Jon Hamm plays Don Draper, the creative and womanizing anti-hero of the hit TV series Mad Men. Dark-haired and clasically handsome, Hamm has been one of TV’s most popular actors since the show’s debut in 2007. Jon Hamm was described as a “sturdy, reliable character actor” by the All Movie Guide in his pre-Mad Men days. He had small roles in movies like Space Cowboys (2000, as “Young Pilot 2”) and Kissing Jessica Stein (2001). On TV, his guest appearance on the series Providence in 2000 led to a regular role on the show for the next year, and over the next five years he made guest appearances on TV shows like Gilmore Girls (2002), Charmed (2005), CSI: Miami (2005), and The Unit (2006). But Mad Men changed all that. Hamm turned heads as mysterious he-man Don Draper, and suddenly he was the Hollywood hunk du jour. He has since made repeat appearances on the show 30 Rock and starred with Rebecca Hall in the 2010 Boston crime flick The Town, directed by Ben Affleck.
