Pete Campbell's hair on Mad Men may have evolved quite a lot over the show's run—what started off as a full head of hair is now thinning and balding in a hilarious fashion—but let's all take a moment to just be thankful he hasn't grown mutton chops yet. 

How do we know this? For his role as Mr. Darcy in the Guthrie Theater's production of Pride and PrejudiceVincent Karthieser has been donning some mutton-chops-on-steriods as of late—and judging by those pictures up there, it's just too weird a sight. The play opened earlier this month in Minneapolis, and will conclude on August 31, in case you're dying (morbid curiosity, we hope) to see those things in person. At least the production is getting good reviews.

Just please, England, do not recreate a Vincent Karthieser-version of that totally creepy statue of Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy that was chilling in Hyde Park last week. We don't need the nightmares.

We still haven't figured out why this needed to exist.
