Mad Men cover Rolling Stone

When we first started watching Mad Men, we couldn't understand why Jon Hamm would want to cheat on someone as sexy and gorgeous as January Jones, while we wondered why all those office girls were getting all the buzz from fans.

Now, everything has changed. Elisabeth Moss is an indisputable bombshell of talent, looks and sex appeal, while Christina Hendricks is, you know, just all right. (Just kidding, obviously.) The three lady stars of the show never look better — or more Photoshopped — with Hamm on the cover of the new Rolling Stone, which hits stores on Friday.

The magazine gave us a little teaser, which sadly doesn't have anything to do with sex:

After three seasons on AMC, a basic-cable network previously known for endless reruns of second-rate movies, Mad Men established a hold on America's fantasy life like no show since The Sopranos. "The big question the show is trying to answer through Don has to do with identity," Weiner says. "Who am I? — It's only the biggest theme in all of Western literature."

To make it happen, Weiner assembled a cast he could relate to — veteran actors who had spent their careers toiling in relative obscurity. Jon Hamm, who plays Draper, had a few scenes in We Were Soldiers. January Jones, who plays his brittle and ethereal ex-wife, Betty, showed up in the third American Pie movie as Stifler's love interest. Christina Hendricks, who rules the offices of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce as Joan, appeared in a video for the Nineties rock band Everclear. Nobody wanted them. Today, everybody knows their names, everybody covets their careers, everybody wants to get next to them. [Rolling Stone]

"Get next to them"? We're pretty sure that term isn't invented until season eight, set in 1971, when Al Green takes over the world.
