Fancy A Walk-On Part In MAD MEN?

By on 13 August, 2010

Execs behind U.S TV hit ‘Mad Men‘ are auctioning off a walk-on part on their Golden Globe award-winning drama, in aid of a cancer charity

The show, about life in the advertising world in 1960s New York, regularly features its leading actors, including Jon Hamm and John Slattery, puffing away on cigarettes and auction organisers are putting a twist on this aspect of the programme – by donating a portion of the profits to the Lung Cancer Program at California’s City of Hope.

Sandra Stern, chief operating officer at the Lionsgate production firm, says:

“The smoking depicted in Mad Men was ubiquitous in the ’60s world of Madison Avenue advertising and is a vivid reminder of how far we’ve progressed in our attitudes toward smoking since then.”

Wardrobe pieces worn by Christina Hendricks and January Jones‘ characters are also being sold off in the 10-day auction on website, as well as ’60s-style furniture and other props from the hit show, Reuters reports.

The sale ends on 22 August 2010, so makre sure you grab a bargain quick!
