We knew Elisabeth Moss played the president’s daughter on “The West Wing” and Jon Hamm once promised a lady a “fabulous foot massage” on a now-cancelled dating show. Thanks to this BuzzFeed, we now know that the rest of the “Mad Men” cast has been under our noses this whole time. Well, if you watched that “Buffy” spin-off “Angel,” anyway. [YouTube]
“He seemed like he was a good-looking, athletic guy who possessed qualities I did not possess. We were playing Trivial Pursuit in teams. [A friend's sister] and I were on one team and Jon and [Sarah's brother] were on the other team. Jon would want to go right to Yellow, which was History, and I was like, ‘Oh, great, this guy is smart too.’ They would ask a question like ‘What is the largest lake in Africa?,’ and Jon immediately went, ‘Lake Victoria.’ I felt so emasculated in the game that, as a result, I started reading atlases.”
Paul Rudd and Jon Hamm have been friends since college, so Rudd contributed a rather endearing story about getting badly crushed at Trivial Pursuit in the latter’s Vanity Fair cover story. It goes like this: Hamm had taken a friend’s sister to high school prom. But by college, Rudd had his eyes on the sister. The two guys ended up facing off in a game of Trivial Pursuit, trying to impress the girl, and, well, it did not end well. Jon Hamm actually dominates Trivial Pursuit. Why are we not surprised he is even more perfect than we thought? [Vanity Fair] [Image via Sam Jones exclusively for Vanity Fair]
What is wrong with me today? First, I am full of doubts about the circumstances surrounding George Clooney’s engagement. Then, I saw this photo of “Mad Men” costars Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss out together in NYC and my first thought was that they’re both dressed kind of like they’re trying to hide their identities and therefore they must be having a secret affair. Why am I so cynical? Why do I assume the worst? But I mean, Elisabeth is kind of Carmen Sandiego-ed out. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
“Look at Bieber or whoever. You’re like, ‘What the fuck, man? What are you doing? Why?’ There’s no one telling those people no, and it’s a shame. [He should have] a mom or a dad or a really good friend who can say, ‘Hey, shithead!’ You see people in the world and you’re like, ‘Do you know how a washing machine works? Do you know how to wash a dish? Life skills are something we’re missing … just shit you needed to learn in life. There used to be a class that kids had to take in high school called home economics, which was cooking and sewing and just shit you needed to learn in life.”
Well, if Jon Hamm thinks that Justin Bieber is a shithead, then I guess the matter is settled. (And of course Bieber doesn’t know how to wash a dish or use a washing machine. I’d be surprised if he poops by himself.) [BuzzFeed via Men's Fitness] [Images via WENN]
It’s the final season of “Mad Men”. Ever! This means we only have one more season of looking at Don Draper. Frankly, this depresses me. To get through this scary time, let’s pay tribute to some of the very best Don Draper looks from seasons passed on College Candy…
I thought the first time I’d see Jon Hamm look “amazed” would be after a roll in the hay with me … but watching him act out facial expressions for a puppet on “Sesame Street” isn’t a bad consolation prize. Here’s Jon explaining the meaning of the words “guilty,” “frustrated” and “amazed” and showing what they look like for Murray.
After the jump, check out another (freakin’ adorable) video with Jon Hamm and Murray all about the letter “O.” Keep reading »
You know that thing where you feel really, really embarrassed for someone you don’t even know? Where you cringe watching what’s happening to them? Where you squirm instead and think Oh my God I feel so bad for you that this exists? That’s how I feel about this 1996 clip of Jon Hamm on a dating show called “The Big Date.” Self-professed “foot fetishist” Mary needs a “sexy, hot man” who knows how to give a good foot massage. ”Jon” doesn’t just give a good foot massage, he gives a fabulous foot massage. “The Big Date” has been canceled. But clips of Jon Hamm promising an evening of “fabulosity” live on the Internet forever. [YouTube via BuzzFeed]
Ugh, you know how when people get back from vacation, they always want to show you photos of all the amazing things they did and places they visited and food they ate, and inside, you’re all, “Thanks, but no thanks, your vacay photos are really only interesting to you.” But you still look at all of their damn pictures because you know you’ve asked the same exact thing of countless friends and family members who probably had very little interest in the amazing taco place you found in Tulum or the four millionth skull inside Paris’s Catacombs. I bring this up because I really think we should move forward as a society and all make a pact to stop expecting and asking people to show interest in our vacation photos. Unless of course Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon have photobombed your vacation photos, in which case, you have my undivided attention.
Yesterday was a beautiful day in Los Angeles! I’m here this week, so I should know. It was so nice that Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt decided to take his large cojones for an underwear-less stroll. On a somewhat unrelated note, I also took a stroll yesterday — wearing underwear though — and got hit by a car! I’m fine, don’t worry. I just can’t stop talking about it, which is why I’ve turned this post about Jon Hamm’s balls into a post about me and my dance with death. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
I find it impossible to separate Michelle Dockery from Lady Mary, her character on “Downton Abbey,” and apparently neither can she. Even when playing Connie Tough, a bad ass cop in “Tough Justice” alongside Michael Chiklis — on TNT, natch — her hoity-toity side comes out. There is a prim and proper way to fight crime, you know. (Bonus: Jon Hamm narrates!) [Funny Or Die]
