How Does Jon Hamm Unwind After Playing Don Draper on Mad Men?

Originally posted 04/01/2015 01:20PM

For Jon Hamm, the best way to leave behind his Mad Men character's shudder-worthy on-screen drama is to wash it off, literally.

"I've certainly had a lot of awkward moments as Don Draper," Hamm, 44, tells PEOPLE. "There's a lot of bad behavior. It's not fun to play, and it's probably not fun to watch."

12 Songs Given Second Lives as Famous TV Show Themes

Mad Men is ending, and while the show's opening credits are inseparable from RJD2's haunting theme, there was a time when that beat was known only as "A Beautiful Mine," by RJD2 and rapper Aceyalone.

Matthew Weiner originally wanted a Beck song to play as the show's opening theme, but the singer turned down every offer from the show's producers. Weiner was driving and listening to NPR one day when he heard "A Beautiful Mine" played as segue music between two stories and was immediately struck by it, though the version that ultimately was used was so different from the original that RJD2 didn't recognize it when he first heard it. He's probably okay with it now, though.

Jon Hamm and Don Draper have a lot in common.

Just like the Mad Men ad exec he plays on his hit AMC drama, Hamm started with nothing before skyrocketing to the top of his profession later in life.

"This will be 20 years that I've been in Los Angeles," the 44-year-old told reporters Wednesday while doing press for the final episodes of Mad Men.

Who Gave Jon Hamm Advice on Letting Go of Mad Men?

Originally posted 03/23/2015 12:25PM

Jon Hamm has already admitted he got teary while filming the final episode of Mad Men, so it's only natural the actor might hope to find comfort in the advice of someone who'd been through a similar experience.

Unfortunately for Hamm, a fellow AMC veteran gave crystal-clear advice that the path ahead could be rocky.

The actor, 44, reveals in the April issue of GQ (on newsstands March 31) that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston was blunt with his advice: "It's hard, man. It's hard to let it go. It'll hit you a couple of different ways at different times."
