After Sunday’s season four premiere of Mad Men in the States, everyone is talking about the mystery man who plays Peggy’s new assistant.  Well, he’s no mystery man; his name is Matthew Long.

You may recognize the 30-year-old actor from the short-lived coming-of-age drama Jack and Bobby, which ran for just one season in 2004 on the CW.  Long also played the lead character in ABC’s legal drama, The Deep End, a January 2010 mid-season replacement that was not renewed for a second season, and also featured True Blood’s Mehcad Brooks and Napoleon Dynamite star Tina Majorino. 

Born and raised in Winchester, Kentucky, Long began acting at an early age in elementary school plays.  He continued to act while studying at Western Kentucky University, where he met his now wife Lora Chaffins (the two were married in 2005).

He was discovered by his agent at the Williamstown Theater Fest in Massachusetts, and has since then appeared in the films Sydney White, opposite Amanda Bynes, and Ghost Rider, alongside Nicholas Cage. 

For now, you can catch Matt Long as Joey Baird on Mad Men, though it has yet to be confirmed whether or not he will become a show regular.
