London: Mel Gibson could be set for a comeback with a leading role in TV hit `Mad Men`.

Sources say that the actor is a big fan of the AMC cable show and has been in talks with its creator Matthew Weiner about guest starring in the next series.

It will not just be a walk-on cameo part for Mel as Weiner sees much `dramatic potential` in giving him a season-long role as a rival to Jon Hamm`s womanising advertising genius Don Draper, reports the Daily Express.

Set in the hard-drinking world of New York`s ad industry in the Sixties, `Mad Men` is a hit with viewers and critics, scooping the best drama Emmy three years in a row.
