As Mad Men's final episodes approach, it's natural to wonder where the show's performers might show up next. Elisabeth Moss is currently on Broadway, January Jones is on The Last Man on Earth, and John Slattery apparently could have been on Empire. Recall that Danny Strong, Empire's co-creator and executive producer, plays Roger Sterling's cousin-in-law Danny Siegel on Mad Men. Slattery tells The Daily Beast, "[Strong] actually asked me if I wanted to be on Empire, and I think I let that ship sail. I don't know who I would've played … some white dude." Please, Lord, don't let it be too late. We would all love to see John Slattery play some white dude on Empire.
