A funny thing happened during Season 6 of “Mad Men.”

Conspiracy theories began popping up online about actor James Wolk’s extremely agreeable character Bob Benson.

Some wondered, was he Don Draper’s long-lost secret son?

In 2010 Wolk was the star of the buzzy Fox drama “Lone Star.” It was hyped as one of the best new shows that season but was canceled after two low-rated episodes.

Wolk has since continued working steadily in TV on series like “Mad Men,” “Political Animals” and “Happy Endings.”

Now the 28-year-old is holding his own with Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar on CBS’s comedy “The Crazy Ones,” airing at 9 p.m. Thursdays.

Wolk’s sworn to secrecy about whether or not his character, Bob Benson, will return for the seventh season of “Mad Men” in the spring.
