The Mad Men Verdict Is In!

Yep. That little photo of her in a Jackie do, smokin' away on the steps of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank with a pram full of blankets and ciggies did the job.  She won Banana Republic's Mad Men Casting Call and will have a little walk on role in an episode during season 4!  Thank you - sincerely - to all of you who voted and voted and campaigned for her.   Hello, Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce!  So exciting!!!

If Sterling Cooper Draper Price weren't enough, the return of Joanie wasn't enough, we now have to wait till next summer for Porter's walk on!? Seems so far away!

And all this time I thought Hollister Hovey and Porter Hovey were noms de plume. Congrats for Mad Men…and for having bad-ass names.

She truly deserves the role! The producers may very well realize their luck and cast her as Betty's new best friend...

How cool.
I walked by her that day, after a brunch at Diner, not knowing it was one of my followed bloggers in the flesh! I just thought, "Nerds." Then the original post about voting appeared on one of the Hovey blogs and blew my mind.

Were you the photographer?
