Not Enough Hamm in Your Diet

23 04 2009

Lately, it seems you can’t do a Google News search for Jon Hamm and not find his name popping up in some sort of review for “Mad Men” or some blog dedicated to his future acting jobs. Well, over on Jaunted.com, a pop culture travel blog, in their article about in-flight movies that are not worth seeing, they mention one of the stunning problems with “The Day The Earth Stood Still.”

That's a good point!

That's a good point!

The Sleepy: Since no one saw “The Day The Earth Stood Still” in theatres, United, Delta and Continental probably got a great deal on the 1950s sci-fi remake in which Keanu Reeves plays an alien. But really, this film suffers from what most movies and television shows today lack: Not enough Jon Hamm. Since Jon Hamm is actually in this movie, this is an extra-dire case. Also, do we really care enough whether Keanu decides to save the world? Snooze.

Indeed, most television shows and movies suffer from not enough Hamm. With critics and pop culture bloggers the world over clamoring for more from America’s Actor, why not cast him in the lead role in a franchise tentpole summer blockbuster film like “The First Avenger: Captain America?” It would mean piles of cash! The studios need to jump on this guy before he’s commanding Ryan Reynolds-type paydays.

So, Fuel TV’s Jordan Morris was up to his usual shenanigans when he interviewed the cast of “The Day The Earth Stood Still” last fall. Keanu ReevesĀ  and Jennifer Connelly, consummate professionals and skillful performers, both, played along with him for big laughs to entertain the fans. We’ve known for years that Reeves and Connelly were classy A-Listers who are down to earth, intelligent, witty, and all-around good-spirited.

Well now we’ve got another Hollywood pro to add to the exclusive list of “great interviews” like them: potential star of “The First Avenger: Captain America,” Jon Hamm. We can’t embed the video, but here are some screencaps and a link to the video. Way to go, Jon Hamm. You never stop being awesome.
