Rumor Buster: Mel Gibson appearing on Mad Men?

09.24.2010

Don't know if you've heard the news but as it turns out, Mel Gibson has found himself in another dilly of a pickle. He's still got a film on the way - THE BEAVER, directed by Jodie Foster - but that was filmed before this latest career crisis. A lot of attention has been turned to whether Gibson, seen to the right peering deep into your soul, can and will ever work again. So when a rumor pops up online that he's in talks to guest star on a highly popular TV series, it catches like wildfire. But is it true?

Yesterday gossip maven Liz Smith set of a firestorm when she said that Gibson had talks with "Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner about a starring role in the show's upcoming fifth season. Said Liz: "Weiner – who is Jewish and can overlook Mel’s infamous drunk rant of several years ago – told a pal recently that he sees a lot of dramatic potential pitting Mel against Don Draper." Only problem? It's not true.

Entertainment Weekly actually reached out to a source on "Mad Men" who said the rumor is completely false and that Weiner and Gibson have never met nor spoke about anything, let alone a role on the show. There were also rumors a while back that a Gibson cameo was written into another MAD property - the MAD MAX reboot, but that too appears to be nothing but a lot of wishful thinking.

Extra Tidbit: Maybe Gibson should guest on "Mad TV" or "Mad Money." Or "Mad About You." Or... you get the point.

You gotta' admit, though...Mel Gibson would do the title "Mad Men" justice by being on the show.

That would be awesome. Not because of Mad Men - very overrated show as usual. But because it would mean Gibson still could get work.. which I truely hope.. Man, I can't even think of him never making a movie again.. I just fucking don't care about his (or any other Hollywood) private life. I want to see his movies - like every real film fan should.

I like Mephistopheles as much as the next person, but seriously, that pic is getting a little too literal.

Are you serious? With this guy's world views, drinking problem and women abuse he was fucking born to play a role in Mad Men.

Even if we don't get Mel and we probably won't, the idea of somebody as strong as Draper's character to come in and face off against him sounds like a fantastic idea.

That rumour doesn't even make sense. Season four is probably barely out of production (if at all) and it would be months before season five would be up and running. Therefore no scripts, no new casting, no nothing.
