Jon Hamm Visits Daily Show; Vincent Kartheiser Cast in Miniseries

This week, Jon Hamm visits The Daily Show, while Vincent Kartheiser is cast as a lead in a National Geographic Channel miniseries. Plus, E! Online revisits Hamm’s most memorable roles. Read on for more:

• Jon Hamm pulls double duty on The Daily Show, discussing Minions and paying tribute to Jon Stewart introducing a supercut of the host bursting into song — and The Wall Street Journal has an account.

TheWrap reports that Vincent Kartheiser has been cast as one of the leads in Saints & Strangers, a National Geographic Channel miniseries.

• Ahead of Jon Hamm’s turn on Minions (opening July 10), E! Online takes “a look back at all his most memorable roles on TV and in film.”

• The Associated Press interviews Jon Hamm about Minions, and he says, “I am very much enjoying unemployment. We finished shooting Mad Men almost a year ago today, and so it’s been a fun year.”

E! Online has a clip of Alison Brie’s rendition of Salt-N-Pepa’s Shoop for Spike TV’s Lip Sync Battle and notes that she “crushes her rendition of the 1993 hit with impeccable lip-syncing skills and even more impressive dance moves.”

• Joel Murray tells CSN Chicago about being on Mad Men: “When I first got the gig, I said I want to be on this thing until I have a Mike Brady perm. This is so good.”

Inquisitr looks back at Mad Men‘s music, remarking that Matthew Weiner “made sure to embed scenes with several megahits of yesteryears, albeit forgotten numbers now — sometimes for lesser than a minute — to add to the feel of staginess that Mad Men radiates with such vigor.”

• A New York Observer writer explains how Mad Men, “surprisingly enough, taught me how to read.”

• At TVLine, catch some glimpses of Jon Hamm and John Slattery in the trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which will be available on Netflix on July 31.

Variety reports that Queen of the Earth, a movie starring Elisabeth Moss, will be released on Aug. 26 in New York, followed by a national rollout.

• Watch Vincent Kartheiser at Indiewire in a clip from Red Knot, a movie that hit iTunes and video-on-demand on July 7.

• According to The Hollywood Reporter, Andre and Maria Jacquemetton will write and executive produce Fox’s Fatal Attraction remake.
