Jon Hamm Signs New Mad Men Contract

at . Comments

Don Draper will be drinking, smoking and brooding on Man Men for the entirety of the series.

Jom Hamm signed a new deal this week to remain on the AMC drama for three more years, which is the same length of time the show was renewed for in April. It will likely go off the air when both deals are up.

Hamm will also direct his first episode of the Emmy Award-winning series some time in 2012.

Mad Men won't return until then, but if you haven't seen Bridesmaids yet, hurry up and do so. The film is worth the price of admission for Hamm's role in the opening five minutes alone.

Mad Men Quotes

It's been a pleasure working with you all. I wish you the best of luck.


Nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means "the pain from an old wound." It's a twinge in your heart far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a spaceship, it's a time machine. It goes backwards, and forwards... it takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called the wheel, it's called the carousel. It let's us travel the way a child travels - around and around, and back home again, to a place where we know are loved.
