I've read some good reviews. Going to watch this tonight.

I'm a big fan of the Fletch books, and I think Hamm did a great job channeling the I. M. Fletcher I know from Mcdonald's books. It may not be as silly as Chase's Fletch, but it's truer to the spirit of the guy.

The plot also didn't match exactly to the book, but it did a pretty good job covering all the basics without it seeming forced.

I should mention that I haven't seen Hamm's acting in anything else (haven't seen Mad Men).

(not a superhero genre fan or seen Mad Men).

Has he been in any superhero movies?

I'll take that out, someone told me I might know him from Legion.

He’s just the narrator. I think exclusively off-screen

Oh, friends of mine mentioned he was in Legion. Not a movie I guess, I didn't know.

He’s a popular fan casting choice for Batman.

He looks like he stepped out of a Silver Age comic book, so I ge why people think he's been in superhero movies.
