Mel Gibson Not Starring on “Mad Men”

RumorFix thought something smelled fishy about Liz Smith's Season 5 Mad Men rumor.

Smith's claim that Mel Gibson is close to landing a role on the popular television drama is about as realistic as Gibson starring in a Spike Lee movie.

Other than Jodie Foster and Whoopi Goldberg, it appears the industry wants nothing to do with Gibson, and that includes the Mad Men crew. That means rumors of Mel taking on Don Draper in a dramatic Season 5 story arc are false.

A source told Entertainment Weekly that Gibson, and Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner (who also happens to be Jewish) "have never met.”
