Although Mad Men is on hiatus (they haven’t even started filming season 4 yet… get on it ASAP, Matt Weiner!), Jon Hamm has been keeping busy, I suppose. He’s starring in Ben Affleck’s newest directorial outing, The Town. He was at the Golden Globes on Sunday, where he debuted a (wonderful) beard (and yeah, his show won). He’s been out pimping his newest film, the historical literary drama Howl, at Sundance. I think I heard a rumor that he’s going to be reprising his role as the dysfunctionally handsome Dr. Drew Baird on 30 Rock soon, but I’m too lazy to look it up for verification. So that’s what he’s been up to, or will be up to. And look at that beard!
More pics after the jump…
Jon Hamm probably isn’t too well known just yet, unless you’re a fan of his amazing show Mad Men or happened to catch his guest stint on 30 Rock. He was nominated for an Emmy for his performance as ad man Don Draper in Mad Men, and won a Golden Globe for it. As an added bonus, he is also extremely good-looking.
Why He’s More Than Just Eye Candy: Don Draper is probably one of the most complex characters on television, and Jon Hamm plays him perfectly. But, he also has a wonderful talent for comedy, which he displayed on 30 Rock and as host of Saturday Night Live. He could have a future in either drama or comedy, and be amazing at both.
Here’s one of his best scenes from the finale of the first season of Mad Men.
