Mad Men star joins The Morning Show A-list cast

Jon Hamm has joined the upcoming third series of The Morning Show.

The 51-year-old Hollywood actor, who shot to fame after his starring role as Don Draper in Mad Men, recently played Cyclone in Top Gun’s highly anticipated sequel Maverick.

He will next play corporate titan Paul Marks, who sets his sights on UBA News, alongside Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Billy Crudup in the hit Apple TV+ series.

The casting means Hamm, who is nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Publicity after his role in Everyone But Jon Hamm, joins Apple for the first time having never starred in a project for the tech giant before.

This year, The Morning Show earned Emmy nominations for Witherspoon and Crudup alongside guest star Marcia Gay Harden after its second season, which first aired in September 2021.

The show ended with Aniston’s character Alex Levy contracting Covid-19 after visiting Mitch Kessler, played by Steve Carell, in Italy.

Filming for the third series is expected to begin this month.

Hamm’s other notable credits include the role of Buddy in the British blockbuster Baby Driver and Archangel Gabriel in the Amazon Prime Video TV drama, Good Omens.

He is also expected to lead the voice cast of the Fox animated comedy Grimsburg.
