Yes, That Was Mr. Belding and Rory From Gilmore Girls on Last Night’s Mad Men

Mad Men fans were probably surprised to see not one but two stars from past teen TV shows pop up for cameos during last night’s episode, Season 5, Episode 8: “Lady Lazarus.”

The biggest cameo was made by Alexis Bledel (of Gilmore Girls fame) who played Pete Campbell’s newest conquest, Beth. Even more surprising: Rory from Gilmore Girls is now officially old enough to play a mom. Some fans were confused by the show’s choice of Bledel and felt that she was too young for the role. However, doe-eyed Alexis is 30-years-old, making her the perfect wife/mom age in the Mad Men world. (Do you feel old now? We know we do!)

The other big cameo was by Dennis Haskins, aka Mr. Belding from Saved by the Bell. Dennis played the nameless Cool Whip executive who met with Don, Peggy, and Ken in the test kitchen during the end of the episode. It was a small part, but there is no way that any ‘90s kid would miss a Belding sighting. And, in case you were wondering, Dennis confirmed the cameo on his Twitter, which is appropriately called @MrBelding.
