I knew that Elisabeth Moss who plays Peggy Olson on Mad Men used to play Zoey Bartlet on The West Wing, but seeing her in an episode this morning was bizarre. She's just so thoroughly Peggy in my mind that any other role is going to seem like Peggy pretending to be someone else.

I have a similar ongoing problem with Malcolm McDowell. He's a great actor, but as soon as I hear even a hint of little Alex from A Clockwork Orange in his voice, it's all over.
