Thomas Jane Was Thiiiis Close To Playing Don Draper On Mad Men

Jon Hamm is practically synonymous with Mad Men . In fact, it’s nearly impossible to picture the hit show without Jon’s chiseled man-jaw filling the role of Don Draper. But amazingly, he very nearly didn’t get the part.

Jon Hamm is practically synonymous with Mad Men. In fact, it’s nearly impossible to picture the hit show without Jon’s chiseled man-jaw filling the role of Don Draper. But amazingly, he very nearly didn’t get the part. Hamm recently went on Marc Maron’s WTF podcast and admitted that the show’s producers were dead set on having fellow ridiculously handsome dude Thomas Jane in the lead. “I started, literally, on the very, very bottom,” he said. “I couldn’t have had less heat on me.” At that point, his biggest roles were bit parts on CSI: Miami, Providence and Ally McBeal, where he played memorable characters like “Gorgeous Guy At The Bar.” We all remember that one, right?

“Nobody knew who I was,” he continued. “The casting directors didn’t know who I was. I wasn’t on anybody’s lists… The funny thing was, I think they went to Thomas Jane for it, and they were told that Thomas Jane does not do television.” Thomas now acts in the HBO show Hung, so either he had a change of heart, or he was just trying to be polite to the Mad Men peeps. Either way, both play suave debonair dudes who have sex with gorgeous women constantly, so potato-potahto.

It’s still so strange to think of a Mad Men without Jon Hamm. Check out the gallery below for more iconic roles that almost went to someone else!

Snow White Vs. Snow White: Is KStew Going To Be More Badass Than Lily Collins?

On October 6, 2011, in Celeb, Entertainment, Movies, by nadia

By Sabrina Rojas Weiss Granted, there’s a big difference between polished publicity stills and the kind the paps grab while you’re doing a tough scene that requires a fully clothed dunk in the chilly waters of Wales. But we’re going to compare these two anyway: Entertainment Weekly ’s exclusive pics of Lily Collins , Julia Roberts , Army Hammer , Nathan Lane and seven very happy dwarfs versus the recent shots of Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman . Here are three things we’ve learned: 1.) With the gritty, wet look of those KStew pics and the high-color, not-a-hair-out-of-place surreal glamour of the cast of Tarsem Singh’s still untitled movie, it doesn’t seem like we’ll be confusing these movies with each other.

Granted, there’s a big difference between polished publicity stills and the kind the paps grab while you’re doing a tough scene that requires a fully clothed dunk in the chilly waters of Wales. But we’re going to compare these two anyway: Entertainment Weekly’s exclusive pics of Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Army Hammer, Nathan Lane and seven very happy dwarfs versus the recent shots of Kristen Stewart and Chris Hemsworth on the set of Snow White and the Huntsman. Here are three things we’ve learned:

1.) With the gritty, wet look of those KStew pics and the high-color, not-a-hair-out-of-place surreal glamour of the cast of Tarsem Singh’s still untitled movie, it doesn’t seem like we’ll be confusing these movies with each other. We see Lily fighting Nathan Lane, but her battle outfit isn’t anywhere near as roughed up as Kristen’s. Could be her fight is more political than bloody.


2.) Julia Roberts’ Evil Queen’s penchant for high fashion means she needs a mighty entourage — Singh told EW it took 14 people to carry her wedding dress. Judging by the publicity photos of “Huntsman” villainess Charlize Theron, she’s a sleek, streamlined baddy. But in both cases li’l Snow’s got her hands full with some Oscar-winning power.

3.) We’d like to fight by the side of (ahem, NOT be rescued by) either movie’s heroes. Lily’s got the clean-shaven prince Armie Hammer — who looks vulnerable (in a sweet, “we want to protect him” way) as he wields a sword in her honor. But even if it looks like Chris Hemsworth’s huntsman hasn’t had a shower in a while, we’ll just have to figure out how to make him take a dip in the ocean too.

So, tell us, which Snow White would you rather be?

Lady Gaga Goes Mint Blond, Could Front Queen Tour

If there’s any pop star around today that can even hold a candle to illimitable Freddie Mercury , it has to be Lady Gaga . You have the fabulous outfits, the soaring voice, and, to a lesser degree, the teeth. So, it’s not that surprising to hear that Lady Gaga might front Queen for an upcoming tour

If there’s any pop star around today that can even hold a candle to illimitable Freddie Mercury, it has to be Lady Gaga. You have the fabulous outfits, the soaring voice, and, to a lesser degree, the teeth. So, it’s not that surprising to hear that Lady Gaga might front Queen for an upcoming tour. “We talk about going out on the road all the time but there’s a bit of a singer problem to put it mildly,” Queen guitarist Brian May recently told the Daily Express. “I worked with Lady Gaga and she’s very creative and is someone we’ve talked about singing, fronting the band with.” Whoa, whoa, whoa! If Gaga is considering the possibility of singing with other bands, this opens up a whole world of possibilities. Hard-core rocking possibilities.
