EP 520: Jon Hamm on Mad Men, SNL, and the Luck of the Irish
Jon Hamm talks about making his first trip to Ireland for his new movie Wild Mountain Thyme, filming in the ancestral hometown of President-elect Joe Biden, and why he was blissfully relieved that he didn’t have to attempt an Irish accent. Jon recalls his childhood growing up in St. Louis, the unusual side job he had when he was starting out as a struggling actor, and the deadline he gave himself to make it in Hollywood. Jon discusses the lengthy audition process for the role that made him famous on AMC’s Mad Men, the hardest part about hosting Saturday Night Live, and his plans for an upcoming reboot of the classic Fletch franchise.
Wild Mountain Thyme is out in theaters and Video-on-Demand starting Friday, December 11.
