Jon Hamm Revisits His Daunting First Scene as Don Draper

After a 17 month hiatus, Mad Men is back. Episode 3 of Season 5 airs tonight. And, to warm you up, we’re revisiting the moment when the award-winning AMC series first started. Appearing at an event hosted by The New York Times, Jon Hamm walks us through his very first day on the job, and the challenges of shooting his first scene as “Don Draper” — something he handled with Fred Astaire-like grace, says the show’s creator Matthew Weiner (who appeared on NPR’s Fresh Air last week). The talk comes from a 90 minute conversation with the Mad Men cast. It’s available (unfortunately for a fee) on FORA.TV here.

You can stream new episodes of Season 5 on the AMC website for free, and watch all prior seasons on Netflix. If you don’t have a Netflix subscription, you can always sign up for a Free Month trial.

    Did I miss episode 2? I thought the season premiere was last Sunday …

    Well, I wish I could delete my comment. I guess a two-hour premiere counts as two episodes. =)

    No worries, that threw me off too. If you look on the AMC web site, they counted the first show as two episodes.

    Cheers,
