The most debonair sleazeball on Madison Avenue is staying put for another three years. Deadline Hollywood reported Tuesday that Jon Hamm has extended his contract with Lionsgate from two years to three in return for a larger paycheck-eight figures, to be exact. According to Deadline, Hamm was the studio’s main priority, other than show creator Matthew Weiner, in order to ensure the success of Mad Men‘s future seasons. Hamm’s new paycheck puts him in the ranks of cable’s leading men.
Hamm attended the 2011 NHL Awards at the Palms Casino resort in Las Vegas last night in true NHL facial fashion. He was joined by jocks and broads alike, including Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer. Also in attendance was the Stanley Cup, earned in 7 game by the illustrious Boston Bruins. Well done, home team. Well done. You boys might do wonders with hockey sticks, but you can wear a suit like Mr. Hamm?
