Note: Do not read on if you have not yet seen Season 6, Episode 1 of AMC's "Mad Men," titled "The Doorway."

James Wolk is bringing another handsome face to the world of "Mad Men." The star of the short-lived, yet critically-acclaimed, TV show "Lone Star" appeared in the "Mad Men" Season 6 premiere as Bob Benson, the new, overzealous accounts guy "in the outfield" at Sterling Draper Cooper Pryce, who got Don coffee and then got his behind handed to him, courtesy of Ken Cosgrove (Aaron Staton).

Since Wolk's "Lone Star" was canceled, the actor has gone on to appear in many popular TV shows. On "Happy Endings," he played Grant, a love interest for Adam Pally's character Max. Wolk also appeared in multiple episodes of "Shameless" and co-starred opposite Sigourney Weaver in USA's miniseries "Political Animals" as Douglas Hammond, the son of Weaver's character, Elaine Barrish.

The actor isn't the only familiar face popping up in the world of "Mad Men" this season. "Freaks & Geeks" and "ER" veteran Linda Cardellini also appeared in the Season 6 premiere.
