“This is happenstance, but it is kind of crazy how kind of identical we decided to dress. I’m referring to him as a human being as if he dressed himself. A lot of people would say this kind of describes my acting on Mad Men. A lot of waxy stares, a lot of silent brooding,” stated Jon Hamm.

Jon Hamm is currently busy promoting his upcoming movie Million Dollar Arm which hits US theatres on May 16, 2014.

Anyone who’s watched Jon Hamm on Mad Men over the past seven years is used to seeing the actor sitting around a conference room table in a suit, pitching his product to a captive audience.

Jon Hamm’s lifelong fascination with baseball, which started at Cardinals games with his dad in the 1970s, has come full circle in his new film Million Dollar Arm. The biographical story features Hamm as sports agent J.B. Bernstein, who discovered two future Pittsburgh Pirates prospects in India after staging a reality show there.

“We played this different kind of ballgame and drafted for it. We brought guys up for it with Vince Coleman and Willie McGee, Tommy Herr, Lonnie Smith and Ozzie Smith. These guys were just burners. Vince Coleman would get a walk and end up on third base in three pitches.” stated a beaming Jon Hamm.

For much of the mid-1990s, Jon Hamm lived as a struggling actor in Los Angeles, but later made appearances in television series like Providence, The Division, What About Brian and Related.

In 2000, he made his feature film debut in the space adventure film Space Cowboys. The following year, he secured a minor role in the independent comedy, Kissing Jessica Stein (2001).
