"I do feel a little strange being up in front of a group of people, in front of cameras, talking about advertising, instead of smoking nine cigarettes and drinking three or four glasses of Scotch," Hamm said, referring to Draper's hard-living attitude, "although maybe if this was a little later in the day we could do that."

“It’s a timeworn actor’s crutch is to have a cigarette, because you have something to do with your hands,” says Hamm, who plays Don Draper. “But it’s also great looking, it adds three dimensions to the shot and it’s totally period specific – I smoke cigarettes without filters on them.”
