At the end of the Harry Potter films, we got to see Daniel Radcliffe happily grown up with a family of his own. In the new mini-series, A Young Doctor's Notebook, Radcliffe faces his less congenial grown-up self head on in the form of Jon Hamm.

"I am the envy of every woman ever," Radcliffe, 23, told the Sun of playing a med school grad who's sent to run a hospital in an isolated Russian village in 1917 opposite the 42-year-old Mad Men star.

Only the relationship between the younger and older doctor isn't exactly friendly, and at one point the pair stare angrily at each other from opposite ends of a metal bath tub.

PEOPLE's TV Critic: James Gandolfini Was a True Television Giant | James Gandolfini

James Gandolfini Was True Television Giant: PEOPLE's TV Critic

Originally posted 06/20/2013 09:40AM

In a nutshell: James Gandolfini gave one of the greatest performances in one of the greatest roles in one of the greatest series at the dawn of what is now regarded as television's new golden age.

In fact, you could probably remove those qualifying “one of"s and still find heads nodding in agreement among critics, viewers and whatever poor thugs are left hanging around the Bada Bing club, nursing their beers and watching the dancers.

Gandolfini, who died at age 51 in Rome on Wednesday, was known throughout the world for his six seasons on The Sopranos (1999-2007), the classic HBO drama about a mob boss living in suburban New Jersey with his wife, two kids and some occasional, possibly symbolic ducks in the backyard.

Mobster and "waste management" executive Tony Soprano, as brilliantly conceived by series creator David Chase, was perhaps meant to put the kibosh on the romanticized Corleones of The Godfather, ruthless killers who nonetheless had the smooth beauty of movie stars, eyes full of regret and an air of tragic inevitability.

Review: Mad Men Enters Middle Age for Season 6 | Jessica Pare, Jon Hamm

Mad Men Enters Middle Age with Season 6 Premiere

At some point ad executive Don Draper (Jon Hamm) is going to grow sideburns or a Fu Manchu mustache. He'll buy his first pair of bell-bottoms, possibly a paisley pair.

Either that, or I'm going to throw a can of Fresca at the TV.

As Mad Men starts its sixth and next-to-last season (AMC, Sunday, April 7, 9 p.m. ET/PT), writer-creator Matthew Weiner has advanced the show far enough into the '60s that its fundamental philosophical question begins to generates its own oppressive suspense: How can Don, a man who built a career surfing the pop zeitgeist, be so disconnected from – even indifferent to – his own times? How can he sell so much happiness and never purchase any for himself?

The two-hour premiere finds middle-aged Don in paradise, lying on the beach at a Hawaiian resort beside his younger wife, Megan (Jessica Paré), who has the Day-Glo zest of a Peter Max print. He's reading Dante's Inferno.

Mad Men-Inspired Recipes Straight from Jon Hamm's Former Workplace

Pop quiz, Mad Men fans: What does popular L.A. restaurant Border Grill have to do with the hit series?

Turns out there are a few connections. The series films across the street from Border Grill's downtown Los Angeles location. Actor Ben Feldman, who plays opinionated copywriter Michael Ginsberg on the show, is chef Susan Feniger's nephew. And the show's breakout star Jon Hamm used to work for years for Feniger and her business partner, chef Mary Sue Milliken, as a waiter.

That, of course, makes Feniger and Milliken the perfect chefs to recommend some culinary treats to serve at your Mad Men viewing party Sunday night.

Feniger suggests a ceviche dish inspired by her nephew's favorite on the Border Grill menu.

"Ben is a total foodie and because I'm the good Jewish aunt, I always feed him way too much,” she tells PEOPLE. "Although the ceviche has tons of strong flavors, it's light and really satisfying."

Adds the chef, "It's also the perfect dish to have with a martini, and what is more Mad Men than a martini?"

Milliken recommends treating your guests to a yummy torta de tres leches.

"When Jon worked at the Border Grill in the late '90s long before he became Don Draper, he ate platefuls of our torta de tres leches," Milliken says. "It also had a '60s N.Y.C. look and feel to it and is always a crowd pleaser."

Read on to create the perfect full meal to dine like a Mad Men character:

Most of the country may be cooling off as fall creeps towards winter, but the sun is shining in Hawaii!

And that's where Jon Hamm and his Mad Men wife, beauty Jessica Paré, were filming scenes Wednesday for the season 6 premiere of AMC's hit show.

Leaving his buttoned-up business attire on the mainland (but without a hair out of place), Hamm, 41, disrobed and revealed a pair of colorful trunks – and a tan line.

Emmy Nominations: PEOPLE TV Critic's Take

Originally posted 09/22/2012 06:40PM

If you ask why I am crying, it's because Madeleine Stowe, star of ABC's Revenge, is not among the Emmy nominees. In fact, I am crying just as she would: My eyes are ringed with big, ready-to-drop tears of wrath and sorrow.

Otherwise, the latest batch of nominees is pretty satisfying.

It's great to see Lena Dunham and her fantastic HBO comedy Girls up for best actress and show. (But nothing for the supporting cast?) Dunham, who plays a smart, funny, self-absorbed young writer, is running against her comic antithesis: Zooey Deschanel of FOX's New Girl, on which she plays (and plays very well) a cupcake.

Emmy Nominees on Facebook: Who Has the Most Likes?

Only the accountants at Ernst & Young – the official vote-counters for the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences – know who will take home an Emmy during Sunday's ceremony.

Until then it's anyone's guess. But we can tell you which Emmy nominees are getting the most buzz among 170.89 million Facebook users in the U.S.

Based on the number of "Likes" and the number of mentions on the social networking site, it seems Sofia Vergara is a fan favorite. The Modern Family star leads over Kristen Wiig, Mayim Bialik, Julie Bowen, Merritt Wever and Kathryn Joosten for the supporting comedy actress category.

Emmy Nominations: Mad Men, American Horror Story Lead the Race, with 17

Originally posted 07/19/2012 09:20AM

The men are still mad, breaking is still bad – and announcer Jimmy Kimmel isn't ashamed to let you see him in his pajamas. So it went as the 64th annual Primetime Emmy nominations were revealed early Thursday morning.

When the dust settled, not only was Kimmel himself nominated for hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live, but Mad Men and American Horror Story led the pack – with 17 nominations each.

The race is also on between top dramatic series lead actor contenders Jon Hamm, for Mad Men, and Bryan Cranston, for Breaking Bad – while both of their shows are also in the running for best dramatic series, along with Boardwalk Empire, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and Homeland.

The other actor nominees are Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey); Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire); Michael C. Hall (Dexter); and Damian Lewis (Homeland).
