Ben Benson was one of the most talked about characters of "Mad Men" Season 6. Played by James Wolk, the character got instant attention, without smoking, killing anyone or hitting someone. The character of Ben Benson wore the cloak of mystery and was at the right place at the right time, holding two coffee cups -- one of the cups for his senior. Peter Campbell exposed Ben as a fraud.
It is not yet confirmed whether Ben will return for final season. However, Wolk is interested in reprising his role in "Mad Men." "If they want me (back on "Mad Men"), we can certainly try to make something happen," said the actor, as quoted by TODAY.com. "It's in their hands. But I loved working on ("Mad Men") and I'd love to be back there."
Wolk said to TODAY.com: "I've been a fan of that show, so to come in and get a role like that really felt like a gift. It was just a great experience."
Just before the airing of the final episode of "Mad Men," Wolk had refused to reveal any spoiler about the final episode. At the time, he had said to Huffington Post, "I wanna keep my job on that show! I value my job on that show."
The statement had indicated that his character would be returning for the final season. Wolk, 28, is currently starring in CBS's one-camera comedy, "The Crazy Ones."
As reported earlier, the season 7 of "Mad Men" is the final season. Like "Breaking Bad," the final season will be aired in two instalments. The first instalment of seven episodes is scheduled to air in 2014, while the second instalment with seven episodes is scheduled to air in 2015.
The filming has begun on the final season. The media buzz is that Jon Hamm, who plays the principal character of Don Draper, is likely to go commando, again. E! Online had spotted Hamm walking around the set of "Mad Men" in Los Angeles. The actor, 42, "opted to skip his underwear for this particular wardrobe choice and scene," according to E! Online's report.
