David Cross’s Todd Margaret may have some Increasingly Poor Decisions, but getting Jon Hamm to act like a robot (or at the very least, a 90′s dial-up modem) on his IFC comedy series is not one of them. In a new spot for the show’s upcoming second season, Hamm is coerced by Blake Harrison into attempting to trick Will Arnett by making “noises like a 70′s computer.” Watch the full clip — in which a nervous Hamm (he’s no Michael Winslow, but we still love him) has a system meltdown and more or less turns into a sexy underwater robot — below.

U.S. Postal Service to make stamps with living celebrities on them: Who would you like to lick the most?
On Monday, the U.S. Postal Service announced that, for the first time ever, they will make commemorative stamps that feature living celebrities on them. Typically, the standard rule is that you have to be dead at least five years to get the prestigious honor of being licked and sent to exotic locations like… Milwaukee, but in an attempt to boost sales and interests (stamp collecting is cool, you guys), the U.S. Postal Service is now open to suggestions on Facebook and Twitter for which living stars should be put on a stamp. Their only stipulation? That the star has “made enduring contributions to the United States of America.” Ah, so close Kim Kardashian!
Since we love any opportunity to honor our favorite celebrities and decide which of them we’d like to lick without getting in serious trouble (we’ve been putting some thought into that for quite a long time), we came up with some of our own suggestions (Jon Hamm, Betty White, Robert Pattinson, Tina Fey, Bruce Springsteen, to name a few.) We also wanted to see who you think should be sitting pretty on the right hand corner of your envelopes. Check out our dream stamp gallery and vote in our poll below! READ FULL STORY
Melissa McCarthy and Jon Hamm both had so many memorable and hilarious lines/scenes/moments in this year’s smash comedy Bridesmaids, but sadly, none of them were delivered together. (I would have loved to seen the outspoken Megan put major d-bag Ted in his place, wouldn’t you?)
Luckily, that might all change, according to a report from Deadline. The two stars could be teaming up — really, for the first time — for a project with Universal Pictures, Paul Feig, and Judd Apatow about a man (Hamm) who becomes obsessed with a woman (McCarthy) in an “unconventional love story.”
Apatow’s camp tells EW that it’s “too premature” to tell whether the duo will star on screen together, but premature or not, this news has me even more excited than I’d be driving a van full of puppies. READ FULL STORY
Bridesmaids is the gift that keeps on giving. The beauty of comedy is getting to try out joke after joke after joke. The beauty of great comedy — they all land. Watch alternate takes from the movie below. Warning: The language is very NSFW. READ FULL STORY
Donald Trump announced yesterday that he would not seek the presidency, and today, the new question is, Why? Why did the real-estate titan and reality-TV star take his name out of the running for the Republican nomination? According to Anthony Baxter, he’s responsible for spoiling Trump’s potential campaign. The filmmaker, whose You’ve Been Trumped yet-unsold documentary chronicles a Scottish seaside resort’s fight against Trump’s planned golf course, told the Hollywood Reporter, “I do think Mr. Trump realized he would be under severe scrutiny if he actually ran for president, and our film had become part of that dialogue.” READ FULL STORY
Over the weekend, Bridesmaids pulled in an impressive $24.4 million at the box office. But, an even more impressive feat was how it made many of those moviegoers shake with uncontrollable, gut-busting laughter.
When I saw Bridesmaids for the first time — yes, you read that correctly, first time — it was the scene where we first meet Melissa McCarthy’s character that did me in. READ FULL STORY
As you already know, on Conan last night, Jon Hamm took a swing at Donald Trump’s inability to laugh at himself at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Well, inevitably, Trump — never one to pass up the opportunity to knock anyone who breathes (unless they’ve got knockers) — has gotta swing back, right? Problem: I’ve been trying to think all afternoon about how one could even attempt to insult real-life awesome person Hamm, and I’m coming up completely empty. As EW’s Darren Franich says, Hamm “has the sense of humor of an incredibly ugly stand-up comedian, but he also looks like Superman.” He’s got a bubble! READ FULL STORY
