Handsome Mad Men actor Jon Hamm recently sat down with The Advocate‘s Brandon Voss for a little homo heart-to-heart.
In addition to discussing the requisite “man crushes” – MM writer Matt Weiner and costar John Slattery – Hamm talks advertising, his fictional character Don’s forte:
BV: How would you create a Mad Men ad campaign geared specifically to the gay community?
JH: Well, itâ€™s a very high-drama show, and itâ€™s very stylish. Three things that the gay community responds to are attitude, sexiness, and style. Weâ€™re a prime property for a big gay followingâ€”I love it.
BV: Weâ€™re an easy sell, Jon — just show us some skin.
JH: [Laughs] I donâ€™t know about that. I donâ€™t know if you want me anywhere near any kind of skin thing — thatâ€™s a nightmare.
Mr. Hamm, we respectfully disagree…
