Mad Men/90210 Match-Up


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 after the jump!
