|Jon Hamm - TIFF 2010|
Although we won't be seeing any new episodes of AMC's Mad Men until Spring 2012, this latest bit of news will have Fans of the Drama Series excited. TVLine has confirmed that Donald Draper (Jon Hamm) himself not stars in the Series, but also will be directing the eagerly-awaited Premiere of Season Five.
Hamm tells TVLine, “I watched Slattery do it, and he handled it with such grace and ability and ease,” he continues, before adding with a laugh, “I figured if he can do it, shitt, I can do it too.”. Co-star John Slattery directed two episodes of the Show last season.
The handsome Actor has been making the most of his time off from filming, with appearances on Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock. He currently can be seen in the massive hit Comedy Bridesmaids, opposite SNL's Kristen Wiig. He also has been busy producing and acting in his long-time partner Jennifer Westfeldt's her upcoming directorial debut Friends with Kids, which also stars Bridesmaids Co-stars Wiig and Maya Rudolph.
Westfeldt and Hamm were seen last September in Toronto schmoozing on the Party Circuit during TIFF. Perhaps we'll be seeing their collaboration in Toronto this Fall?
