Jon Hamm Appears on Tonight Show, Discusses Mad Movie With Yahoo

This week, Jon Hamm appears on The Tonight Show, while he discusses the possibility of a Mad Men movie with Yahoo TV. Plus, Hamm and John Slattery are Broadway understudies. Read on for more:

• “I might be stating the obvious, but it’s pretty much the reason I got Mad Men,” Jon Hamm says on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon about a soap opera he was supposedly in with Fallon back in the ’90’s, according to Entertainment Tonight.

• Jon Hamm tells Yahoo TV that a Mad Men movie is unlikely: “I can’t imagine why there would be one. No, I don’t think so… the story ended the way it ended, and I don’t know what you would do.”

• According to The Hollywood Reporter, John Slattery and Jon Hamm are listed as understudies in Broadway’s Oh, Hello, with the Playbill noting the former received four Emmy nods “for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Roger Sterling in AMC’s critically acclaimed Mad Men.”

• Interviewed by Mr. Porter, Jon Hamm says of Don, “I guess what was so attractive about him was this cool confidence. That was his decision. He came from an unstable, strange place, and figured out that he had to project this aura of command and that people would follow it.”

• Visiting TODAY, Jon Hamm points out that humorous things did happen on Mad Men, saying, “I don’t know, a guy got his foot chopped off with a lawn mower. That was kind of funny.”

Crave Online‘s list of TV’s best episodes ever includes “Lost Horizon,” saying that the “music, the classic scenes and overall charm of the sequences are greatly missed in TV today.”

• Abigail Spencer talks to Backstage about playing Suzanne, saying, “I just remember I was like, I know this woman. This woman has never been seen on the show before. She’s an oasis. She’s a soothsayer of things to come.”

• Amy Landecker, interviewed by A.V. Club about playing Petra Colson, enthuses that “to go to work and find out that I was in a scene at Don Draper’s house, a dinner party, with everybody there—I was a pig in s***. I was so happy. My character gets drunk, and I walk into a wall.”

Bustle encourages people to “be Mad Men‘s Peggy Olson for Halloween. And not just any Peggy Olson. No. Your Peggy Olson walking down the hallway Halloween costume will be a hit at parties, I promise you.”
