LOS ANGELES -- Don Draper is heading from Madison Avenue to the sports world.
Jon Hamm, who stars as the advertising executive on the show Mad Men, will host the ESPY Awards on July 17 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
The actor is a sports fan whose favourite teams are the Cardinals and Blues from his hometown of St. Louis.
Hamm says as a "marginally successful high school athlete" he thinks his skill set works well with the host duties. He just has to figure out what cleats to wear with a tuxedo.
