Jon Hamm To Direct 'Mad Men's Season Five Premiere

Jon Hamm will not only be in front of the camera when 'Mad Men' returns but he'll also be calling the shots behind it.

Hamm tells Michael Ausiello that he will be directing the Emmy-winning drama's fifth season premiere.

“The wheels have officially been set in motion to make that happen,” Hamm says.

"It's a very exciting challenge that I'm looking forward to with a mixture of utter fear and excitement."

"It's been in the back of my mind... 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."

The actor says he gained confidence after watching co-star John Slattery direct an earlier episode: "I figured if he can do it, shit, I can do it too."

Production on the show's delayed fifth season is slated to get underway in August. It will air in March of next year.
