both r10. He looks like hell on and off the show. He's one of those guys that looks handsome from far away, but it's a different story as you get closer and closer
He does look very dissipated and oily this season, but I'm assuming it's makeup for the show.
Nevertheless, I find it very peculiar that his cool character doesn't have sideburns and dry hair by this point in the show's timeine....1968, is it?
Can he still become a movie star or has his time passed by now?
His parents died really young. Maybe he's genetically programmed for premature aging.
He can, but you can't, dear. I saw "Friends With Kids."
The Don and Betty characters are getting bad lighting this season. It goes along with their story lines. Actually, it began season 5 for Betty, season 4 for Don. Check it out--they get lit from low angles.
Jon Hamm has always looked older than his age. Here's what he said about it:
"I came in the Dawson's Creek era; it was all about tiny guys who looked like teenagers, and I haven't looked like a teenager ever," he says. "So I was, like, auditioning to be their dads. At 25."
He is a hot man, and not trying to do anything to "look young". I like that. I'll take him if the rest of you don't want him.
Jon is a guest on "Live with Kelly and Michael" in two days - Wednesday, the 24th.
The one scene where he looked good in the "To Have and To Hold" episode was when he stayed in bed as Megan was leaving the apartment for her soap opera filming.
Mad Men definitely pulls its characters down a notch or two in appearance according to some storyline or theme.
r20, you're reading too much into it. The lighting and makeup probably make him look better. You realize that die-hard viewers who look for metaphor in every line reading and visual element aren't the show's only audience. It also appeals to fraus on a purely soap opera level who want to see their movie star handsome leading man looking as handsome as possible, and the produers know that. And btw, soaps are taped, not filmed.

Actually, nothing on television has been "taped" for over a decade. Soaps are shot on DV.
