When 'Mad Men's' Joan Holloway meets the modern office

Martinis in the breakroom and smoking at your desk are no longer features of the modern workplace, but there is one old holdover, as Christina Hendricks coyly points out in a new "Funny or Die" video.

The actress slips into the form-fitting dresses of her '60s-era character, Joan Holloway, to imagine what it would be like if Joan had to navigate today's typical office.

Fallon gets Nina Dobrev to play beer pong, Megan Fox Pictionary

It's the boyish grin, isn't it?

That must be what Jimmy Fallon deploys to get celebrities to play whatever game he comes up with during their time on "The Tonight Show," from becoming a human hamster wheel to Face Balls to Box of Lies.

Ricky Gervais' David Brent is getting his own movie

Kaley Cuoco talks marriage, 'Big Bang Theory' season 8

Don't mistake Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting holding up production on "The Big Bang Theory" as a desire to be off the show.

To the contrary, the 28-year-old actress tells Women's Health magazine in its September issue that she'd be just fine playing a "girl-next-door" like "BBT's" Penny for as long as possible. (At least, as long as she's getting good pay - or so it would seem.)

No one, not even Franco, can make Colbert break character

On "The Colbert Report," wily James Franco tried to catch Colbert out of character.
