Jon Hamm Was Ellie Kemper’s High School Drama Teacher.

Jon Hamm Talks Playing Don Draper: 'You Want To Wash It Off'

Uh, I would like to enroll in Ellie Kemper’s high school, PLZ.

While on a panel discussing her hit Netflix show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, actress Ellie Kemper gushed about her high school drama teacher….WHO WAS JON HAMM.

“He was not ugly,” Schmidt, 35, told reporters of Hamm at the Television Critics Association panel on Tuesday. “He was a wonderful teacher.”

Hamm, 44, had attended Kemper’s high school and returned from college to teach for a year, the actress said. “I was in ninth grade and he taught me the improv section of my theater class, and everyone loved him,” she said.

Years later, they had a high school reunion of sorts when Hamm was cast on Kimmy Schmidt as Rev. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne.

“When they told us that he would be playing the reverend, it was fantastic. But I was a little scared,” Kemper said. “I think there’s still a teacher-student dynamic, and acting with him was a little bit nerve-wracking just because I felt like he was still grading me on some level. But he’s a wonderful man and it was a lot of fun.”

Wow, I love both of these actors so much, but how weird that they had this student/teacher relationship. And who comes back from college to teach for a year in high school? A lot of this makes me confused. Aroused…and confused.

Would you want Jon Hamm as your high school drama teacher?

Jon Hamm And Jennifer Westfeldt Broke Up!

Jon Hamm And Jennifer Westfeldt Broke Up!

After being by each other’s side for a whopping sixteen years, Mad Men actor Jon Hamm and his long-time love Jennifer Westfeldt have gone their separate ways. Sad!

A source close to the couple said, “The relationship just ran its course.”

One may think that the relationship came to an end because of his rehab treatment for alcohol abuse, but that wasn’t the case. Star magazine suggests that it was Hamm’s reluctance to have a baby with the actress.

The actor previously said, “I don’t have a driving force to have a baby. That said, I’m in a committed relationship, and if it ever came up, I’m not ruling it out.”

The spy added, “Jennifer realized that she and Jon don’t want the same things. So they agreed that it was time to take a step back.”

Jon Hamm: On Googling Himself, Picking Roles and Life after Mad Men

Jon Hamm Talks Playing Don Draper: 'You Want To Wash It Off'

There’s better way to start the weekend than an interview with one of my favorite actors EVER, Mr. Jon Hamm?

The actor had a great interview with Variety this week in front of the second part of the last season of Mad Men. The show is a masterpiece, to be sure, but Hamm never wants you to forget that he’s just a human dude, trying to navigate his career and make a living. You can read the full Variety piece here. Here are some of the highlights:

Playing Don Draper: “Playing this guy does not come without its own difficulties. It’s not fun to live in this guy’s headspace year after year… the darkness in Don has not abated, it’s gotten worse year after year. It’s relentless. And it can be hard on you as a person. I love coming to work; I love the people I work with. But it’s been rough.”

His sudden celebrity was hard: “I think I’m a pretty regular person thrust into incredibly irregular circumstances. It’s weird to get super-famous, super-fast. It’s really hard. In the grand scheme of things, it’s not the hardest thing in the world. It’s not performing heart surgery or breaking big rocks into little rocks. (But) it takes a lot out of you emotionally.”

On never winning an Emmy: “The minute you start crying about not winning awards, it seems a little weird. I’m in a very good group of people who haven’t won. I’ll live.”

His acting capital: “I’m afraid I’ve spent my good acting capital doing silly, nonsensical things. I hope I’ll get another chance to play a part as deep and varied and emotional and real as Don was.”

He’s not yet a movie star: “It’s hard to pick roles, honestly. There’s a certain strata of the Hollywood atmosphere that I’m decidedly not in — it’s Bradley Cooper, Pitt, Affleck, Clooney, Damon. I’m not a proven box office draw, I haven’t won an Oscar. I’m a guy from a TV show a lot of people like. I feel like a very capable actor, but I’m also looking for the thing that will make me feel fulfilled and challenged. If there’s a role I want, and they say, ‘Matt Damon’s interested,’ it’s totally legitimate. I would cast Matt Damon over me, too!”

The internet: “You want to know what’s wrong with you, just Google yourself. The most hateful, horrible things will come up. It’s anonymous, with no accountability. And it all kind of hides under the rubric of free speech.”

The rumors: “Jen and I aren’t married, and that’s something people seize on all the time. They ask, ‘When are you having kids?’ I said it to Tina once, ‘Are you going to have another kid?’ and she said, ‘When is that OK to ask?’ And she’s right. It’s such a personal question and so horribly presumptive. It’s (like) asking, ‘When are you and your husband going to f— again?’ I know, the more I talk about the Internet, the more I sound like an old man standing on his lawn shaking his fist.”

He’s hot, he’s talented, but he’s also so real- almost painfully so.  His presence in Hollywood seems so grounded, don’t you think?
