Jon Hamm tells Robert Kirkman to “call me” about role on The Walking Dead

11 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With Mad Men coming to a close, actor Jon Hamm will soon have more time on his hands to take on other roles, and in an interview with MTV to promote the final season of the show, Hamm was asked about playing the villain Negan in The Walking Dead.

“Robert, call me. Come on,” said Hamm, referring to The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman,. “I’ve met Robert many times, he’s a lovely guy. I think he’s done wonders with that show and I know it’s very close to him, obviously. I’m always very nervous about anything about anybody’s saying ‘do this or do that’. That’s why I’m always in a hundred things all the time, because I always say yes. I don’t know, we’ll see. It would be fun, that’s for sure.”

Jon Hamm and Matt Weiner on 'Mad Men' and Emmys

27 March 2015 1:11 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Ah, that cool cat Don Draper never lets down his guard! When I chatted with Jon Hamm on the red carpet at the "Mad Men" bash Wednesday night at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, I asked him which one of the upcoming final episodes will be his submission in Emmy's Best Actor race. He demures, but does say that he'd like to pick up this discussion with us again after we've seen them all. -Break- When I chatted with "Mad Men" creator Matt Weiner, I asked him some rather unfair questions, including: which single Emmy victory was more important than all of the others?

A Björk Song Almost Ended Up on Mad Men

27 March 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

You wouldn’t think Björk would come up during a panel discussion about Mad Men, but that’s just what happened at the Film Independent at “Lacma: A Tribute to Mad Men,” when Matthew Weiner and Jon Hamm chatted about the season-five finale episode “The Phantom.” The episode ends with Nancy Sinatra’s “You Only Live Twice” playing over a gorgeous tracking shot.The song became a hit when the Nancy Sinatra version was used in the 1967 James Bond film of the same name. Weiner noted that he almost used Björk’s cover of the song in the season-one pilot, and when the audience laughed at this notion, he said, “You can laugh. It’s amazing.” Jon Hamm quickly jumped in: “Björk was originally going to be Peggy. You laugh — she’s amazing.”  Weiner explained why he waited to play the song in season five: We were listening to this all the time, »

John Slattery Speaks On Ant-man Appearance And Dominic Cooper's Portrayal Of 'Howard Stark'

27 March 2015 9:07 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Before English actor Dominic Cooper took on the role of Iron Man's father, Howard Stark, in the 1940s setting of Captain America: The First Avenger and the Agent Carter spin-off TV series, Mad Men alum John Slattery portrayed an older 1970s iteration of the character in Iron Man 2. With Slattery set to reprise the role later this year in Ant-Man, the actor talked recently talked with IGN about returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe after all its success post-Iron Man 2. "It’s crazy, yeah," he said. "It’s the biggest set I’ve ever seen, I think, or I’ve ever been on certainly. It’s just a gigantic room and there’s numbers and girders and you think, is that what green screen looks like? And things change so fast.

Jon Hamm Opens Up About Mad Men Ending and Finding Peace, and We've Never Rooted for Him More

27 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Not much has been said about it, and it should be said: Jon Hamm did something pretty unbelievable this week. Just 24 hours after the sensitive news broke that he had finished a stint in rehab, Hamm showed up for a full day (and night) of press, promoting AMC's Mad Men, which comes back April 7. Many actors…most actors…would not do that.  In good spirits, and joking that he's part of a secret society of hot, bearded, Hollywood men (who also shave their legs), Hamm tackled some serious questions about what Don Draper deserves in the very end, and how working on yourself is important for the people you love. He was honest, sincere, and funny, and as he talked about the »

'Mad Men' creator Matthew Weiner: 'I feel a sense of accomplishment'

27 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Matthew Weiner has always been more comfortable talking about the past of “Mad Men” rather than letting anyone know anything about the future — even when that future is only seven episodes long, starting Sunday, April 5 at 10 p.m. Having spent enough time over the years asking Weiner questions that he responded to with a very guarded, “Well, you’ve got to watch,” I knew enough to focus as much on the past as possible when we recently sat down for an hour-long interview to discuss the end of his Emmy-winning baby. We talked about the last days of production, looked back all the way to the show’s origins when Weiner was a staff writer on “Becker” looking for a different kind of career in television, the show’s long acting Emmy drought, and more. And I made it almost to the end without a single “You’ve got to watch. »

Get Hard – The Review

26 March 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s team-up time for twin titans of comedy once again . Actually one of the stars of this new film was attempting this just a couple of months ago. The in-danger-of-over-saturation star Kevin Hart made an attempt to broaden his fan base by joining up with another rising comic star, Josh Gad, In the modest hit (couldn’t have cost that much) The Wedding Ringer. Well it certainly worked for Kevin’s comic predecessors Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and Chris Tucker. But this time out he’s truly going for it, making a run for the comedy big leagues, by teaming with an established superstar of laugh-filled flicks, Will Ferrell (sure he’s had some duds, but when he scores, he scores big). And this new film takes some hot-button current topics, and gives them a spin that may remind you of certain Pryor and Murphy classics. So, let’s »

12 Things You Didn’t Know About Jon Hamm

26 March 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Richard Shotwell/AP

Over the last few years, Jon Hamm has become the international poster-boy for drinking whiskey, smoking cigarettes, and sleeping with your secretary. From the murky pool of Hollywood anonymity, his role as Don Draper has not only brought him into the homes and hearts of Mad Men fans worldwide, but established him as one of the most iconic screen presences of his generation.

The man just oozes cool. Like an overripe piece of fruit being squeezed by public adoration, Hamm’s charm, charisma and sex appeal just burst over every project he’s attached to. Regardless of your gender or sexuality, if you still maintain you don’t fancy him a little bit then you’re making small animals cry with your lies.

Hamm was something of a late bloomer in the industry though, there was no breakout childhood role or iconic coming-of-age performance in a teen drama, »

Who’s the Funniest Sterling Cooper Employee?

26 March 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Mad Men isn’t known for its humor, but it has its moments of levity, and you might call some of the characters’ quirks amusing. Vulture asked past and present cast members who they think is the funniest Sterling Cooper employee at the show’s Black & Red Ball premiere at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. Cara Buono, who played consultant Dr. Faye Miller, quickly answered, “John Slattery. He’s quick, and witty. He just makes you laugh. Every single time you look at him, you start laughing.” Bryan Batt (Salvatore Romano) called a tie: “Jon Hamm and John Slattery. The Johns.” Kiernan Shipka chose three: “Oh my gosh. Both Johns are actually so funny. And Vinnie K., Vincent Kartheiser, is hilarious. So all of them.” With no hesitation, Hamm replied, “Me!” and added, with a big smile, “I’m kidding. The answer is always Roger Sterling. That’s all I can say. »

You Won't Believe Which Mad Men Star Turned Down Empire

26 March 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

File this one under: Big mistake...Huge! Ok, so we actually think this Mad Men star will be just fine, but still, John Slattery has to be kicking himself a wee bit for turning down a chance to star on the biggest breakout show of the year: Fox's Empire. It turns out that executive producer Danny Strong tried to get Slattery on the Fox show...and he turned that chance down. Strong guest starred on the AMC drama with Slattery before Empire came onto the scene, and Slattery reveals in an interview with The Daily Beast that Strong asked him to be on it. "That's Danny Strong who punches me in the balls!" Slattery says of Strong's Mad Men character. "That guy is on top of the »

John Slattery Was Supposed to Be on Empire

26 March 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As Mad Men's final episodes approach, it's natural to wonder where the show's performers might show up next. Elisabeth Moss is currently on Broadway, January Jones is on The Last Man on Earth, and John Slattery apparently could have been on Empire. Recall that Danny Strong, Empire's co-creator and executive producer, plays Roger Sterling's cousin-in-law Danny Siegel on Mad Men. Slattery tells The Daily Beast, "[Strong] actually asked me if I wanted to be on Empire, and I think I let that ship sail. I don't know who I would've played … some white dude." Please, Lord, don't let it be too late. We would all love to see John Slattery play some white dude on Empire. »

House of Cards Boss Beau Willimon Responds to My Biggest (and Pretty Much Only) Gripe About Season 3

26 March 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following story contains spoilers about Season 3 of House of Cards. Proceed at your own risk.

I know House of Cards‘ third season left some fans feeling as cold as Claire Underwood’s average body temperature, but I, alas, was not one of them.

With the exception of the tedious, suspense-deprived, Doug-centric premiere, I found Season 3’s obsession with foreign affairs, gay rights and campaign dramaturgy to be endlessly watchable. I welcomed all of the new blood, particularly Boardwalk Empire vet Paul Sparks as Frank’s quasi-biographer/man crush Thomas Yates, with open arms. And I was particularly engrossed »

Ray Donovan Season 3 Adds Aaron Staton, Fairuza Balk to Cast

26 March 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

As the saying goes, when one door closes, another opens. Following his reoccurring role as Ken Cosgrove on Mad Men, Aaron Staton will appear in a reoccurring role on Showtime’s Ray Donovan Season 3. According to Deadline Hollywood, Staton, who has also appeared in bit parts on The Good Wife and Person of Interest as well, will play Mr. Donellen, “a strict yet kind high school teacher with a tragedy in his past.” Little else is known about how Donellen will figure into the world of Liev Schreiber’s titular L.A. fixer, especially considering how things were left with Mickey (Jon Voight), the rest of Donovan’s friends and family, and the FBI at the end of season 2. [caption id="attachment_362604" align="alignright" width="351"] Image via Showtime[/caption] The casting of Staton is only the latest in a long line of casting news for the Showtime series.

Matt Weiner: Finale’s Premiere Is First-Ever ‘Mad Men’ Convention

26 March 2015 10:29 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Mad Men,” the critically acclaimed television series that popularized everything from period dramas to pear-shaped figures, is coming to an end. To celebrate the launch of the series’  final seven episodes, AMC and Lionsgate TV hosted a high-fashion Black & Red Ball at downtown Los Angeles’ Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Wednesday night that was only befitting the stylish show known for highballs, hemlines and hijinks in the 1960s advertising world.

“‘Mad Men’ has changed the lives of hundreds of men and women who created 92 hours; 92 successful one-hour works of art,” AMC president and g.m. Charlie Collier said before the screening of the first of the final episodes, as he called to the stage the writers, stars and many production department heads responsible for bringing creator Matthew Weiner’s series to the screen.

Weiner, who received a standing ovation upon taking the stage, opened his speech by joking that “people will stand for anything. »
