Fans launched a Change.org petition begging producers to cast Matt Bomer as kinky-yet-sensitive billionaire Christian Grey and Alexis Bledel as Anastasia Steele.

Vincent Kartheiser Practiced Proposing to Alexis Bledel with Mad Men Costars

Originally posted 03/21/2013 03:30PM

Like any good actor, Vincent Kartheiser knows the importance of the rehearsal process.

Before popping the question to girlfriend Alexis Bledel, the Mad Men actor (who plays Pete Campbell) jokingly practiced his proposal on set with costars Elisabeth Moss and Jessica Paré.

"It was purely comedic but he was giving [Elisabeth] and I a facetious rendition of his planned proposal," Paré told PEOPLE at the season 6 premiere of the hit AMC show Wednesday night. "We were like, 'Great! Lets do this one without cursing and without yelling!' "

All joking aside, Kartheiser's costars could not be happier to hear the news of the engagement to Bledel, who plays Beth Dawes on series, which returns to AMC April 7 (9 p.m. ET).

NEW SHOWSWatch It: Heroes (NBC, 8 p.m. ET) If you missed Monday night's premiere, then make a super effort to see this second-night repeat of one of the season's most exciting new shows (Heroes regularly airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET). A sprawling, mysterious science-fiction adventure, Heroes tracks the emerging destinies of a group of deceptively regular-looking mutants as they start to realize and test their strange powers. It's something like X-Men, but without the costume fetish or the romanticized self-anguish. We have a high school cheerleader who methodically breaks and burns her body because she knows it will miraculously heal. A nerd in Tokyo figures out how to teleport himself, another guy has an irrepressible urge to fly – again, psychologists, you may find this richly suggestive – and a single mother sees her reflected image not quite in sync with her movements. There's so much going on, the story at this point is barely coherent, but it also feels tantalizingly, implicitly whole. If all the pieces don't fit initially, they may just mutate until they do.
