Jon Ham On Don Draper: “He’s Despicable”


Jon Hamm‘s Don Draper may have a lot of fans, but Hamm isn’t one of them. He thinks the Mad Men character he plays is actually “despicable”. He totally has a point but he may also be a little pissed that in order to play Draper, he has to shave 2-3 times per day. Here’s what he told the Observer about Draper, via Huffington Post:

I am very cognizant that I am playing a character. Don Draper is a pretty dismal, despicable guy, so why I would want to take him home with me I don’t know … It’s a strange thing. People tell me they look up to Don, like they look up to Tony Soprano or Walter White [in ‘Breaking Bad’]. People have these weird fascinations with people who in reality you would not want to be for a second. There seems to be that vicarious thrill. Maybe it is the fact of doing everything wrong and getting away with it.

[Mad Men] has been a solid 25 percent of my existence on the planet. But that’s enough, I think.

So yeah, Mr. Hamm is definitely ready to see Mr. Draper go. And we will all miss certain parts of him very much.
