NEW YORK (AP) - To find their Mr. Darcy, the Guthrie Theater in Minnesota has turned to a Mad Man.

Vincent Kartheiser, who plays the malcontent Pete Campbell on AMC's "Mad Men," will star this summer in a new Guthrie production of "Pride and Prejudice" as the brooding hero of Jane Austen's most famous novel.

By phone Friday from Los Angeles he said: "It's interesting playing a character that people have such strong feelings about before I've even begun playing him."

The show, which will be directed by the Guthrie's leader Joe Dowling, will play from July 6-Aug. 31. It will mark the 200th anniversary of the publication of Austen's novel.
