Abigail SpencerPoor Abigail Spencer. She can't seem to land a role in a contemporary setting and she's getting a little bit typecast. First she's cast as Don Draper's mistress in 'Mad Men' and now she's being cast in the science fiction western 'Cowboys and Aliens' as a prostitute.

Contemporary movies are boring anyway. The movie is based on a graphic novel of the same name about an alien invasion that takes place in the Old West and some cowboys have to team up with some Native-Americans to stop them. The movie is directed by Jon Favreau, who has experience with movies based on comic books what with him directing the 'Iron Man' franchise.

The movie has an all-star cast with Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, Harrison Ford and Sam Rockwell so Ms. Spencer is in good company. And truth be told, she's also been cast as a doctor in the second season of TNT's 'Hawthorne', so I think her career is safe from typecasting.
