Did You Know That Stan from "Mad Men" Was a '90s Teen Heartthrob?

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | April 30, 2013 | Comments ()


His name is Jay R. Ferguson. He was in “The Outsiders,” a TV show based on the Brat Pack movie.


He was also a regular in the cast of Burt Reynolds’ Arkansas-set sitcom, “Evening Shade.”

Those roles earned him his way into Teen magazines.




And now, of course, he’s Stan Rizzo, the scene-stealing comic relief on “Mad Men.”

    He also played the man who killed Detective Becket's Mom on "Castle". As well as the male lead on the short lived Science Fiction TV show "Surface".

    Holy shit, he was that guy? I didn't recognize him.

  • Dan

    Yup. :) He did a great job too.

  • mairimba

    Young Stan looks like a guy I know who every time I see I want to punch in the face. So thanks for ruining Rizzo for me!

  • anon33

    OMFG. This has been bugging me since forever!!! That's who he is!!!! Thank you Dustin!!!!

  • So Shy

    You know what's sad? I knew that. And I even had his pinups on my wall.

    Christ, I'm old.

  • Alex0001

    I could watch that gif all day...

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Odd. I kind off look like him (as he looks now). Sadly, my beard is not as magnificent.


    I love Stan.

  • John W

    He was pretty good in the short lived series, Surface (with Lake Bell and Leighton Meester).

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Those are the only two "things" I remember about that show.

  • llp

    I...used to love Evening Shade. It had the best supporting cast.

    Did this guy not used to run with DiCaprio's crowd, in the days of yore? I might be thinking of someone else.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    I take Coach over Evening Shade for that.

  • ZombieNurse

    My best friend had a huge crush on him when we were kids, but I swear I thought he had died or something! I like his beardy face!

  • lillie

    Oh God, I remember him from Tiger Beat. Or Teen Beat. Or one of those magazines from my youth. Would've never ever connected him as Stan. I'm sure back in the day, his picture was included in the huge teen heartthrob collage that adorned my bedroom wall.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I think I saw him in Lisa Simpson's "Non-Threatening Boys" magazine.

  • Carey Adams

    Some friends of mine met him at a Saints game a year or so back. They said he name dropped himself and came off as a little bit of a DB. :p

  • Shug

    This is seriously disappointing. Crush: tainted.

    That is AWESOME.

  • L.O.V.E.

    Looks like he has spent the past 20 years working on that pothead grin.

  • e jerry powell

    No doubt.

  • pthalio

    Thanks Pajiba for making me feel real old!

  • e jerry powell

    Meh. Call me back about old when you've had naughty naughty dreams involving Tom Wopat, Gregory Harrison and Tom Selleck sitting in a really hot hot tub.

  • MrsAtaxxia

    Oh good heavens, he was ADORABLE. Now he's a big bear of a man with a beard I want to lovingly stroke, but jebus he was cute.

  • e jerry powell

    Me ♥ bear.
