Hamm at Borders on Sunday

One of our spies caught Jon Hamm buying two copies of "Mad Men" on DVD at the Borders on Boylston Street on Sunday. "You've got me in a dork moment," Hamm said, once he realized he'd been spotted buying his own show.

For the record, Hamm said the DVDs were gifts. No word on why he can't get copies of "Mad Men" for free, but we give him credit for stimulating the local economy while he's in the Hub.

Hamm, who plays Don Draper on the AMC hit "Mad Men," is in Boston to co-star in Ben Affleck's bank robber thriller "The Town" based on Chuck Hogan's novel "Prince of Thieves." Hamm plays an FBI agent out to get Affleck and his gang. The cast spent much of last week filming scenes around Fenway Park. Hamm was also spotted with his longtime girlfriend, "Kissing Jessica Stein" actress Jennifer Westfeldt, at the Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro yesterday.
