It looks like we’re about to get a double dose of man-god Jon Hamm this January. Not only is it the much anticipated return of Mad Men, but the chiseled actor has a little something extra up his sleeve. Apparently his turns on SNL and in Bridesmaids have whetted his appetite for comedy, and he is joining the cast of David Cross’ The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret, set to air its second season on the IFC. The series centers around Cross as a mailroom clerk who talks his way into running an English energy drink cooperation.
No word on the role he’s going to play, but considering the show is also written by Cross, and co-stars his Arrested Development pal Will Arnet, we have extremely high hopes for the show. It’s a shame it’s only six episodes a season! But still there’s more coming up for the Mad Man. He’s reportedly attached to an upcoming Judd Apatow comedy co-starring Melissa McCarthy. What a Hamm! (*zing* See, Jon isn’t the only comedian around these parts)
