Best known for his performance as Don Draper in ‘Mad Men’, Jon Hamm has also starred in movies like ‘The Town’, ‘Sucker Punch’, ‘Bridesmaids’ and Keeping up with the Joneses. He will now be seen in the upcoming movie ‘Baby Driver’.
In ‘Baby Driver’, Jon Hamm stars as ‘Buddy’, a ballistic bank robber who hops on a getaway ride with the ‘Baby’ who is Ansel Elgort.
The actor said:
“It’s definitely not a musical in the grand MGM tradition, but it’s an important element. Music is in 90 percent of the film and drives a big portion of the plot as well.”
Jon Hamm has a very unique and peculiar look in this new movie. This new look was driven by writer and director Edgar Wright who really wanted to play it up. When asked about his makeover for the movie, Jon said:
“I don’t know what it’s called. They shave the sides and then you’ve got a mop on top. I’ve basically had a version of the same haircut for the last decade, so when I got this one I was like, Oh Goodness!”
He also said that changing your hairstyle that much does a lot not only for oneself to inform the character but really washes away any previous persona that you had in the minds of the audience.
