When she’s not playing the always hot, but ever-so-cold wife of Don Draper on AMC’s superb series Mad Men, actress January Jones is making movies. And lately, she’s a hot commodity. In late-January, she will begin shooting on Unknown White Male, starring alongside Liam Neeson and Diane Kruger. Neeson plays a man who awakens from a coma, only to find that his identity has been stolen.

After that, she’ll be starring alongside Nicolas Cage in the vigilante thriller The Hungry Rabbit Jumps. The film centers on a man (Cage) who, after a crime is perpetrated on his wife, gets more than he bargained for when he enlists a vigilante group to help him settle the score. Jones will play the wife. But as producer James Stern tells The Hollywood Reporter, it’s not a reactionary role, but a very active one. He says that it’s a “very meaty role,” which when combined with the “crime perpetrated on his wife” part of the synopsis, takes on a very inappropriate meaning. At least, that’s how it plays out in my childish mind.

The project goes into production early next year. You can see more of Ms. Jones on the cover of this month’s GQ Magazine.
