first_img Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss Wants to Play Norma Desmond Although we will hopefully soon see Elisabeth Moss in a revival of The Heidi Chronicles on the Great White Way, there’s another theatrical role the Mad Men star has her eye on: Norma Desmond. Moss revealed to Gotham Magazine that after seeing Sunset Boulevard on stage “I basically lived out my life waiting to get old enough to play that part.” Has she got the vocal chops for the role? “I can hold a note.
