It was just a couple of summers ago when the handsome Jon Hamm was spotted all over Beantown trying to catch Affleck and his gang in the The Town. Season 5 of the AMC’s “Mad Men” series won’t be pumping till twenty-twelve but Don Draper will have a new job. Hamm will be behind the camera to direct the premiere. He never did catch Affleck but he caught his directing act. While the Hamm was in The Town, Boston dot com spotted him buying two copies of “Mad Men” on DVD at the Borders on Boylston Street. Now that’s smooth Don.

It was a year ago when The Town took over Boston neighborhoods as filming took place in the North End, Charlestown, and Kenmore Square. You might remember hearing gun shots echoing from Hanover Street, nuns with guns running down Lansdowne Street, or even high speed chases throughout the city boarders. The all-star crew includes homeboy hunk Ben Affleck, the beautiful Rebecca Hall, the spicy Blake Lively, the ever so handsome Jon Hamm, and Boston’s own Chris Cooper.
The Town—based on Massachusetts native Chuck Hogan’s heist novel Prince of Thieves—is Affleck’s second directorial debut since Gone Baby Gone, which was wicked good. The screenplay, adapted by Peter Craig and Affleck, follows a group of ruthless blue-collar Charlestown robbers who see nothing wrong in stealing and seem to always find their getaway car.
As always Affleck loves bringing revenue to his native roots and now to one of his favorite places in Boston, Fenway Park. Three days before The Town debuts nationwide, the film will be hitting some homerun’s at Fenway Park on September 14th for a red carpet premiere, a trusted source tells HEC.
