As you might expect from of one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of recent years, if not ever, the cast of AMC's "Mad Men" have begun making inroads to the big screen in recent years. Star Jon Hamm has been the most successful in finding decent roles, thanks to "Bridesmaids" and "The Town," but his cast-mates are finding work as well, even if the parts have generally been one-tenth as interesting as their characters on Matthew Weiner's show; John Slattery reprised Roger Sterling, but in a hat, in "The Adjustment Bureau," Vincent Kartheiser got villainous in "In Time," Elisabeth Moss played the thankless girlfriend in "Get Him To The Greek" and January Jones stood around in a push-up bra in "X-Men: First Class."

There aren't many experimental video and performance artists who can also say they've directed a film starring international megastar Johnny Depp, but Sally Potter is one of them. Well, the only one. Making her feature debut with the 1983 Julie Christie film "The Gold Diggers," she came to international attention with her excellent 1992 adaptation of Virginia Woolf's "Orlando," starring Tilda Swinton, before going on to make "The Tango Lesson," "The Man Who Cried" (which starred Depp and Cate Blanchett), and the underrated, spoken-entirely-in-iambic-pentameter "Yes," with Joan Allen.
