The Simpsons are Hamming things up! Jon Hamm – the delish Don Draper from Mad Men – is going to voice a character on the animated show in an episode called Donnie Fatso. We only get to watch it in December (BOO!) The storyline is that Homer becomes an undercover informant in prison to break into Fat Tony’s gang. Which means – yay!- Fat Tony (voiced by Joe Mantegna) is back! Hamm plays the FBI supervisor monitoring Homer.
No Mad Men crossover here, if that’s what you were expecting. Al Jean, the executive producer of The Simpsons confirmed, “There’s no Mad Men reference. Jon’s a gruff FBI man. Homer asks if he can pick his undercover name and finally Jon just says, ‘Your name will be Nicky Blue Pants Altosaxophony.’ Homer says, ‘Do I get to keep the name when I’m done with it?’ and Jon says, ‘No, it’s the property of the government.’ He has no patience for Homer.”
Apparently he was a dream to work with too (uh, obviously). Jean revealed, “You gave him one note and he immediately did 12 great things with it. He was really funny. And handsome. He had it all.” Comments? Hamm and Homer – yay or nay? We’re gunning for a big, fat yay!
