Jon Hamm’s portrayal of the dapper Don Draper in Mad Men has made his career soar.
Mad Men, a period drama set in 1960, premiered in 2007 on AMC. Since then, the show has risen to new heights. Mad Men has enamored fans with the show’s vintage wardrobe, visual concept, and historical authenticity. It has received constant buzz around award season and won many awards including fifteen Emmys and four Golden Globes.
Ever so sadly, the dynamic show is coming to an end in July. However, episodes of the final season won’t air until 2015.
Jon Hamm recently spoke to reporters about the show coming to an end saying:
“It’s been a big, big, big part of my life. I’ve got a lot of really good friends in the cast and crew. It’s going to be tricky to see it end.”
Despite the inevitable heartbreak of the show coming to a close, Hamm is excited about the prospects of what is to come in his career. He said, “I’m not going to say I wish it wouldn’t end, but it is what it is. We’re going to have an emotional journey once we wrap it up. We’ll walk away and lock the door.”
Hamm, 43, is currently starring in a Disney movie entitled Million Dollar Arm. He will be playing a real-life sports agent J.B. Bernstein, the man who came up with an unconventional way to get Indian cricket players to play Major League Baseball.
