Nominated again for best supporting actor for Mad Men, John Slattery was already on a high, celebrating his first time directing an episode (the fourth) of Mad Men's new season, which returns July 25. "It was challenging - a bit of an out of body experience to direct myself," he tells TV Guide Magazine. "I remember Lizzy Moss [Peggy] laughing in my face and apologizing every time I tried giving her direction. She said, 'I'm sorry, I can't take you seriously.' We have a table read today for episode nine, so I'll be seeing everybody again."
Though he can't say anything about the new season, Slattery calls the firm's new office environment "fantastic," with a few holdovers from his character Roger's old office. "Everybody has brought in a little something familiar." Wouldn't an Emmy look nice in Roger's digs?
