'Simpsons' exclusive: Jon Hamm to guest

jon-hamm-homerImage Credit: Albert L. Ortega/PR Photos; FoxThe Simpsons is serving up a side of Hamm: Mad Men star Jon Hamm will voice a character on an upcoming episode of the animated Fox comedy, exec producer Al Jean tells EW.com. In the episode—titled “Donnie Fatso” and slated to air in December—Hamm plays an FBI supervisor whom Homer reports to when he becomes an undercover informant in prison and infiltrates Fat Tony’s inner circle (which means, yes, Joe Mantegna returns to reprise his mobster role). But don’t expect to see Don in this don-themed episode. “There’s no Mad Men reference,” says Jean. “Jon’s a gruff FBI man. Homer asks if he can pick his undercover name and finally Jon just says, ‘Your name will be Nicky Blue Pants Altosaxophony.’ Homer says, ‘Do I get to keep the name when I’m done with it?’ and Jon says, ‘No, it’s the property of the government.’  He has no patience for Homer.”  And how did the recording session go with Hamm, who has also guested on 30 Rock and SNL? “You gave him one note and he immediately did 12 great things with it,” reports Jean. “He was really funny. And handsome. He had it all.”

    That puts him in four of my favorite shows ever. Let’s get him a role in True Blood and CGI him into the Lost Season 6 DVDas and we’ll be all set.

  • Yes

    I can’t wait to see him do more comedy. I think SNL and 30 Rock have proven the guy is hilarious.

  • Liz Lemon

    Awesome! Now I have this episode and the Halloween episode featuring Daniel Radcliffe to look forward to! :D

    • Peter

      would look forward to it more if it were Don Draper. Or at least give him something new – they’ve already done the whole prison snitch thing.

  • ziggy

    His comedic skills are insanely good; doesn’t take himself seriously and the timing is great. Loved him on SNL and am really looking forward to this December Simpsons episode!

  • Kim

    I love the Simpsons. I can’t wait to see this episode now.

    “He was really funny. And handsome.”

    Jon Hamm summed up in six words, ladies and gentlemen.

    I really loved Jon in “30 Rock”…he has a knack for comedy that hasn’t quite been used to full potential…Can’t wait to see, uh, I mean, HEAR him on “The Simpsons”!!

    • @Ronnie1

      When he was on 30 Rock, my head almost exploded. My worlds collided. There are no real words…

  • Shannon

    Love me some Jon. He will definitely have a long career, he can do comedy, drama, and he is beautiful! And that voice…makes me want to buy a Mercedes ;)

  • Jason

    We also have the episode with select cast members of Glee to look forward to!

  • LISSA

    Does it have to do with the fact that in Ben Affleck’s movie The
    Town he plays a FBI AGENT AND A
    GREAT ONE AT THAT!!
