You Mean Jon Hamm Is Not Really Don Draper?

September 1st, 2010 // Leave a Comment

Jon Hamm, seen on the set of Mad Men, in Los Angeles on August 31, seems to have some misconceptions about the idea of acting.

Appearing in the new issue of Rolling Stone, he compares himself to his debonair alter-ego on Mad Men, Ad Exec Don Draper.  “I don’t really have that much in comparison to the way Don holds himself…I’m not that guy.  I don’t really look like that.”

Actually, Jon, we beg to differ.  You really do look like that.  That is you.  You generally tend to look exactly like yourself.

Despite my inappropriate love of the debaucherous, alcoholic, womanizing Don, (who is so severely flawed that almost everyone is able to relate to him) I can’t help but think the real deal is probably about a million times better.  Kudos to you, Don/Jon!
