Jon Hamm spends '7 Minutes in Heaven' with a very lucky guy -- VIDEO

Comedian Mike O’Brien doesn’t usually get much more than a peck (if he’s lucky!) from the male guests that stop by his closet for the popular web series 7 Minutes in Heaven, but leave it to Jon Hamm to really take things to the next level.

This latest installment opens with an especially spicy reading of a mock Mad Men script where Hamm-as-Don Draper admits he didn’t cheat on his wife and instead went home and “took care of it solo, if you know what I mean.” Later, there is a visit from a tickle spider and a question about how often “the sex act ends in crying.” (For the record, it’s 50/50.)

Most 7 Minutes episodes end with a kiss and Hamm’s is no exception. The level of heat in O’Brien’s closet rarely rises above a quick, awkward smooch, so it’s a surprise when Hamm pushes him against the wall for a faux make out session, complete with flying shoes and tussled hair.

It’s all in good fun, of course. While Hamm is best known for his dramatic work in Mad Men and films like The Town, he is also a gifted comedian, having co-starred in Bridesmaids, guested on 30 Rock and hosted Saturday Night Live.

Check out Hamm’s 7 Minutes in Heaven below.

PopWatch Planner: 'Game of Thrones,' 'Mad Men' premiere, 'New Girl' features a special date, and 'Jurassic Park' returns to theaters

Early April is one of entertainment’s awkwardly quiet down times, in which the summer blockbusters aren’t out yet, television shows are winding down but not quite at their finales, and most new albums are awaiting a  release. But that doesn’t mean that your week has to be boring. You still have some great options. Unless, of course, you don’t think that the premiere of Game of Thrones, the return of New Kids on the Block, and  the re-release of Jurassic Park in 3-D are great …

Jon Hamm talks about the elephant in the room: 'They're called 'privates' for a reason'

Jon-Hamm-Rolling-StoneHead’s up, America: Jon Hamm knows you’re all talking about his private parts, and he isn’t happy to hear it.

The actor finally weighed in on No-Underwear-gate, the culmination of two years worth of tabloid photos, Tumblrs and blog posts about what exactly is going on underneath Jon Hamm’s pants. Recently, an “AMC Insider” explained someone finally had to tell Hamm to put some underwear on for the filming of the show, because otherwise it would be too distracting. Hamm isn’t amused.

“Most of it’s tongue-in-cheek,” he said to Rolling Stone. “But it is a little rude. It just speaks to a broader freedom that people feel like they have – a prurience….They’re called ‘privates’ for a reason. I’m wearing pants, for f**k’s sake. Lay off. I mean, it’s not like I’m a f***ing lead miner. There are harder jobs in the world. But when people feel the freedom to create Tumblr accounts about my cock, I feel like that wasn’t part of the deal … But whatever. I guess it’s better than being called out for the opposite.”

Details about Mad Men are scarce, but we’re guessing Hamm’s comments mean there isn’t going to be a tongue-in-cheek underwear account for Sterling Cooper Draper Campbell Harris this season.

'Mad Men': Don Draper is always attractive, and Harry... well -- PHOTOS

Is Mad Men becoming That 70s Show?

It certainly seems that way based on some photos snapped this week from the set of the sixth season of the drama, which will premiere April 7 on AMC. We already know that Don and Megan will apparently be visiting Hawaii. Now it also appears Roger, Don and Harry will be in a car together, all at the same time, at some point this season. What could it all mean?

This is what happens when you don’t announce anything about the show, Matthew Weiner. We’re forced to speculate on the smallest details. Will Sterling Cooper Draper (Pryce?) land an ascot account this season? Will Don and Roger ever change their look? (Nope!) Are you wondering how much longer you can possibly wait without seeing a trailer that isn’t just pictures and the word “affair”?

Check out another photo below that shows viewers Harry is fully embracing the new era: READ FULL STORY

This week's cover: Lena Dunham, the beautiful (and dirty) mind behind 'Girls'

Does anyone not have a very strong opinion about Lena Dunham? The Golden Globes adore her edgy HBO comedy Girls. So does Jon Hamm. And Jon Stewart. And broke twentysomethings everywhere. And probably their parents, too. But in this week’s cover story, Dunham acknowledges that her show has also earned some haters, and she’s ready to respond to everyone from James Franco (who famously called Dunham out for “creating another show about white people… [set] in one of the most culturally mixed cities in the world”) to Barbara Walters (who said she found the show’s depiction of sex “shocking” and “depressing”). Other things she’s ready to reveal to senior writer Melissa Maerz? The story of The Great High School Cheese Puff Fiasco that helped shape her taste in comedy. The inspiration behind that amazing conversation about race that she had with Donald Glover on Girls. Oh, and what happened with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler and that “middle school” comment.

Best of 2012: The crying game

We don’t really enjoy watching our favorite characters suffer – but great crying scenes are cathartic, moving, and totally captivating. They’re also rare; it’s easy enough to tug at heartstrings with manipulative music cues, but it takes real skill to make an audience empathize with someone whose job is to fake emotions. Get a hanky ready – here are our favorite crying scenes of 2012.

Carrie (Claire Danes), Homeland

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Claire Danes is Hollywood’s best crier. (Just ask the Internet.) Her tears as Carrie Mathison, Homeland’s unstable heroine, are unparalleled – and so ubiquitous that it’s impossible to single out just one crying scene from the Showtime drama’s second season. Trust us on this one; when Danes’s chin starts trembling and it looks like “her whole face is chewing gum,” you’ll want to pay attention.

Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe on playing each other in upcoming miniseries -- VIDEO

Are Harry Potter and Don Draper two great tastes that taste great together? We’ll find out after the premiere of A Young Doctor’s Notebook, a British miniseries that features Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe playing the titular doctor at different points in his life. Yes, the doctor is British; yes, that does mean Hamm will be speaking in an accent; yes, I understand if you need to go get your smelling salts.

Back? For your delicate constitution’s sake, you may be relieved to know that we don’t hear British Hamm in this behind-the-scenes video. We do, however, get to see both stars enthusing about the project, as well as a glimpse at its “darkly comic” situations — including Radcliffe nonchalantly saying “right then!” after sawing off a corpse’s leg and donning a dead doctor’s apron, then being told that the deceased “was a lot taller than you.”

All told, A Young Doctor’s Notebook looks pretty charming — but considering its stars, how could it not be? Take a look at the miniseries below, courtesy of The Guardian.
