Yes, you’re excited for Kyle Chandler and Melissa McCarthy, and, yes, you loved that Office parody. But, still, we know that nothing about the Emmys got you more pumped than the image of everyone’s favorite cartoon pilot, Jon Hamm, in a tux. Alas, Don Draper didn’t win last night — even if his show, Mad Men, did — so we were left to settle for a few fleeting moments with Hamm on the red carpet. So, above left, we offer you an antidote to the withdrawal: The two best-looking people at the Emmys, for your computer wallpaper’s pleasure. Enjoy!
Tag: Jon Hamm (61-70 of 138)
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
If EW’s grade-A review of Bridesmaids hasn’t convinced you to see the movie, watching Jon Hamm laugh while watching a fresh clip of himself and Kristen Wiig on Conan last night might seal the deal. Watch the nine-minute interview below. They talk about the film at the very end, and Hamm giggles at the mention of his character — the “unrepentant douchebag” who is Wiig’s boyfriend. It’s a genuine laugh that only builds when he talks about their awkward sex scene that opens the picture (good to know, don’t show up late!), and climaxes after the clip is shown of him suggesting Wiig take a nap in his lap while he’s driving.
Seriously, it could be the best he’s ever looked. The entire interview is charming, particularly when Conan does his Jack McBrayer impersonation and Hamm describes himself and EW cover boy Zach Galifianakis sitting at the table behind Donald Trump at the White House Correspondents Dinner and laughing “very loudly” at the president’s Trump jokes while The Apprentice star did not.

This, to the left, is Jon Hamm on Mad Men. And this, to the right, is Jon Hamm on vacation from Mad Men.* Any questions? Besides, when, oh when can 2012 get here?
*Yep, still handsome. And, lucky Hamm, being the subject of the first post in history to tag both “Sexytimes” and “PoopWatch.” HAMM!

'Mad Men': Matthew Weiner says the show will end in 3 seasons. Does this mean mustaches will be cool again?
Now that the protracted Mad Men negotiations are finally over, the show’s creator is looking ahead to the show’s future — and, surprisingly, already seems to have a conclusion in mind. Exec producer Matthew Weiner tells TV Guide that he only sees the show lasting for another three seasons: “I think that’s how long the story is…I want the show to end before the machinery has worn out.” It’s unclear if Weiner has run this plan by his network: AMC had no comment on the three-season plan. Weiner’s reps wouldn’t respond to EW’s calls for confirmation, but the 7th season cut-off seems to make sense. Weiner and the cast are currently only signed through season 6, but given that everyone involved with Mad Men has made their career off the show, it seems logical that everyone would be onboard for another season. (Although we can likely expect some fun season 7 contract negotiations.)
So now we have to start asking the deeper questions: Is seven seasons too few for a show this good? Or is it too many? Should the show go out earlier, before the flab starts settling in? And are you ready for the invasion of the ’70s mustaches? READ FULL STORY
