Jon Hamm- The haircut that won an Emmy
BEFORE THE DON
Jon Hamm (Jonathan Hamm) Senior Year 1989
Things weren’t always cheek bones and slick hair for the future Draper, from his days at the University of Texas at Austin, Mr. Hamm spent his days running a muck and letting his hair have a mind of its own. Clearly the young Hamm had no intention of being the new face of men’s GQ aspirations but little did he know, Los Angeles will make a beautiful person of us all.
THE NOT SO FAMOUS LOS ANGELES LIFE
I bet you didn’t know Jon Hamm was a contestant on The Dating Show… In fact, Mr. Hamm didn’t even break into the acting scene until the late age of 37 years old. Perhaps one reason is the choice in haircut only made him suitable for acting gigs like The Dating Show, but the dream of being a star studded lady killer was on its way in the form of Don Draper.
CLEANING UP THE ACT
Having worked almost 20 years in restaurants, Hamm finally got his big break in 2007 when producers of the new show Mad Men, pegged Hamm for the leading role of Don Draper. The tough, clean cut Directer of Advertising has an attitude that matches his style. Unrelenting and on point. The role earned Hamm 15 nominations for Best actor in a TV drama and as of last week, Hamm finally brought home the bacon with an Emmy award of his own.
