Elisabeth Moss And Ted Danson Cast In ‘The One I Love’

This Could Be Sweet
19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Red Carpet

Okay, so this is fun news. As y’all know, Mad Men is getting ready to come back to AMC for its highly-anticipated sixth season, and I am crazy excited. I’m still making my way through all the past seasons on Netflix, but, like many others, I’ve fallen in love with the show and… well, we all have our favorites. Elisabeth Moss AKA Peggy is my absolute favorite… like in that creepy way where I kinda/definitely know exactly what I’d say to her if I ever saw her on the street, lol. So I was really excited to hear that she’s been cast alongside Ted Danson (another one of my faves) in a new movie. Click inside to learn more!

Additionally, another Downton Abbey castmember is leaving the show … you can find out which castmember will NOT be returning to Downton Abbey when the 4th season of the show returns later this year.
