'Mad Men' Jon Hamm hams it up on SNL: Honey glazed or turkey?
"Mad Men" star Jon Hamm shaved off his beard! Thank God. Now we can take him off our Hollywood Beard Brigade list.
But that's the best thing about Jon's appearance on "Saturday Night Live."
Other than his send-up of his Don Draper character in this John Ham skit, most of his moments on the show were -- how to put this nicely -- disappointing. That whole Sergio sax player curse (covered in afterbirth) was bizarrely lame. And even his picture-perfect portrayal of sexy Republican Scott Brown fell flat.
If you missed it, Brown's good looks caused Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Robert Byrd, Barbara Boxer, and Barney Frank to have fantasies about him. Could we not have had Hamm do a faux Brown Cosmo spread instead of turn into miniature fantasy Brown dancing on the Democrats' shoulders?
To be honest, we almost fell asleep during the show, which is something we never do during "Mad Men," even with its often slow pace.
It's not Jon's fault. The writers just didn't give him decent material. And we give Jon credit for giving it his best.
But that's just our take. What did you think?
