While he may be an award-winning dramatic actor, comic actor, and trivial pursuit champ, Jon Hamm isn't prepared to stop there.

The sexy star of "Mad Men" tried his hand at directing an episode of the famed show and it seems that the confidence and ability of Don Draper extends behind the camera, too.

Costar and one-time Mad Men director John Slattery told E! that Hamm was a natural.

"Nobody was surprised at how well he would do," he said. "He's a very smart guy. He knows the show better than any of the actors certainly because he's there every day and he's in every scene...And he gives good direction. And he's an actor so he knows how to give you something specific and brief that's useful."

Is there anything this dreamboat can't do?
