Panerai Super-Coolness Jon Hamm

...Emmy Award Winning Best Actor...

Panerai Super-Coolness
Jon Hamm
40mm PAM 00119

John Hamm is one of the coolest guys in the world. He is renowned for playing Donald Drapper on the mega-hit TV show, Mad Men which is returning for its sixth season next month on April, 7th!!!

Ironically, Jon Hamm played my namesake grandfather, Jake Ehrlich Sr. in the recent movie named "Howl". In 2008 People Magazine voted Jon Hamm to be on their list for the sexiest man alive, so it is really cool to see him rockin' his Panerai in these photos.

The Number 1 TV Show Today

In case you are not familiar with MAD MEN, it is probably the best TV show I have ever seen with the exception of The Sopranos–but that should come as no surprise because MAD MEN is produced by Mathew Weiner who was a writer and executive producer on the Sopranos. MAD MEN is about to launch in its 6th season, next month on April 7th of 2013!!!

In 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 MAD MEN won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series Drama and in 2008 Jon Hamm won the Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actor In A Television Series for his performance as Donald Draper. In 2008 MAD MEN received 16 Emmy Award nominations total.

MAD MEN is an American period drama TV series set in the early 1960s. It is about the early days of American advertising on New York's Madison Avenue. [Think: Madison Ad Men=MAD MEN].

MAD MEN is amazing because of the tremendous attention to detail. The Donald Draper character played by Jon Ham was married in earlier seasons to his wife Betty Draper who is played by the amazingly beautiful January Jones. Betty & Donald Drapper were kind of like Ward & June Cleaver meet Bonnie & Clyde. 

MAD MEN explores the deeper, darker side of human character in the most fascinating ways. January Jones character, Betty Draper was simple and complex at the same time. Once you think you have figured her out, you realize you know nothing about her.

Despite the fact that January Jones is the definite hotness, the show also has a character named Joan Harris-Holloway played by Christina Hendricks who, at least in my mind is the super-hotness!!! She is pictured below with Jon Hamm. Ouwwwwchh!!!!!!

I think Christina Hendricks plays her role to the T, and did I mention she is gorgeous!?!!!!

Since MAD MEN takes place in the early sixties, it has a kind of male-chauvinist, Archie Bunker, "When girls were girls and men were men" kind of vibe. If you have no idea what I am talking about, then you have no idea what I am talking about ;-))))

MAD MEN just blows my mind and if you have watched it over the last five seasons you know what I am talking about. If you have not watched it over the last five years, you are in for a great treat because you can watch the episodes back to back to back–kind of like how you can spend a weekend watching the Sopranos.
