Mad Men star Jon Hamm will make his directorial debut on the highly anticipated fifth season of AMC’s hit series Mad Men. He has signed on to direct the season 5 premiere. 

Hamm will be the second actor on the show to go behind the camera. Actor John Slattery directed episodes 4 and 12 from Mad Men season 4. 

Season 5 will premiere next March, so it's going to be awhile. Series creator Matthew Weiner made a deal in March in which he will be the showrunner for Seasons 5 and 6 with an option for a seventh.
