Yesterday, the Daily Beast dissected "The Suitcase" episode from Mad Men's fourth season with exec producer Matt Weiner and star Jon Hamm. The game-changing episode features Don Draper (Hamm) and his secretary Peggy Olson (Elisabeth Moss) pulling an all-nighter in the office, as personal and professional drama reaches a breaking point.

Weiner admited: "I've been mostly Peggy in my career," to which Hamm added that he had been: "Some Pete [as well]."

Though the premiere of the next season of Mad Men is still far off--it's slated for March 2012--this interview may tide you over, as well as some phenomenal unofficial posters for the upcoming season.
