Jim CutlerPlayed by Harry Hamlin
Jim Cutler walks into the merger with SCDP all smiles, but his upstanding facade cracks when he enthusiastically calls up his “doctor” to push the creatives through a working weekend. Cutler enjoys a little extra pep himself and winds up peeping on Stan getting it on with a hippie. He demonstrates a talent for backhanded solutions by recruiting the overearnest Bob Benson to service a former SCDP account and then rejoicing in Bob’s failure. He and Roger butt heads and compete to be the top dog, but while Roger’s in California with Don, Cutler starts his plan for dominance without being detected.
