Jon Hamm off of Mad Men is set to star in the Black Mirror Christmas special episode, because what says Christmas like Don Draper being mortally afraid of an iPad and getting in a car accident or something? Nothing, that’s what.

Hammo will star alongside Rafe Spall (One Day, I Give It A Year, Timothy Spall’s kid) and Oona Chaplin (Game of Thrones, The Crimson Field, Charlie Chaplin’s grandkid) in the feature-length Christmas special, announced today.

Filming will begin this week, and promises three “interwoven stories of Yuletide techno-paranoia”, with Hamm starring in all three of the stories. It is not yet clear whether he will have to have sex with a pig for it. You’ll have to wait until Christmas to find that out.

The actor said today: “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.”

Executive producer and married-to-Konnie-Huq person 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.”
