‘Mad Men’ Star John Slattery: Rihanna Gets Me Going — VIDEO

John SlatteryMad Men star John Slattery can wear a suit, drink a martini and handle a client like nobody’s business. But every great man has a weakness, and his is photo shoots.

Last night, Slattery joined Jimmy Fallon on Late Night to recount a recent photo shoot for GQ, where he didn’t exactly master the idea of a moving shot. Confused about how to handle the command of walking toward the camera, Slattery tried out a couple of different maneuvers (which he demonstrates below). The big winner was when he embraced the power of Rihanna and gave the camera some kind of a hybrid between marching and dancing, which equated to the motions of a too-drunk Roger Sterling.

But somehow, honestly, Slattery can even make this look good.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
