Jared Harris Receives Promotion on Mad Men

at . Comments

When the third season of Mad Men concluded, Don Draper and company had formed a new ad agency called Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce.

Therefore, this casting tidbit comes as no surprise: Jared Harris, who plays Lane Pryce on the AMC drama, has been elevated to series regular. Expect to see a lot more of him on season four.

Lane Pryce Picture

Pryce entered the Mad Men picture as Sterling Cooper’s new financial officer, but it didn't take long to see that he was frustrated by his role of a minion in the grand scheme of UK parent company Putnam, Powell, and Low.

In the incredible finale, Lane became a founding partner in the aforementioned firm, alongside Don, Bert Cooper, and Roger Sterling.

Mad Men Quotes

It's been a pleasure working with you all. I wish you the best of luck.


Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.
