Jonn Hamm has been having a HUGE problem while filming the sixth season of AMC's Mad Men TV show. Don Draper's 'bulge' is not only bursting the seams in the 1960's-style wardrobe, but his revealing package also must be digitally altered in advertisements, claims NY Daily News.
An AMC insider tells Confidenti@l that during filming for the upcoming season of the hit show, which is set in the "tight clothing times" era, Hamm was politely instructed by a staffer at the network to put on underwear while shooting his 'Don Draper' scenes.

"This season takes place in the 1960s, where the pants are very tight and leave little to the imagination," a source tells NY Daily News. "Jon's impressive anatomy is so distracting that they politely insisted on underwear."
In addition to causing inappropriateness on set, Hamm's crotch area also has to be digitally altered for billboards and bus ads because his bulge is too noticeable in pictures.The source said that during seasons one and two, AMC's marketing team even had to do some "Photoshop magic" on promotional booklets that went out to press in order to make his private parts more "private."
"Imagine how distracting that would be on the side of a bus or building when the promotional pictures came back the first few seasons, we had to work with them. Everyone was concerned about too much Christina Hendricks boob, but it's Jon that has the most to show. It's a good problem to have," an on-site source revealed.
The "well-endowed" actor apparently "knows what he's got," and his package is said to be the inside joke on the set of "Mad Men."
Although Hamm may not be too ashamed of his bulge, his rep said, "It is ridiculous and not really funny at all. I'd appreciate you taking the high road and not resorting to something childish like this that's been blogged about 1,000 times."
The highly anticipated sixth season of AMC's hit series "Men Men" has been confirmed to air on April 7, states Christian Post. The premiere will be a 2-hour event starting at 9 p.m., ET, and starting April 14, the television series will resume its usual 10 p.m. ET airtime.
Not much is known about what season six holds for Don Draper and the rest of the characters on "Mad Men," but one thing that is for certain: John Hamm and his prized possessions will make their big debut in the spring.
