Best known as smooth-talking ad man Don Draper in Mad Men, Channel 4 has confirmed that John Hamm will be starring in this year’s Black Mirror feature-length Christmas Special.

John will be joined by Oona Chaplin (The Crimson Field) and Rafe Spall (One Day) in a 90-minute seasonal special which promises to be the most mind-bending episode yet in Charlie Brooker’s alternative drama strand.

Showcasing three interwoven stories of techno-paranoia, John will appear in all three tales within one episode, binding them together to create and unsettling yarn which holds a dark mirror up to modern life…

Jon Hamm said: “I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the Black Mirror Christmas Special. I have been a massive fan of the show since its inception.

“Its dark humour and intelligent observation of our society and values hooked me deeply as a viewer and I’m honoured that Charlie and the rest of the creative team have asked me to participate in wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.”

Creator Charlie Brooker said: “I’m revoltingly happy that Jon, Rafe and Oona are participating in the horrible pageant that is Black Mirror. As far as I’m concerned their presence is a huge Christmas present that’s arrived early.”
