‘Mad Men': Will Bob Benson Be Back? We Asked Him

Actor James Wolk has moved on to another ad agency

When Bob Benson joined "Mad Men" last season, he quickly became one of the show's most enigmatic characters. The drama suddenly became a mystery that made us wonder if Bob was a government spy, time traveler, or simple swindler.

We learned the truth about Bob by the season finale, but there may be more to unravel. The question is whether the actor who plays Bob will be available to do it again. James Wolk is moving on this season to CBS's Robin Williams comedy "The Crazy Ones," in which he again plays an ad executive.

But Wolk says that won't keep him from returning to "Mad Men" if the show wants more Bob.

"I had so much fun on that show and that's up to those creators, but if there's room to play on that show I'd love to. I had so much fun," he said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, where he was promoting "The Crazy Ones."

Did he know Bob's secrets from the beginnning?

"I didn't really know who he was," he said. "I was trying to figure it out as the season went on. So as it first started it was just this guy who was a little vague and popped up here and popped up there. As the season unfolded I was brought into who he really was."
