Mad Men actor Rich Sommer, he plays media guy Harry Crane, is gearing up for the new season of the show and he is saying it is unbelievable. Don’t expect him to give away any secrets though, nope he is just simply saying he is ready for the new season to begin.

In terms of a biography on Rich well here is what we know. He was born in Toldedo, Ohio but raised in Stillwater, Minnesota. Sommer attended college in Minnesota where he stuided improv. Rich has been married to Virginia Donohoe for about five years. The couple has one daughter and a son that is arriving this fall.

He has had a successful acting career for years now having appeared in a number of commercials like Nextel, Sprint and Bud Light. In terms of film roles he is best known for the role of Doug in The Devil Wears Prada, he was Anne Hathaway’s friend. Rich has also guest starred on TV shows like Law & Order and The Office.

He is clearly best known for his role on the AMC show Mad Men and Rich Sommer is just fine with that. Rich actually wishes the shows seasons were longer than just 13 episodes. The 60’s era show about the advertising world of Madison Avenue is something Sommer hopes goes on for a long time, maybe into the 1970’s era.

I for one am a big fan of Sommer and his character of Harry. I think he adds so much to the show that is all about a man’s world. That is just what I think though I want to know your thoughts on Rich and the show too.
