A dobry cover from Jon Hamm for Russia’s GQ.

“If you have a dog, forget about it. It will crush you.”
–Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, on the monsoon bucketloads of tears he’s cried over watching Marley & Me, to People magazine.
Mad Men is everyone with a brain’s favorite well-written show in the USA. It’s set in the hard-bitten days, where it was totally okay to grab your secretary’s derriere for inspiration if business was lulling a bit at the office. Men were men. Women existed to support that. Their breasts too.
Mad Men’s Jon Hamm has been described as an ”Alpha Male” here in the US by Details magazine who provides ‘role models’ of masculinity to sell good looking tech gadgets in glossing pages, pretty much.
Which is weird because my Uncle has a stud boar goat herd (prize-winning in Australia and New Zealand), called Alpha. Everyone I know whose health-concious loves taking Omega 3 fish oil pills every day (Dr Sears fish oil pills are best); so between the alpha word and the omega word reference, I guess we have the masculinity spectrum of A-Z sorted on this blog today.
Anyway, there’s nothing like a talk-show host, needing some blood when his competition is a tea party protest pin-up boy, and we all know how the tea party are rocking the primary races right now on the political scene. Glenn Beck is the Republican’s hero to give CPR to the GOP’s left-over Post-Bush carcus. (Necessary, if we are to believe in democracy at all in America, to have at least two robust political parties, right?). But with Glenn being given this role for the U.S, poor Jon Stewart ‘s ratings need a bit of a boost, so what does he do? He brings a very unlikely ring in, to get the popularity stakes up to speed. Odd, because I would have gone with Christina Hendricks for ratings one-upmanship-ness purposes. Because Hendricks is 3 American celebrities all bundled up in one fire-engine red, alarmingly petite waist line.
But its nice to see that Stewart and Hamm have a lol sense of humor. You need to be a sport in these times. It’s totally on the political agenda here in the US of A.
Here’s Lainey on the topic: “As I’ve noted many times, I LOVE Jon Stewart. He is set to record daily on pvr. And I’ve been missing him for two weeks. But Sarah from Cinesnark bbm’d me last night while I was waiting on a carpet for, ugh, Ryan Phillippe. I was on douche duty and she was watching Stewart with Jon Hamm and totally charmed. Both of them I mean. Sarah and Stewart. (more…)

First Hugh Jackman’s star lead in Wolverine, created a new action hero, in Ryan Reynolds who picked up the Wolverine spin off series in development. (See: WOLVERINE SPINS US RITE ROUND WITH A 2ND SPIN OFF FOR RYAN REYNOLDS).
Now Jackman has done it again with young Taylor Kitcsh, who also starred with him, in the movie with Reynolds. Diseny announced that Taylor Kitsch will lead their new film franchise in the title role fo J . (See: DISNEY PICKS TAYLOR KITSCH TO GIVE ROBERT PATTINSON AND ZAC EFRON A RUN AT THE BOX OFFICE).
Congratulations to last years Sexiest Man Alive, Mr Hugh Jackman for his contribution in Hollywood, at allowing his Aussie box office appeal, to rub off on Hollywood’s two new leading men, for film franchises to keep California running.
Nice one Hugh! Your fellow Aussie buddy, the late Heath Ledger would have been proud of you for that! You truly are the King Maker of the next male box office franchise star! Props!
Box office wars have just heated up in Hollywood for films that star hunky leading men. Disney knows that now that Zac Efron has left Disney to star in other studios films and with Robert Pattinson being a strong box office contender in Twilight for summit entertainment, that it needs a big new Hollywood hunk to carry Disney into the future.
Hollywood Gossip columnist, Ted Casablanca, thinks that Robert Pattison is People Magazine’s next choice for Sexiest Man Alive in 2009. Last year, the title went to Australia’s Hugh Jackman who works out six days a week.
Should Twilight’s Pattinson, take out the title, or should he endure like most Hollywood male stars until they’re at least in their 30s for the title?

The New York Post’s page six reports that Scorcese’s short list includes: Johnny Depp, James Franco, Jake Gyllenhaal, Harry Connick Jr. , Jon Hamm, Michael Buble, Mark Wahlberg and Justin Timberlake. Scorcese demonstrates the art of how great press, always precedes a great film before a single frame has been shot of a hit movie. This film is already on its way to being a blockbuster biopic. Nice one.
