January Jones, Jon Hamm, Elisabeth Moss, But Best Of All, John Slattery, Before They Were On Mad Men

by Chiara Atik · September 27, 2010

This post came about because we found ourselves wondering what John Slatterly looked like before his gray hair. The answer? Different! But so did all the show's other stars, except for maybe the eternally youthful Jon Hamm. Can you tell who's who?-

Elisabeth Moss

This screenshot is from 1995's "Escape To Witch Mountain", and I know this because in 1995 I watched that very film on the Disney Channel, and in 2010 I watched Mad Men, and until this very second never put the two together.

Christina Hendricks

Christina Hendricks looks pretty much the same, though the blond guy in front is a little distracting, so it's hard to be sure.

Kiernan Shipka

Look at tiny little Sally! Before her big break on Mad Men, she starred on Trix commercials.

Well, shocking, January Jones was really, really pretty when she was 17. Yearbook picture from Roosevelt High School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Vincent Kartheiser

Holy Pete Campbell--look at this guy! Before Mad Men, Vincent was obviously into the "Shawn Hunter" look of the early 90s.
