prospect last year. Today, unconfirmed reports have begun swirling again that Hamm is being “seriously considered” for the David Goyer-penned script that Christopher Nolan is producing for Warner Bros. Unfortunately, Hamm’s rep tells us that the actor hasn’t talked to anyone about the role. “This is definitely false. So much speculation on these comic projects and 99% is wrong/wishful thinking!” the rep said via email. So as much as we’d love to see Hamm turn in his suit for a cape, at least for now, it will remain a dream.

Today’s most exciting rumor award goes to the gloriously welcome idea of Jon Hamm pulling on blue tights and taking that shiny black hair of his on a ride through the sky. The Mad Men star’s lantern jaw has long been bandied about as an obvious fit for a Superman reboot, with director/comic book geek Kevin Smith wholeheartedly endorsing the

Awww, Don Draper, don’t cry. What’s the matter? Do you have an ouchie boo-boo? Is your shirt drawer empty? Are you scared of all the bright, non-brown colors the counter-culture youth are wearing? Are you re-enacting the end of Spider-Man 3? Have you become an internet meme? Was it the onions?
Peggy Olson spying on Don Draper through the glass partition was my favorite moment of last night’s Mad Men and quite possibly the greatest hidden gem of the series so far. I found it so inspiring that I’m doing the same thing to Ausiello right now, and our offices don’t even have glass sections below the ceiling! All you really need is a power drill and one good eye.

Countdown To 'Mad Men:' Four Fearless Predictions About Season 4! Plus: The Don-Betty-'Moonlighting' Connection!
For the past several months, the following question has come my way on an almost daily basis: “What are you going to do now that Lost is over?” Usually, this inquiry is accompanied by a look of grave concern in the eyes of the inquirer, as if they’re beholding a man who has lost his reason for living and should be kept far away from razor blades. Please! Don’t be fooled by my frazzled hair and emaciated frame and the fact that I burst into tears anytime anyone even mentions the word Lost. I’m fine! Really! I AM GOING TO BE OKAY! Okay? Just don’t come near me with your YouTube videos of Jack Shephard’s death march across The Island…
Don’t you DARE–
Great. Now I’m a blubbery mess. Sigh. Vincent. They had to play the dog card, didn’t they?
Seriously, even though I have spent the past six years writing pretty extensively about Lost, I have been watching other television shows, as well. In fact, my post-Lost angst has been greatly assuaged by the arrival of my other favorite drama: Mad Men. Since discovering the series prior to the start of its second season in 2008, I’ve been pretty obsessed with Matthew Weiner’s acclaimed period drama about Madison Avenue advertising professionals in the 1960s. The fascinating knit of character, culture, and history even gets my theory-making brain going in the same way that Lost did. And so, as I continue to search for a shiny new cult pop bauble to get all Gollum and preciousssss about (Rubicon? The Event? The Walking Dead?), I’ll be geeking out on Mad Men. We begin with four fearless predictions about the fourth season, inspired by the events of last week’s season premiere. (Actually, I originally came up with five predictions, but one of them—Don will rehire Sal, and soon—morphed into a 3000 word essay about something else altogether; I’ll share that with you next week.)
Before we begin, please know: I do not expose myself to Mad Men spoilers, and I don’t watch episodes in advance. None of what follows is based on any kind of foreknowledge of upcoming events. So if I’m right, it’s pure dumb luck. And if I’m wrong? Pure dumb.
In honor of Mad Men’s fourth season (FINALLY) debuting tonight, let’s all name the four things we’d most like to see in tonight’s premiere.
1. Casual Friday implemented at the new Sterling-Cooper-Draper-Pryce so we can feast on at least one gratuitous shot of Don Draper in leisurewear
2. At least a passing reference to dearly departed Sal
3. Sally Draper threatens to burn training bra; Betty makes proper use of Victorian fainting couch
4. Many more than two scoops of Joan, the real brains behind the operation
After the jump, a few Mad Men-themed internet gems that could help as you meditate on the emergency of having nothing to do until 10/9c tonight. READ FULL STORY
The trailer for Howl, which centers on the obscenity trial Allen Ginsberg (James Franco) faced after the publication of his poem of the same name, is now online. We see a lot of Franco and the performance EW critic Owen Gleiberman said nails “the poet’s winningly bombastic urban-intellectual glee; he’s like a young rabbi letting himself go in the New York beatnik underground.” (The film screened at Sundance.) Watch it below. I’m sure I should be thinking of weightier things to type, but really, all that’s going through my mind is that I’m glad all of glimpses of Jon Hamm (who plays the attorney who defends City Lights bookstore proprietor Lawrence Ferlinghetti, so he’s in a nice suit) are in color.
