Jon Hamm Takes on the Role of a Lifetime in Broadway's Oh, Hello
Comics Nick Kroll and John Mulaney’s brought their production of Oh, Hello—the acclaimed play about old men living in New York, based on sketches from Comedy Central’s Kroll Show—to the Broadway stage last night. Among the eager audience members sat Jon Hamm, whose navy suit quietly awaited its scene-stealing moment.
The Mad Men alum looked dapper as ever on opening night, charming in plaid-on-plaid with a navy suit and patterned button down. But of course he brought his fashion A-game, it was his big night too…
According to Oh, Hello’s playbill, both Jon Hamm and his Mad Men co-star John Slattery are understudies for the two lead roles. Obviously a prank influenced by Hamm, the actor’s bio skims past the vast majority of his career, mentioning only college productions at The University of Missouri.
At the premiere, Kroll and Mulaney joked about keeping their “understudies” locked in the theater attic until they were needed.
Hamm, a team player, discussed the mighty need for his presence—which, um, is always needed, if you ask us.
