Hoo boy. Sometimes I forget about the Internet.
What I tweeted:
“I have no idea if there will be a season 5 of MM. I am operating under the assumption that there won’t be, until I hear otherwise.”
What I meant:
I am aware that all parties involved are currently negotiating the next season of Mad Men and beyond. Nothing official has been stated yet as far as a pickup, although it is a safe bet — very safe bet — that the show will return in its usual fashion.
That being said, as an actor who used to be unemployed a lot, and as a father of two, I choose to operate under certain pretenses, until I hear otherwise. Meaning: until I get my official pickup, I am squirreling away money and seeing a shrink to help me cope with being in this business. I will return to calm when we get the official word.
In the future, I will try to remain a bit more clear on statements like this. I did not intend to start the shit storm I’ve clearly started, and I did not intend to ruin anyone’s day, fans and coworkers alike.
That is all. Retreating to my hole now. Goodbye.
