The cast of “Mad Men” hosted the Rape Treatment Center’s annual brunch at Ron Burkle’s home in Beverly Hills on Sunday.
J.K. Simmons made light of the fact that he was second choice to be master of ceremonies.

Simmons also ribbed the thesps of “Mad Men.”
“Today it is my privilege to introduce them, the men and women who are the spectacular cast of — it says here — ‘the best drama series on television.’ We’ll call it a tie,” said “The Closer” thesp.
At the end of the event, John Slattery announced the cast would take pictures with anyone who wanted.
“I’m told that the going rate is a thousand dollars. But I’ll remind you that we just won the Emmy for fourth time in a row,” he joked.
