Ben Feldman‘s lovable guardian angel Fred returns to Drop Dead Diva in Sunday’s Season 4 finale (Lifetime, 9/8c), and we’ve got an exclusive first look at his reunion with the original Jane!
“Fred is back to the old desk job that he had at the beginning of the series,” previews Feldman, who scored an Emmy nod in July for his recurring role as copywriter Michael Ginsberg on Mad Men. “I don’t think he’s sad or happy. He’s just moved on.”
Ben attended an event last night and photos from it are now up.

Big congratulations to Ben on his Emmy nomination!
The votes are in, and “Mad Men” newcomer Ben Feldman scored an Emmy nomination for his portrayal of the AMC drama’s fast-talking Michael Ginsberg in the Outstanding Guest Actor In A Drama Series category.
On Thursday, Feldman took the time to talk to HuffPost TV about his nomination via phone. In addition to gushing about his “Mad Men” co-stars Elisabeth Moss (Peggy Olson) and Jon Hamm (Don Draper), who are also 2012 Emmy nominees, Feldman opened up about whether or not he would be returning to “Drop Dead Diva” and the surprising reason he’d love to work with Al Pacino.
First of all, congratulations! What does this nomination mean for you and your career?
Who knows what it means for my career. This is all new to me! I had a moment today after I was done talking to my family and all of the obligatory people where it occurred to me that there were actually people that voted for me, and that blew me away. That there were people who thought I should even be included on that list is still surreal and strange to me.
I added 8 photos of Ben at the event on April 19th.

As the newest addition to “Mad Men’s” cast, Ben Feldman made his debut on Sunday’s (April 1) episode as junior copywriter Michael Ginsberg, who he describes as kind of “brilliant, different and weird.”
“I feel like I’ve been looking over my shoulder for months,” Feldman tells Zap2it when we ask him what it’s like to finally have the secret out. Show creator Matthew Weiner is notoriously secretive and kept Feldman’s casting under wraps until (almost) Sunday’s episode aired. “It’s kind of nice to be able to relax a little bit and have a small amount that I can talk about.”
Feldman, who TV viewers know as guardian angel Fred from Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva,” says his audition — like his on-screen job interview — was utterly daunting.
“They don’t want anybody to know anything, especially strangers that are coming in to audition,” he says. “So you get a script, but names are changed and situations are changed so I had sneaking suspicions that my interview might be with Peggy and then with Don. And the first scene that I auditioned was that scene with Peggy interviewing me. And I went in for Matt and Jon [Hamm] because Jon was directing the episode. So tremendously intimidating.”
I added 6 photos of Ben at the event on January 29th.

Drop dead? Not yet. Lifetime is getting a fourth season order to Drop Dead Diva.
