Notable TV roles: Bob Benson, Mad Men (AMC); Doug Hammond, Political Animals (USA); Robert Allen, Lone Star (FOX); Grant, Happy Endings (ABC)

He’s been on every Mad Men fan’s radar since the season six premiere, when the mystery of The Talented Bob Benson began this past spring, and it’s about time. James Wolk is a beast, but he’s been struggling since FOX yanked his much ballyhooed series after just two episodes. If there’s one reason to look forward to CBS’ upcoming sitcom The Crazy Ones, it’s for the possibility that Wolk’s star will continue its rise—though we hope that doesn’t mean we’ve seen the last of Bob at Sterling Cooper & Partners.
