Jon Hamm/Don Draper films ‘Mad Men’ in LA: cool cat or are you over it?

Don Draper and the Impossible Ennui of the 1960s, the photo shoot. Actually, these are some candids from the LA set of Mad Men, with Jon Hamm dressed up in character at Don circa… 1967 maybe? Last season it was 1966, so I’m guessing this is 1967. That tie tells me that Summer of Love will be coming up soon! That tie says “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” Draper-style. By the way, I know I’ve always fought with many of you about this, but now I get it – Jon Hamm is at his sexiest when he’s in character as Draper. Normal Jon Hamm is attractive (to me), but Draper is a sexy beast. Sigh.

So, are you going through Mad Men withdrawals? Surprisingly enough, I haven’t been jonesing for my Mad Men. No, it’s not that I’m “over” Mad Men, I just found last season to be kind of soul-crushing with all of the Megan storylines. Megan exhausts me. Unfortunately, Megan is still around, as we’ve already seen from set photos in Hawaii last year. And guess what? We don’t have to wait that much longer for the new season! Mad Men’s sixth season will premiere on April 7 with a two-hour episode (which is what they did last season!). Here’s the new teaser:

It’s kind of meh. I hope they do a real season trailer soon. I also hope Jon Hamm gets sent out to do some major press for the show, because he’s always an interesting interview. Maybe he’ll bash the Kardashians again.

Last thing: Page Six reported yesterday that Hamm has signed onto a new film called Million Dollar Arm where he plays a real guy, J.B. Bernstein, a sports agent who recruited two Indian cricket players to play professional baseball. I’m sure he’ll love that because the Hamm Dong loves baseball.

    My friends and I were just talking about how we think Hamm is at his most handsome as DD. But that his character is so far from Hamm’s real persona, which seems to be really goofy.

    I’m looking forward to the new season. Maybe because I don’t hate Megan. I think she’s an interesting foil for Betty.

    I can’t wait, I love the show.

  6. danni says:

    he is much more better looking as don draper.
    but also charming as himself, also when he looks like he just went out of bed.

  7. Marjalane says:

    So over this middle aged drunken creep; he pings my smarmy button in a big way.

  8. Dawn says:

    I love Mad Men and can’t wait for the new one to begin. With Sally growing up and seeing how Don handles that to the competition between Betty and Megan (who I believe is bored with Don). It’s a great show and I love all the smoking and drinking and general upheaval that was the 60′s. I only wish we could watch Sally as she enters into the 70′s but I doubt the show will go that long.

  9. marie says:

    not really a fan, he’s attractive enough but when I look at him all I can think is chipmunk cheeks. she should really stop doing that to herself

  10. Sweet Dee says:

    I love Mad Men and I like Jon Hamm. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t looking at his dong through his pants any time it’s on a screen, though. It’s distracting, because you can ALWAYS see it, but I’m not complaining.

  11. BooBooLaRue says:

    I’m new to MM, just into the beginning of Season 2 and what a treat DD is to watch.

    • Esmom says:

      I was new to it last year. I watched season 5 then went back and binge-watched the first four seasons. I loved it! It’s so quiet and slow compared to other shows that I think some of the performances are underrated, like JJ. Her subtlety is pretty amazing.

  12. Shelly says:

    I will ALWAYS be in to Hamm as Don Draper. Don Draper is an old-school sexy beast! I actually dislike seeing Jon in his regular, real-life clothes. It’s just not the same! Don Draper forever!

  13. RHONYC says:

    The Dongenator???

    he’s still in the running, sure. ;-)

  14. Mira says:

    Over Mad Men? No way! I’m waiting for the the sixth season to kick off..

  15. Happy21 says:

    I’m so excited! Cannot wait.

    Jon Hamm is hot as himself but as Don Draper he is to DIE for.

    I sure hope this season is better than the last. I still quite enjoyed it but there was not enough Betty and Megan was draining…

  16. KellyinSeattle says:

    He is handsome!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Old-time handsome.
    I love Carrie Fisher’s donut locks.

  17. anonymous fan says:

    Oh how I love Mad Men and cannot wait for the new season.Last season was their worst.Too much Megan,not enough Sally and Joan and I hate that (spoiler alert….killed himself.He was a great character.That being said everyone looks better on the show than in real life.Those 60′s clothes are beautiful and flattering.

  18. april says:

    Yes, definitely love him as DD. I’ve known someone who looks like DD but even looks better.

    I wish more men looked like DD.

  19. Eleonor says:

    I am looking forward to the new season! Maybe Megan will finally disappear :)

  20. Apsutter says:

    NOT over it, I’ll never be over it! I cannot get enough of that show and can’t wait till May!!

  21. Pop Will Eat Itself says:

    I’m over it. I watched the first few episodes of the last season and lost interest. The spell is broken. I’m all about Hell on Wheels and Breaking Bad.

    I met Jon Hamm during an Obama Grassroots event last October. When the cameras and throngs of people are not in his face, he is a very quiet, almost shy but very personable man. He is ridiculously good looking in person, even better than Draper or any of the characters he has played.

    Many of the photos of him right now show him to be very tired and haggard looking as they are near completing the filming of season 6 with a grueling schedule. When Mad Men wraps he is off to India to film “Million Dollar Arm.”

    There was no evidence for the blind item or the rest of the negative gossip where people seem to confuse Jon Hamm as a person with the womanizing character of Don Draper that he has inhabited for over 6 years.

    When I met him he was with Jennifer Westfeldt and it was easy to see that they share a special bond.

  23. debisis says:

    Hmm, you know, I’m kind of getting a complex about his face, it starting to look like a foot :( . Is he getting skinny? Does he go to a gym often? he’s supposed to be bigger, no?

    At any rate, I still don’t want him to get that tweety bird “JWest” pregnant. DON’T DO IT DON’ I MEAN JON! I think we should start calling her tweety to make ourselves feel better (about ourselves). That and I really should not be in my 40s.

  24. dunzo says:

    Don’t really mind if the story line is kinda lame, I only watch Mad Men for the hot guys and the nice 60s clothes, Jon Hamm and John Slattery look soo delicious in their 60s suits !!

  25. Jack says:

    Im over it or him rather,I dont watch mad men either. Tried to but didnt get through 5 mins.
