“Mad Men” star Jon Hamm has a small role in the upcoming comedy “Bridesmaids”. “Freaks and Geeks” creator and filmmaker Paul Feig, the director of “Bridesmaids”, tells The Los Angeles Times that he and Hamm are likely to team up again shortly on a new comedy.
“He’s always wanted to do comedy. One of the next things I’m developing a project for him to star in. I think he’s so funny. He’s like Cary Grant to me” says Feig.
Feig is a fan of Hamm’s comedy skills in the likes of “30 Rock” and SNL, and calls the actor a comedy nerd who “will quote lines from ‘Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy.’ You’re quoting something even I can’t quote!”
