Jon Hamm Talks 'Mad Men,' 'Friends with Kids'

"Extra's" AJ Calloway caught up with "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm, who returns to season five of the glossy 1960's AMC drama this month after being off the air for nearly a year and a half. The actor hinted, "It'll be a continuation of the story we set out to tell five seasons ago."

In the season four finale, viewers were taken by surprise as Don Draper abruptly proposed to his secretary/girlfriend, Megan. The new season debuts with a special two-hour premiere on Sunday, March 25 at 9/8C on AMC.

Hamm's latest project, "Friends with Kids," involves his "Bridesmaids" co-star, Kristin Wiig. The film was written and directed by his real-life GF Jennifer Westfeldt, and is about a couple (Hamm and Wiig) whose two friends want to have a baby, but aren't romantically involved.

Hamm, who has been dating Westfeldt for 12 years, said, "I want to have other people's kids -- I want to borrow other people's kids for the weekend, not in a creepy way, just hang out and tell stories... give 'em back."

He added, "I'm a fun uncle! A funcle!"

See Jon and Kristen in "Friends with Kids," dropping into theaters Friday.
