Elisabeth Moss (known to today’s audiences as Peggy on Mad Men but remembered fondly by me for her role as Zoe Bartlett on The West Wing) and Fred Armisen (the man behind SNL‘s Obama) recently announced their engagement.
I’m trying to imagine an odder or more unexpected couple and not really succeeding. I kind of always thought Armisen was gay, and secretly wished that Moss would marry Dule Hill (who played Charlie, her boyfriend on The West Wing).
In any case, it’s happy news for the couple on every front as they prepare for their wedding, she heads to the SAG awards this Sunday as a nominee and he gears up for at least 4 more years of his now trademark SNL impression of the newly inaugurated President.
