We hope you're just as excited as we are about 'Mad Men' creator Matthew Weiner guest editing Metro for our weekend edition. To get you ready, here are five things you might not know about him.

1. He's a former "Jeopardy!" champ.

2. He has four sons (but none of them are named Don).

3. 85 men tried out for the part of Don Draper, and Weiner had to fight for then-unknown Jon Hamm.

4. He's known for being militant about plot details being revealed in advance of episodes airing, even going so far as including a list of specific plot points he hopes reviewers won't discuss in their articles when screeners are sent out.

5. He's meticulous about every aspect of the show's production, and occasionally includes costuming notes in the scripts when he feels strongly about what someone should be wearing.
