Jon Hamm Interview: . “There becomes this assumption of, ‘oh this is a reflection of who you are.’ And Don and I, we’re opposed in most ways.” Baby Driver.
It’s nearly two years since the hit AMC series came to a finish and since then, Hamm has been tackling a range of diverse role far from the stilted remit of Draper.
There was his turn as Reagan’s hired assassin in Netflix’ Wet Hot Summer, a masquerading spy in Keeping up with the Joneses – and his newest role as a devious armed robber in Edgar Wright’s hotly anticipated heist thriller, Baby Driver, where one of the nicest men in Hollywood gets to finally play…the bad guy.
