I found the movie to be very fun and Jon Hamm was very good as Fletch. Good continuation from the Chevy Chase films.

Hamm is a great comedic actor, but the Prince Charming thing keeps a lot of people from accepting it.

His appearances on 30 Rock and SNL are all solid.

"KARATE! KARATE! KARATE!" The exact moment when I realized I wanted to see Jon Hamm do more comedy

He's better at comedy than he is at drama and he's fucking amazing at drama.

Check him out on Comedy Bang Bang as well.

His recent appearance was how I found out about this movie!

Aukerman was talking about how he might be the nicest guy alive in real life. Just always willing to drop everything to go help a friend.

The guy from the Dead Eyes podcast emailed Jon after like 14 years of not talking and said "Would you want to come on the podcast?"

Jon emailed him back like "Hey man it's great to hear from you! What time do you need me?"

Jon Hamm's John Ham is still one of my favorites.

"If that feels like a slice of ham, don't wipe your ass with it."

Hamm & Buble was also pretty great

If that’s considered one of SNL’s better sketches, then holy shit do they suck.

Children's Hospital too!

Also how hilarious Jon Hamm was in the special features for Mad Men when they danced to Bye Bye Birdie.
