"He was not ugly," Kemper, 35, told reporters of Hamm at the Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday. "He was a wonderful teacher."

WATCH: Bradley Cooper Embraces the Leotard Look in Official Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp Trailer

Originally posted 07/02/2015 03:30PM

Here's something to chat about over hot dogs and fireworks this holiday weekend – the official trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is here, and it's a feast of nostalgic (and not-so-clean) fun.

The cast alone is worth celebrating. In addition to Wet Hot's original players (Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, Molly Shannon, Elizabeth Banks, and director David Wain in an on-camera role), newcomers Kristen Wiig, Jordan Peele, H. Jon Benjamin, Jason Schwartzman, John Slattery, Michael Cera, "Weird Al" Yankovic and Jon Hamm signed on for the prequel sequel, upping the wackiness exponentially.

Among other things, the Netflix original series promises the characters from the 2001 film are younger and hotter (or, you know, 14 years older and often wearing terrible wigs). Here are some of the highlights of the nutty trailer:

How Elisabeth Moss' Cats Nearly Ruined the Mad Men Finale (VIDEO)

Originally posted 06/05/2015 11:00AM

It was Don Draper's final talk with Peggy Olson after seven seasons of Mad Men. And Peggy was … well, a bit distracted.

Elisabeth Moss was on the other end of line when Jon Hamm filmed their critical phone-call scene for last month's finale. But since he was the only one on camera, she was much more relaxed – maybe too relaxed.

"I was, like, in my pajamas with coffee," the actress, 32, revealed Thursday on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Mad Men Did Not Pay to Use Iconic Coca-Cola Ad in Series Finale

Originally posted 05/19/2015 02:00PM

While it may be one of the most famous ads in television history, Mad Men didn't shell out a dime to use the iconic Coca-Cola spot in the series finale of the AMC show.

When asked if the network paid to use the original ad in the highly anticipated final episode, a spokesperson for the company confirmed to PEOPLE, "No money exchanged hands."

But just because Coca-Cola played a big part in the finale doesn't mean the company knew ahead of time how Don Draper would say goodbye.

Mad Men Finale Recap: Acclaimed Drama Comes to a Quiet Close

"You only like the beginnings of things," someone once told Don Draper (Jon Hamm). Well, Don isn't the only one. As viewers, we love the beginnings of things: Remember the excitement of discovering this little 1960s drama eight years ago on some channel called AMC? The beginnings are always so full of possibility. Maybe that’s why, for all of our wild theories about what will happen, the endings never satisfy us.

As I wrote last week, it's often hard to tell the difference between endings and beginnings on Mad Men. Don Draper keeps starting over, only to find himself right back where he started. This show is a time machine, going backward and forward, always taking us back to the same place. "You can put this behind you," Don tells Anna's (Melinda Page Hamilton) niece, Stephanie (Caity Lotz). "It's easier if you move forward." But moving forward is moving backward. Progress doesn't exist.

All good things must come to an end – and that cliché extends to great things like Mad Men.

"The last day of shooting was so sad," costume designer Janie Bryant tells PEOPLE of being on set for the last day of filming the AMC drama's seventhand final – season. "The whole entire cast showed up on set. And, with each actor wrapping their last scene, everyone was just crying like crazy."

Mad Men went full '70s with its trailer for Sunday's series finale – and we're digging it.

The preview, set to Paul Anka's mellow "Times of Your Life," takes Don Draper (Jon Hamm) on a trip down memory lane, focusing mostly the women in his life: daughter Sally (Kiernan Shipka), ex-wives Betty (January Jones) and Megan (Jessica Paré), and colleagues Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) and Joan (Christina Hendricks).
