Jon Hamm

Outside of his powerful, dramatic work on the AMC series "Mad Men," the dashing Jon Hamm has been stretching his comedic chops to great effect. Aside from guest appearances on "30 Rock" and "Saturday Night Live," the big screen has seen Hamm bring laughs in Bridesmaids and Friends with Kids earlier this year. Thankfully, he's not showing any signs of stopping his comedy onslaught. Not only is he slated to star with Melissa McCarthy in Dumb Jock for director Paul Feig, but now Showbiz 411 (via The Playlist) says he's joining comedian Larry David and Superbad director Greg Mottola for an untitled, improvised comedy.

PLot etails are being kept under wraps for a comedy that will be partially improvised, but apparently Hamm is playing a character that is described as a nemesis to Larry David, who is playing a character not unlike himself (I know, it's shocking). Mottola has been busy working on the pilot for the Aaron Sorkin scripted HBO series "The Newsroom," but I'm glad the director is getting back to big screen comedy, especially with people like David and Hamm. This should make for one hell of a comedy match-up, and I can't wait to see who else joins the cast. We'll do our best to keep you posted.
