Is there anything Ken Cosgrove can’t do? Since the earliest seasons of “Mad Men,” we’ve known that this executive, played by Aaron Staton, is a rising star in the advertising industry and an accomplished author of fiction who’s had work published in The Atlantic Monthly. But Sunday’s episode of the AMC period drama revealed that Cosgrove, when filled up with something nice by a mysterious doctor who visits his office, is a pretty impressive dancer, too, and capable of performing an elaborate and angry tap dance for his colleague Don Draper (Jon Hamm) while repeating his now popular credo, “It’s my job.”
While those words may be the work of Matthew Weiner and Jason Grote, who wrote this “Mad Men” episode — titled “The Crash” — those fancy moves are the work of Mr. Staton, who was rewarded overnight with a wealth of screen grabs, GIFs and more, preserving this moment in digital amber online. On Monday Mr. Staton spoke by telephone to discuss his moment in the spotlight.
