Don Draper's going behind the lens!

After much debate over whether the show would even return for a fifth season, it's been decided that Jon Hamm will direct Mad Man's upcoming season premiere. Jon reveals it's an opportunity that has been in "the back of [his] mind for a while now," and since the show has finally been given the greenlight, he felt like there was no better time to forge ahead with his dream than now.

“The wheels have officially been set in motion to make that happen,” Hamm tells TVLine. “It’s a very exciting challenge that I’m looking forward to with a mixture of utter fear and excitement…It helps to have people you know and trust surrounding you. We’ve been fortunate enough to have very little turnover not only in our cast but in our crew.”

Jon adds that production should be getting underway in August, but since he's taking on the added responsibility of directing, he'll be getting started a bit earlier than the rest of his cast.

The new season can't come fast enough! Can't you guys start now???

P.S. - If you haven't watched them yet, you MUST see Jon in action in the Bridesmaids outtakes! HIGHlarious!

    I see him on late night talk shows, or in those "Bridesmaids" outtakes, and believe I'll never be able to watch "Mad Men" again without thinking, "That's just goofy, dorky Jon Hamm." But then I see this old promo photo… and it's Don Draper. He is one hell of an actor to be able to pull that off with just a pose.
