Mad Men/90210 Match-Up

don-draperdylan-mckay

In honor of Sunday night’s Mad Men finale (no spoilers, I promise), I’d like to revisit the genius Flavorwire article that matched Mad Men characters to their Beverly Hills, 90210 equivalents.  The similarities are downright uncanny.  Moral of the story = there are no original ideas left in Hollywood.

And so I am going to write an HBO drama about 42nd Street in the 1920s.  It will explore the culture of Broadway and prostitution in the early 20th century, while drawing emotional parallels with the Saturday morning cartoon Care Bears.  Angelina Jolie will play the role of Tenderheart Bear, the red light madame with a heart of gold.  Somebody get me an agent.

More of my favorite Mad Men/90210 match-ups below, but you have to check out the full article for the rest!

    1. Right?! Just when you think you’ve reached the end of the internet, it goes and serves up a little piece of Dylan McKay manna from heaven and renews your faith in the merit of staying up all night surfing the web. Glad you liked it!
