JON HAMM (Mason) is best known for his nuanced portrayal of the high-powered advertising executive Don Draper on AMC's award-winning drama series "Mad Men," a role that firmly established him as one of Hollywood's most talented and versatile actors.

"Mad Men" concluded its seventh and final season in 2015.

Hamm's recent credits include starring in Edgar Wright's heist thriller Baby Driver, opposite Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey and Jamie Foxx, and the independent film Marjorie Prime, which made its debut at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and opened in August last year.

Previously, Hamm starred in 20th Century Fox's Keeping Up With the Joneses, opposite Gal Gadot, Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher. In 2015, Hamm loaned his voice to the wildly successful Universal Pictures animated feature Minions, alongside Sandra Bullock and Steve Coogan. Hamm's previous film credits include Disney's Million Dollar Arm, based on a script by Thomas McCarthy and directed by Craig Gillespie; Friends With Kids, written and directed by Jennifer Westfeldt; Bridesmaids, with Kristen Wiig; Ben Affleck's The Town; Zack Snyder's fantasy thriller Sucker Punch; Howl, with James Franco; Shrek Forever After, in which he voiced the character Brogan; The Day the Earth Stood Still, with Keanu Reeves; Westfeldt's Ira & Abby and Kissing Jessica Stein; We Were Soldiers; and the Larry David-penned Clear History for HBO.

Hamm's appearances on the Emmy-winning comedy "30 Rock" from 2009-2012 earned him three Emmy nominations for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. He has also hosted "Saturday Night Live" three times, once in 2008 and twice in 2010 to critical acclaim. In addition to "Mad Men," Hamm also appears in the second season of Netflix's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt," created by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. Hamm played Reverend Richard Wayne Gary Wayne, the senior prophet who fools four women into being held captive for fifteen years while they believe to have survived the apocalypse. The role earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series. His additional television credits include "A Young Doctor's Notebook," a BBC miniseries in which he stars opposite Daniel Radcliffe and which he also executive produced. Hamm first came to audiences' attention in the NBC series "Providence." Signed for a cameo role, he impressed the producers so much that he ended up with an 18-episode run on the series.

A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Hamm received his Bachelor of Arts in English at the University of Missouri-Columbia and currently resides in Los Angeles.
