Allegra Riggio, Jared Harris
Mad Men alum Jared Harris is a married man.
Harris, who played Lane Pryce on the AMC hit for three seasons, wed his longtime girlfriend, Allegra Riggio, in Miami on Saturday, Us Weekly reports.

Grab your fedora and pour yourself an Old Fashioned — Mad Men is back.
After weeks of speculation over the meaning of teaser trailers and (possibly) Easter egg-filled posters, the AMC drama launches its sixth — and likely penultimate — season with a two-hour premiere (Sunday, 9/8c). Season 5 ended with Don (Jon Hamm) giving in to the acting desires of his new bride Megan (Jessica Paré) and helping her get a part in one of the agency's commercials. As Don literally and figuratively left Megan behind at the soundstage to seek solace in a whiskey glass, he was approached by a woman at the bar who asked, "Are you alone?"
Exclusive Mad Men Season 6 trailer: "The next thing will be better"
While we've pondered Don's response to that query in the intervening months, we've also crafted a few more burning questions about what might be ahead for the men and women of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce (and Peggy!) this season. After the jump, creator Matthew Weiner and the cast give us their best answers...
Pour yourself an Old Fashioned: Don Draper is back. AMC is set to announce this morning that Mad Men will return for its sixth season on Sunday, April 7 at 9/8c with a two-hour season premiere. The show will then move to its regular time, 10/9c, the following week.
Creator Matthew Weiner confirms to TV Guide Magazine that the show (last seen in 1967) will make another jump in time, putting Mad Men straight in the middle of the tumultuous late 1960s. The time jump "at this point has been such a great story engine for the show," he says. "I love writing that first episode as if the audience knows everything that has happened, and watching them piece it in their head. It's an elliptical experience."

In the third part of our farewell to Fringe, producers and cast discuss the most polarizing story line of the series: The Season 3 cliff-hanger featured a scene in which Peter Bishop, who we had come to know and love over three seasons, mysteriously vanished into thin air. The Observers then explained that he had, in fact, never existed. (Come again?) This controversial creative move ended a season that included Fringe's foreboding move to the Friday "death slot." Still, the show soldiered on for another two seasons, much to the credit of its passionate fan base...
Jonny Lee Miller, Janet Montgomery
Janet Montgomery for Irene Adler!
That was our first reaction upon hearing of Made in Jersey's quick demise. But Irene Adler isn't the only Sherlock Holmes character we'd love to see pop up on CBS' Elementary, in which Jonny Lee Miller stars as the titular sleuth, now a recovering addict and consultant for the NYPD whose Watson (Lucy Liu) is Sherlock's "sober companion."
Claire Danes, Jim Parsons
Will Mad Men become the first drama to five-peat? Can anyone beat Bryan Cranston and Claire Danes? We'll find out Sunday at the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards. But for now, let's make our best educated guesses at who will walk away with the big prizes. Check out the list of nominees, make your picks and see if they match up with ours.
All your favorites may be returning for the sixth season of Mad Men.
Elisabeth Moss, January Jones and Vincent Kartheiser are reportedly finalizing two-year deals that would see them continue with the series into Season 7, Deadline reports.
Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss: I "know certain things" about Peggy's future
The fate of Moss' character...
Although we cheered for Mad Men's Peggy Olsen (Elisabeth Moss) when she left Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce in her rearview in the waning episodes of Season 5, we soon were left with a scary thought: Could we never see Peggy again?
Have Mad Men fans seen the last of Elisabeth Moss' Peggy?
Things only got worse when cast member Jared Harris — who definitely won't be back (RIP, Lane!) — hinted that Moss had also said her goodbyes. But fear not: Moss says she'll be back, and she even knows a few pieces of Peggy's story. "I do know certain things about what's going to happen," Moss tells TVGuide.com. "I think that she's forever linked to Don in some way. Obviously, it's Don's show, but they're going to have some interaction."
Read on to get Moss' thoughts on Peggy's empowering journey this season, how Don (Jon Hamm) let Peggy down this year, and how Moss approached filming some of those tough final scenes. Plus: Where the heck did Peggy's boyfriend Abe go?
If you're still reeling from Lane's suicide on the penultimate episode of Mad Men's fifth season, don't worry: The actors are too.
Mad Men's Jared Harris discuss Lane's big twist
"It was devastating," Vincent Kartheiser tells TVGuide.com. "There were tears and sadness. But I'm happy that Jared [Harris] had a nice big ending and something that will impact the characters hopefully for the next two seasons. His character will kind of remain with the show even though he won't be there alive."
Just how much impact will the ghost of Lane have on Mad Men's finale, interestingly titled "The Phantom"? In our Q&A, Kartheiser tackles that question and also looks back at a number of questionable decisions (Joan! Rory Gilmore!) his character Pete Campbell made this season. Plus: Kartheiser tells us why Pete will never be fully content....
It's no shocker that Jared Harris isn't coming back to Mad Men next season. (RIP, Lane!) However, Harris set the Internet abuzz Tuesday after he implied that Elisabeth Moss has left the AMC drama as well.
When asked by The Daily if the cast threw him a going-away party, Harris said no. But then he likened his nondescript goodbye to that of several other regular cast members who have left the series permanently. In that list of names, Harris mentioned Moss, whose character was...
