Jon Hamm’s been on the promotional trail for Bridesmaids lately, and he stopped by the Conan O’Brien show last night to discuss various things, such as how he’s been filming a television show in England, and rabid “Mad Men” fans often send over huge quantities of bourbon whenever he visits pubs. Surprisingly, Hamm claims to prefer the girly, neon-tinted drinks: “Real men go for any drink that’s in the neon family.” Hamm also talked about President Obama’s killer jokes at the White House Correspondents dinner to great effect:
He was amazing, and I had kind of the best seat the house because I was sitting sort of right behind Donald Trump’s table, and watching that dude who has no problem telling people what to do and giving people trouble actually take it? He didn’t take it very well. That was a rough table. I was actually sitting next to Zach Galifianakis and we were laughing very loudly to the point where I kind of checked in with him and I was like, can we kind of tone it down? These are funny jokes but [Donald's] right there. He was not having any of it, but they were funny jokes, and Obama was hilarious. I felt kind of bad because I was like, ‘Seth’s gotta follow this guy,’ and he did do a great job. It was fun, it was super fun. I got to meet him, I got to meet the President. That’s not something that happens every day.

Sigh. He’s still so humble (and dreamy) after all of this recent success. I also like how, in real life, Hamm still looks like Don Draper but doesn’t act like him at all. Is there any way we can clone him for posterity? In case you want to witness the above words in (ahem) further detail, here’s a video clip from last night’s show:
