Calling All Readers | The Mad Men Walk-on War!!

AMC and Banana Republic are holding a cyber casting call for a walk-on role on Mad Men -- and Porter rabidly wants to win.  We got her all gussied up and pushed that pram all the way down Bedford Ave. so she could display postpartum apathy towards an imaginary child.  This was our second favorite shot.  Click here to see the "winner" (in our minds) and vote!


(Update - as of 2:41 ET on Monday, she's in second place! Amazing!!!! Thank you all so much!  Keep on clickin'!)

Paul Baxendale said...

Porter is CLEARLY the top candidate, and at the very least gets an A+ for effort! It was funny looking through the contestant photos-- didn't anyone read the instructions/get the concept of the contest? Porter nailed it!

Well, if the leader board is any indication, Porter is currently ahead of everyone! I hope she wins.
This is my first comment to your site, btw. Not for lack of interest, but simply because I find myself more often just nodding my head in agreement and enjoying the photos and links you post. Your aesthetic is tremendous, and I've been a subscriber for a while.

And of course... I fudged the first comment! That first link won't take you anywhere. Sometimes, technology just doesn't agree with me.

All I can say is wow. Porter looks great and the competition isn't even trying. It's so sad to see men in oversized suits thinking they look good.

All of the other candidates look a little sad next to Porter. I'm going to borrow my friend's Iphone so can vote again.

my ballet has been cast!

Percy Chatsworth said...

As others have already stated, Porter's photo/entry should be the winner, as she seems to be the only contestant to have read the rules. I found it very funny that other contestants think that they could win simply by putting on a tie, one that isn't even related to the era.

porter hovey said...

Wow! Thank you so much for voting!! Keep up the great work!!! I'm so excited!! YAY!!!

LPC said...

Still winning! I will post too.

Porter,
I would expect them to beg you for an appearance. If for some reason it doesn't work out I vow to take my tele out back and riddle it with buckshot( on video.)

That said, best of luck. I am a huge fan of you and your sister. Should you have the opportunity to visit AK you are both welcome.

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Haha, I totally voted! Good luck!

JMW said...

I'll definitely cast a vote for Porter.

BTW, I've enjoyed reading your blog for a while and then saw the article in today's Times. Congrats!

Clarity said...

MY sister adores that show, criticises the second season but still watches. Your sister looks chic!
