Which Mad Men Actor Is Directing the Season Premiere?

It's Don Draper himself, Jon Hamm! (Not you, Pete. It was never going to be you.) Hamm told TVLine that he was inspired to sit in the director's chair after watching his co-star John Slattery helm an episode. "He handled it with such grace and ability and ease,” said Hamm. “I figured if he can do it, shit, I can do it too.” The actor will shoot the long-delayed premiere this August, and let's hope Hamm plays to his strengths and includes a lot of acrobatic, foul-mouthed sex.
