‘Mad Men’ Secretary Takes It Off For Playboy

Crista Flanagan, who plays Sterling-Cooper office girl Lois Sadler in AMC’s ‘Mad Men,’ is the cover model for the August issue of Playboy. Flanagan’s shoot re-creates classic 60s-era poses from the magazine’s history.

The idea of playing the pin-up represented a change of pace for Flanagan, who describes herself as a character actress. She told the NY Daily News:

The parts I play, I’m usually a crazy heroin addict or a lunch lady. Nobody’s ever asked me to take off my clothes, or even kiss somebody. I guess I haven’t been seen as a sexy person, and sometimes not even as an attractive person.

Hopefully there will be more of this sort of thing. Retro pin-ups is where Playboy shines brightest. And one shoot with Joan Holloway could revitalize the brand!
