Mad Men's Manly Hamm in Movies, Braff's Garden State Follow-Up, Quinto Talks Star Trek 2

New York Magazine profiles Mad Men womanizer Don Draper - or rather, they profile the man who channels him: Jon Hamm. While many of us already know that Hamm is funny (SNL show-stealer) and manly (he grows a beard in two hours), New York wanted to find out just exactly what Hamm is worth. Word on the street (the side where agent, managers and publicists hang out) is that while Mad Men fans love him, there are still plenty of people who need to discover Hamm. With a handful of film roles coming up, including supporting roles in Ben Affleck's The Town and Judd Apatow's Bridesmaids, Hamm's range and accessibility is growing. While he may not be an overnight leading man, he has Clooney-esque better-with-age sex appeal and good looks that can bide him some time as a long term investment.

Mad Men Seduction Video

This new Mad Men avatar is pretty similar to the one I made before--although they do offer a few more fashion choices. But in anticipation of the Season Four launch on July 25 on AMC, go ahead and Mad Men yourself.
