IT'S TEMPTING to suggest Jon Hamm may already have done what he most needed to do to move on from Don Draper, a character whose passage through the '60s may not have been conducive to living into his 60s. But I've never confused Hamm with Draper and when the "Mad Men" star met with reporters in January to talk about the AMC drama's final seven episodes, we didn't know he'd be checking into a rehab facility the following month for treatment of...

NORTHEAST-born and -bred Val Keil is Playboy 's Miss August. In the July/August issue of the lad mag, Keil poses in old-timey cinematic shots that recall the Golden Age of Hollywood ( sans Hays Code restrictions, of course). "I don't think there's been a centerfold in black-and-white in a long time, so I'm honored to have that," Keil told me, in an unmistakable Philly accent. "It makes me look so glamorous!" Keil, a 2009 graduate of MaST Community Charter School, decided to send her pictures to Playboy on a whim, telling herself she would be a Playmate of the Month or nothing at all. Playboy flew her out to LA, and weeks later she got a call from the mag saying that Hugh Hefner liked her pictures and he wanted her for the August centerfold.

JENNIFER WESTFELDT became an indie film darling 11 years ago when she co-wrote and co-starred in "Kissing Jessica Stein. " Numerous TV roles followed along with time as tabloid fodder as the longtime girlfriend of Jon Hamm ("Mad Men"). Now Westfeldt is back in movies with a few more hyphens. She took on the daunting task of writing, directing, producing and starring in "Friends with Kids," a script she wrote when she found her relationships with her married friends changing as children entered the picture.

NEW YORK - NBC says Liz Lemon, the harried heroine of 30 Rock , will soon be getting married. Fans of 30 Rock might have reasonably assumed that Lemon, played by Tina Fey, would ride out the series' seventh and final season as a perennial bachelorette unlucky in love. But Fey, who is also the creator and producer of the NBC comedy, clearly thought otherwise. The network said Thursday the perennial bridesmaid will wed on the 30 Rock episode that airs Nov. 29. "But not in a creepy way that perpetuates the idea that brides are virgins and women are property," according to the NBC announcement.

Five things you can do in the five days until "Mad Men" Season 5 begins: Plan your wardrobe. Janie Bryant, the show's celebrated costume designer, lent her name and expertise to a "Mad Men" capsule collection at Banana Republic that's more inspired-by than ripped-from the '60s (and a good thing, too, since Americans on average were thinner then). Think cigarette pants, floral prints and a "Betty dress" for women; fedoras and chino suits for men. All at 2012 prices, of course.

"MILLION DOLLAR ARM" is a movie about pitching, but the baseball kind. Its putative hero is a sports agent, and its plot is about a marketing ploy. And although there've been good movies about sports agents before, "Million Dollar Arm" feels like "Jerry Maguire" by way of Jay Mohr's character. Jon Hamm plays JB Bernstein, an L.A. swell who drives a Porsche and lives on a property big enough to accommodate a guesthouse, where he stores Lake Bell, in case he runs short on models.

PAUL F. TOMPKINS doesn't like performing in comedy clubs, which should make his job tough considering that he's a comedian. His reasons are pragmatic. "Comedy clubs aren't really in the comedy business," Tompkins said from his home in Los Angeles. "They're in the bar-and-restaurant business. " He wants to put on a show; they want to sell overpriced, watered-down drinks and chicken wings. How can he form a connection with his audience if they have got a waitress asking if they want another lager before the end of the set?

Jon Hamm: What now? Will the public still love Jon Hamm once Mad Men , which kicks off its final episodes April 5, is finally over? Will we still respect him? These questions are keeping the actor up at night. "The one constant thing I've had in my career is now removed," Hamm, 44, who has played Don Draper for seven seasons, tells GQ. "And that's an eye-opener. " Will Hamm cease to exist in a post-Don Draper world? "Are people still going to take me seriously?"

With a growing body of innovative original productions, from House of Cards and Lilyhammer to Orange Is the New Black and Marco Polo , Netflix has proven it deserves a place in the vanguard of TV programming. Yet the streaming site's most buzzed-about offering this month isn't one of its own shows. It's the British import Black Mirror , a sci-fi anthology series whose six one-hour episodes have driven critics and sci-fi geeks to distraction with passionate praise.

One of the giants of 20th-century European literature, Russian novelist Mikhail Bulgakov (1891-1940) achieved in his stories an intoxicating blend of comedy, drama, and social satire. His particular brand of magic realism also featured blistering critiques of the Soviet political system, making much of his work unpublishable during his lifetime. His masterpiece, The Master and Margarita , was written in the 1920s, but not published until 1967. Bulgakov, who was a physician, had more luck during his lifetime with a series of autobiographical short stories he published in medical journals during the 1920s, surreal yarns about a know-nothing youngster fresh out of medical school stuck in the middle of nowhere who is responsible for the health of an entire town.
