"I think that making questionable choices in life doesn't necessarily negate you from the pursuit of happiness," says Hamm. "I hope Don finds peace. I hope he does, honestly, I think he deserves it. He's had a pretty rough go, for a pretty long time. And you know, the process of working on oneself is never easy but hopefully it's beneficial in the long-term for not only you, but the people you love."

As Mad Men prepares to draw to a close, its star Jon Hamm is taking on new big-screen challenges. His biggest leading-man movie role to date is in this week's UK release Million Dollar Arm, which opened to warm reviews and soft box office in America in May and is just now expanding worldwide.

After making his debut at age 26 as "Gorgeous Guy at Bar" in a 1997 episode of Ally McBeal, Hamm's older appearance made it tricky for him to find work. "I always looked 10 years older than I was," he says. "So I was auditioning to play dads when I was 25."

'Mad Men' will be ariing its final season next spring, but how does the 43 year-old actor feel about leaving Don Draper behind?
Jon Hamm's journey to become the superstar he is today wasn't any easy route, in fact he only gained widespread fame at 36 years of age when he landed hugely popular role as 'Mad Men's' Don Draper in 2007.
Hamm only found success very late on in his career
The AMC drama series, which has won seven Emmy awards since 2008, has been a great success, but the show will unfortunately air its final season next spring. So how is Hamm feeling about leaving the show that made him a Hollywood star?

Ari Folman’s long awaited follow up to Waltz With Bashir has finally arrived; the Israeli film maker plays with live-action, animation and fantasy in a truly original way with ‘The Congress’, which sees Robin Wright play a version of herself.
Robin Wright lets herself be recorded for future use
Wright became hugely famous two decades ago with The Princess Bride, both in the film and reality, but unlike reality, the Robin Wright in ‘The Congress’ spends the next two decades struggling to find work. So a deal is struck: Hollywood offers her one more chance by preserving her entire image, meaning she’ll star in movies for evermore without ever having a act again.

Jon Hamm has a waxwork. And he cried at Frozen.
Mad Men actor Jon Hamm, who posed alongside his weird looking waxwork this week, admits he cried whilst watching Disney's Oscar-winning movie Frozen. The 43-year-old, currently playing Don Draper in the last season of Mad Men, explained that Despicable Me 2 left him teary as well.
Jon Hamm in 'Million Dollar Arm'
Speaking to Vanity Fair, Hamm said: "The last movie that made me cry was eitherDespicable Me 2 or Frozen which I watched on the plane coming here. Both of them made me cry because I had to watch a documentary about death gangs in Cambodia called An Act of Killing. I was literally like 'I gotta scrub these out of my brain.""

Jon Hamm has revealed his wax mannequin at Madame Tussauds mere days after he discussed the humble – and slightly scandalous – origins of his own career dressing sets for soft-core porn films.
Jon Hamm has come a long way since the mid-90s when he spent his days dressing the sets for soft-core porn movies! He was in London yesterday (Saturday 10th May) unveiling the wax mannequin of his likeness but his interview in June’s Vanity Fair shows fame has definitely not gone to the Mad Men actor’s head as Hamm remembered his humble beginnings in acting.

Is it Hamm or Draper? Who knows, who cares?
He took a selfie. Of course he did. When Jon Hamm met Jon Hamm, nothing else was ever going to happen. The Mad Men star couldn’t help snapping the moment next to himself as he unveiled a waxwork model of himself.

"That's a no-brainer. I'm probably not done doing that either," he told The Associated Press regarding the selfie. He also turned up in a Mad Men-esque grey suit, which the Hammster himself was sporting when he arrived.
The 43 year-old actor confessed that the final scenes of the Oscar-winning animation made him very emotional.

There's certainly something to love, but it's not 'Moneyball'
Jon Hamm stars in 'Million Dollar Arm', a film that takes the underdog story and does very little to circumvent expectations surrounding it. And while some critics agree that this true story has merit on the silver screen, a 57% rating on Rotten Tomatoes suggests the director Craig Gillespie skewed his pitch.
Jon Hamm is a long way from Maddison Avenue
Hamm plays JB Bernstein, a sports agent whose business falls on hard times. In dire need of inspiration, he stumbles across an idea: To find the next baseball star amongst India’s millions of cricket players.
Jon Hamm stars as a baseball agent in Disney's 'Million Dollar Arm'
Remember the Titans, Mighty Ducks, Cool Runnings - could Jon Hamm's Million Dollar Arm be Disney's next classic sports movie? It certainly looks like one of the aforementioned family flicks and Hamm has that 90s sports agent/manager/coach thing down to a tee.
Jon Hamm in 'Milion Dollar Arm'
The movie - a true story - tells the tale of JB Bernstein, a once-successful sports agent who finds himself edged out by bigger, slicker competitors. He and his partner face closing their business for good, but whilst watching cricket in India on television, JB has a light-bulb moment and sets off to Mumbia with a cantankerous scout (Alan Arkin) to find the next big pitching sensation.

The 'Mad Men' star looks back to the days when he wasn't synonymous with Don Draper.
Jon Hamm will be featured on the cover of the June issue of Vanity Fair in which he opens up on his life before Mad Men fame. The 43 year-old actor has made his name playing the suave lead character Don Draper on the hit AMC series and has become synonymous with Old Hollywood glamour with his elegant red carpet looks.
Jon Hamm Has Revealed That He Once Worked As A Set Dresser For "Soft-Core Porn."
We were recently offered a unique glimpse into Hamm's past when a clip of him starring on a 1996 episode of reality TV dating show The Big Date surfaced and went viral. A young Hamm appeared on the show with a floppy middle parting and beige shirt/T shirt combo that would be deemed unforgivably unfashionable these days. It probably was back then too: he wasn't picked to go on "the big date."
The 43 year-old leading man describes working as a set-dresser on erotic Cinemax films as "soul-crushing."
Jon Hamm took the long road to become a leading man.
In the 90's the 43 year-old was just like any other struggling actor, worked low paying jobs while trying to find work.
Unfortunately for Hamm, his early days on television were quite memorable for all the wrong reasons, which he was reminded of last month when old footage surfaced of the actor appearing on a dating show called 'The Big Date' in 1996.

Don Draper found hostility from all angles during last night's episode, 'Field Trip.'
Poor Don Draper: episode three of the seventh season of the hit HBO series Mad Men saw the philandering advertising genius as drunk and as sad as ever as he was simultaneously pushed away by estranged wife Megan and SC&P, the company where he used to be king. Don's marriage was at breaking point when he received a call from LA informing him that Megan is having trouble dealing with rejection from auditions.
Megan Pushes Don Away In The Third Episode Of Season Seven.
The vulnerable actress tells Don "it's sunny here for everyone but me," and jokes about slitting her wrists in the bath tub and meets her husband's concern with sarcasm. Don tells her to "Stop acting like a lunatic" and reveals that he has been on a forced leave of absence. Upset that Don hasn't been in LA during his time of work, Megan sends him packing, saying "This is the way it ends. It's going to be so much easier for both of us."

Finally a light at the end of the tunnel for Don. A tiny light.
Finally, after weeks of doom and gloom, the Mad Men writers stretched their comedic muscles with an Easter weekend episode that will make it into MM history. Not that it starts out that way, mind you. It’s February 13 and, as per tradition, Don Draper starts the day by sleeping in and watching a lot of television and binging on booze – but not too much, of course. He has a meeting, but it’s not until later in the day, so that leaves plenty of time to interrogate Dawn, who comes by mainly to keep him up to date on the goings on at SCP.
Don is still boozing, Megan's still a character, sort of.
Meanwhile at SCP, Peggy, ever the workaholic, is asking Stan to hand in some work before the end of the day. Doesn’t seem likely on Valentine’s Day, but you’ve got to admire her for trying. But let’s not forget that Peggy is A. a woman and B. very, very single. Obviously it all blows up in her face. Not only will she not get the work done, but she, along with the viewers has to endure a few painfully awkward minutes of V-Day banter.Needless to say, Ginsberg's crude assessment that Peggy had an evening of "masturb[ating] gloomily" lined up definitely was a new low for Peggy. But the worst is yet to come.

We love The Simpsons. Everybody does. But we really love The Simpsons
The Simpsons has the ability to be incredibly scornful and delightfully playful at the same time, even when dealing with some of the darker aspects of American culture, like institutional racism, corrupt politicians and the poverty crisis. It also handles the satiation of popular culture with expertise, as evidenced by the show’s almost perfect homage/jab at Mad Men.
With AMC’s slick drama set to resume smoothness this weekend, The Simpsons took it upon themselves to mark the occasion with a riff on the ‘next week’ montages used by AMC. It features a host of characters from the legendary cartoon saying ominous/inane things in Mad Men’s typically fast and stylish manner.

Not only was he a struggling actor, but the 43 year-old didn't find any success when appearing on 'The Big Date' in 1996 as he was passed by two women.
Age was been kind to Jon Hamm.
Before finding success in the television and film industry, a 25 year-old wannabe actor appeared on a dating show called 'The Big Date' in 1996.
Luckily for Hamm's fans, but not so much for him, footage of the episode was uploaded to YouTube on Friday (April 4th), and it is a very amusing watch.

The 'Mad Men' actor takes on a baseball challenge in this true story adaptation.
The trailer has been released for Disney's upcoming sports drama, Million Dollar Arm, which stars Jon Hamm, Alan Arkin, Bill Paxton, Aasif Mandvi and Lake Bell. Based on a true story, the movie sees the Mad Men star take centre-stage as J.B. Bernstein, the sports agent and marketing wiz who devised a programme to inspire Indian cricket players to make the jump to baseball in the search for a news sports hero.
'Million Dollar Arm' Sees Jon Hamm Play Real-Life Sports Agent J.B. Bernstein.
With music by double Oscar winning A.R. Rahman ('Slumdog Millionaire'), Million Dollar Arm charts Bernstein's journey to India for a new generation of sports stars as well as the players' experiences in the competitive environment of US sports as well as their new cultural encounters thousands of miles away from home. Hamm as Bernstein is a sports agent who is struggling to keep his home and business in an increasingly innovative market against more enterprising sports entrepreneurs.
JB Bernstein is a sports agent who may outwardly look successful, but is struggling to make much business these days due to serious competition from much more enterprising sports entrepreneurs. JB and his business partner Ash are under significant threat of closure if they don't come up with some new ideas soon. He devises a plan to introduce America's next biggest baseball star by travelling to India to check out some of the nation's finest young cricketers. After filming a talent show called 'Million Dollar Arm', he brings winners Rinku and Dinesh over to the States to learn the art of baseball. Unfortunately, there appears to be more differences between baseball and cricket than Bernstein initially thought, and the boys are struggling under the pressure. However, with a little teamwork and determination, things start to look like they're going to work out just fine.

The seventh and final season of 'Mad Men' premiered last night (2nd April) in Los Angeles and was attended by the whole cast - past and present.
The season 7 premiere of Mad Men was attended by the whole cast as they celebrated the final series of the long running drama.

The period drama which focusses on a New York advertising agency and executive Don Draper (Jon Hamm) has aired since 2007 but the network behind the hit show, AMC, announced last year the seventh series would be the last.
How will Mad Men season 7 end? Matthew Weiner is giving little away.
It's less than a month until Mad Men begins its final season and the cast and crew of AMC's signature drama gathered on-stage at PaleyFest on Friday night (Match 21, 2014) to discuss the inevitable end of Don Draper's long and complex story.

Mad Men season 7 is almost here, people.
Don Draper, getting off a plane, in slow motion, while putting on his hat. Yep, the Mad Med season 7 teaser is finally here and it's already got Reddit buzzing into action. According to Rolling Stone, the clip was originally set to remixed version of 'Que Sera, Sera' before changing to a more optimistic track later on. Mild spoilers to follow.

Ok, so the clip gives away pretty much NOTHING about what we've got to come in season 7, but it's Don Draper getting off a plane in slow motion - so who's bothered?
An in-depth look at who could star in season 2 of HBO's intense crime drama 'True Detective'.
Nic Pizzolatto put the sincerity and quality of True Detective’s story over multiple seasons of the show, asserting that a strict 8-episode format would be condusive to a strong third act. And judging by the critical claim he’s received – his creation is being talked about in the same breath as The Wire – one is inclined to trust the man who risked everything to write the new HBO anthology series.
Woody Harrelson [L] and Matthew McConuaghey [R] as Hart and Cohle in 'True Detective'
“One of the reasons I wanted to do an anthology format is I like stories with endings. I like a good third act. And continuing serial dramas, they tend to have really good beginnings and really long middles and then sort of have to hustle to develop an ending. And I like the idea of telling a self-contained story,” explained Pizzolatto.

Radcliffe reckons: get off social media and don't go to movie premieres when you're nothing to do with the film.
The general consensus on Daniel Radcliffe would appear to be thus: landed worldwide fame because he ‘looked’ like Harry Potter; trying to be taken more seriously by seeking out challenging roles. And while any actor would admit to luck playing a factor in their career, that general consensus is becoming widely unfounded.
Radcliffe in Harry Potter: The Chamber of Secrets, and [right], in Kill Your Darlings
Apart from the fact that Radcliffe has indeed embarked on a number of more challenging, adult roles, the 23-year-old Fulham-born star needs only to speak to an interviewer to display his maturity of thought. While many celebrities flaunt their activities on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, Radcliffe has decided to stay clear of that.
How on earth has the young actress earned such a risky accolade?
Lily Collins has been names the "most dangerous celebrity" of the year by security company McAfee after it was discovered that typing in the 24 year-old Mortal Instruments actress' name yielded more "risky" results, i.e. malicious websites, than any other.
She May Look Harmless But...
Though it may not be an accolade to be proud of, Lily being identified as the most virus-laden online name of the year serves as a warning for those who seek information on their favorite stars, films, or TV shows: cybercriminals are adept at taking advantage of the latest cultural trends to net unsuspecting web surfers.

Jon Hamm turned out to be a perfect choice of host for the ESPYs.
Jon Hamm, the American actor best known for playing Don Draper on Mad Men, has potentially put himself in the frame to host the Golden Globes or the Oscars after delivering a hilarious hosting performance of the ESPYs this week.
Those who've seen 30 Rock or Bridesmaids will know Hamm has comic timing, though we didn't know he was this funny.
Hamm was initially regarded as a strange choice of host for the awards, which honor achievements in sport, though he worked the crowd with aplomb, calling the ESPY's "the world's largest gathering of people wearing sunglasses indoors."

Draper's descent continues?
Don Draper has enough flashbacks to his childhood when he isn’t on drugs, so on the latest episode of Mad Men you’d have hoped that the show’s main protagonist would be tripping out with something a little more left field when he is injected with a drugs cocktail from the mysterious Dr Hecht. But nope, it’s back to his salad days for him.
Anyway, the main thing that The Week seems to be focusing on in latest episode, The Crash, is that Draper is starting to show some signs of self-awareness – even if he won’t let on to any of the rest of the cast. He’s always been a hard ass, and more than happy to screw over people for his own gains, but there are a couple of lines where the TV mogul seems to be fully aware of his own behavior. "The timbre of my voice is as important as the content," Don tells Ken at one point "I don't know whether I'll be forceful or submissive, but I must be there in the flesh." See what we mean? He’s fully aware that what he’s saying isn’t what he’s meaning.
The thing is, the show’s other main characters are starting to tire of this. Sylvia’s pretty much done with him, while Ted’s really annoyed with him too, despite only recently merging Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce with Cutler, Gleason and Chaough. His kids are drifting further apart from him too, so with five episodes left of the season, is Don going to finally get found out? Everything seems to be pointing towards a big fat ‘Yes’.
Continue reading: Mad Men Recap Of The Crash: Is Don Draper Becoming Self-Aware?
Mad Men has come in for criticism, though it remains one of the most interesting and thought provoking dramas on television.
AMC's signature drama series Mad Men is continuing to get criticism for its heavy historical themes in season six, with the latest episode covering the assassination of Martin Luther King. Series creator Matthew Weiner has been forthright in his assessment that the show is not a historical documentary and that it was never supposed to focus on the turbulent changes on the 1960s, though isn't that exactly what's happening?
Don Draper's Affair Continues on Mad Men
As mentioned, Sunday's episode The Flood focused on the events of the assassination of Luther King, though have the producers got a trick up their sleeve? One of the finer moments of the series so far came at the end of season three, when President John F. Kennedy's assassination was reported, coinciding with the end of the original Sterling Cooper agency and the breakdown of Don and Betty's marriage. The Flood had similar themes, though Don and son Bobby used the thinking time after King's death to watch Planet of the Apes. The famous ending revealing the future destruction of the earth - New York City particular - seemed right.

Don Draper's latest pitch to Ketchup again featured something that isn't actually there...
Just as it looked as though Don and Sylvia's affair was reaching fever pitch, the Drapers were propositioned by another couple on Sunday's episode 'To Have And To Hold.' The power couple head out for dinner with Megan's married boss Mel and his wife, but when Mel suggests going back to their place to "smoke some grass and become friends," things get a little awkward.
Don and Megan Are Propositioned By Another Couple In Mad Men Season 6 Episode 4
Elsewhere, Megan tells Don she is expected to film love scenes for her latest acting gig - "I guess if I wasn't your husband, I would be happy for you," he responds. Later, he shows up on set and sees the scene in action, tearing into his wife for "taking money to kiss someone." He storms home and visits Sylvia.

And does anyone really read Dante on the beach?
If you have an internet connection and some kind of TV viewing device, saying this is probably unnecessary, but Mad Men is back!
Three cheers for the season premiere! Well, to be fair, Sunday night saw a lot of exciting events for TV geeks, as the Mad Men premiere coincided with Game of Thrones and, according to The New York Times, the latter was actually the ratings champ of the night. Regardless, by now Mad Men has an established core audience, and even if you’re not part of that group, it seems like mandatory viewing. The exploits of Don Draper & co. have become such a part of the zeitgeist, that your lack of basic knowledge on the series would be met with puzzled, if not outright disdainful looks. But even though it’s quality TV and even though you’d be hard pressed to find any internet-dwellers who don’t know at least a bit about the mad men by osmosis, is this show really a hit?
Well, that depends on what your criteria is. Mad Men has collected pretty much every award there is and it’s receiving critical praise left and right. Even though it’s not without its flaws, just Sunday’s depiction of 60s New York raised more than a few eyebrows (and who the hell reads Dante on the beach!?) Even so, the show is loved, without a doubt.

Mad Men star receives offers of free underwear
Two underwear companies are reportedly vying for the opportunity to harness Jon Hamm’s nether regions. Word got out that Mad Men’s producers are keen for him to stop going commando on set, because his tackle is kinda visible on the show, underneath his clothes. Fruit of the Loom and Jockey both caught wind of the unusual problem and have offered to solve the issue of Hamm’s unsightly bulges.
According to TMZ, a spokesperson for Jockey said “Jockey would like to offer our support for Jon Hamm in the form of a lifetime supply of Jockey underwear.” Imagine that! Free underwear for life! For doing nothing, other than totally failing to put any underwear on when you’re at work! If only we could be so lucky. Jockey weren’t the only ones dying to get their garments on Hamm’s crown jewels though. Fruit of the Loom sent out a message for Jon, saying “We want people to be themselves. And if going Commando makes you happy, we say go for it. But in case you change your mind, we got you covered."
Season 6 of Mad Men is due to start airing on April 7, 2013, with 13 episodes scheduled, as per the previous five seasons. Hamm plays the role of Don Draper and won a Golden Globe for his performance in the show in 2008.
Images from the shoot of the hugely anticipated sixth series of Mad Men have been released and, if they’re anything to go by, it looks like the cast are going to be spending much of it topping up their tan! That’s right, Don Draper and his wife Megan are off to sunny sunny Hawaii.
Mad Men are traditionally vague on their previews for upcoming series, so we’re not really any the wiser as to what the season’s actually got in store for us. Are they really going to spend all the season in Hawaii? We can’t see it, there’s not nearly enough people for Don to screw over out there, and most of them would probably take it with a chilled out smile, the relaxed nature of their surroundings allowing them to let bygones be bygones far quicker than Don - and we - would be used to.
So, erm, what do the photos currently over at The Huffington Post show us? Namely that Don will still be smoking and that Megan’s taken a shine to tropical cocktails. Or maybe she hasn’t, perhaps that was the first one she drank. Such is the paucity of information we’ve been given here. We’re still not really sure when the sixth of the show will be airing, though filming did begin in July so, mid-next year perhaps?
Jason (Scott) and his best friend Julie (Westfeldt) are a bit horrified when their coupled pals Leslie and Alex (Rudolph and O'Dowd) and Ben and Missy (Hamm and Wiig) have children. So they decide to have a child without the baggage of a relationship, freeing them to find the right person once they're already single parents. Their baby son is adorable, and raising him brings them closer as friends while allowing them to pursue romances with the hot Mary Jane (Fox) and the sexy Kurt (Burns). But no one else is buying it.
