Don Draper and Walter White are serious men who do serious things with a lot of serious attention. Everything they do is so intense that you forget they are only characters. It even becomes hard to separate the characters from the actors who play them. But we managed to find a few moments when the 2013 Primetime Emmy nominees for outstanding acting in a dramatic role are cutting loose and having fun – you know. reminding us that they are people too.

Damon gets lucky in the “Matt Damon Booth” on the set of The Colbert Report.
Jeff Daniels, The Newsroom
Daniels gives Jimmy Fallon the Harry Dunne thumbs up when he confirms that he and Jim Carrey are moving forward with a Dumb & Dumber sequel.
Peter Dinklage, Game Of Thrones

Jon Hamm, Mad Men
Hamm plays dumb when he’s caught snaking on some ice cream on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. But we know he was just hamming it up.
Damian Lewis, Homeland
Lewis shows off his best dances moves on The Jonathan Ross Show. Saucy!
Aaron Paul, Breaking Bad
Paul attempts to bump fists with Breaking Bad creator with Vince Gilligan on a special episode of Mythbusters.
Kevin Spacey, House Of Cards

Ahh, we wish we got to see them this happy (and cutting loose) all the time.
