darren pettie getty 'Pan Am': Darren Pettie to guest starIt’s not really a “type cast” as much as it in an “era cast” for Darren Pettie. The “Mad Men” actor is set to join the period drama “Pan Am” for a recurring role.

EW is reporting that Pettie will play a former WWII pilot named Vince Broyles who apparently has an ego that’s out of control. The report goes on to say that Pettie’s character is allowed to use a Pan Am plane for personal use and will likely have problems with Dean Lowrey (Mike Vogel).

Pettie had periodic appearances in “Mad Men” as Lee Garner, Jr., the son of the owner of Lucky Strike. He also appeared in a few episodes of “Ringer” as Detective Jimmy Kemper.

Pettie joins Ashley Greene as planned guest stars on the show.
