A computer in the Sterling Cooper & Partners office created some surreal situations on Mad Men this past season, but Jon Hamm’s not done with “techno-phobia.” Hamm will star alongside Game of Thrones‘s Oona Chaplin and actor Rafe Spall in the upcoming Christmas special of the British anthology series Black Mirror, Channel 4 announced

EW television critic Melissa Maerz called Black Mirror “the Twilight Zone of our time,” and according to Channel 4, the 90-minute special will concern “three interwoven stories of Yuletide techno-paranoia.” Hamm’s character will be a figure within all three. “I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the Black Mirror Christmas Special. I have been a massive fan of the show since its inception,” Hamm said in a statement. “Its dark humour and intelligent observation of our society and values hooked me deeply as a viewer and I’m honoured that Charlie and the rest of the creative team have asked me to participate in wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas.”

Other Black Mirror episodes have featured Domhnall Gleeson, Hayley Atwell, Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay, and Outlander‘s Tobias Menzies.
