I don’t watch “Mad Men”. Not because I think it’s a bad show, but I feel I’m not cool enough to watch it. Jon Hamm is the coolest motherfucker alive and now it looks like he’ll be making Zack Snyder’s upcoming flick “Sucker Punch” even cooler. You know, because “Sucker Punch’s” filmmaker, premise, and cast weren’t cool enough in the first place.
Break out a cigarette and hit the jump for more details.
We currently know that the premise revolves around a girl (Emily Browning) in the 1950s-set who is confined to a mental institution by her stepfather, who intends to have her lobotomized in five days. She and her friends enter an alternate reality where they begin planning an escape. Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish and Carla Gugino are all co-starring and now Hamm is on board. No details about Hamm’s character are currently know except his name:
I don’t know anything else about the character but I can’t imagine anyone but Jon Hamm playing that role. I have to imagine that Snyder created the character, named the character “High Roller”, got his producer on the phone and said “I need Jon Hamm to play High Roller. Pay him whatever he wants.” That payment would then include a carton of cigarettes and a finely-tailored suit. Yes, I do have trouble separating reality from fiction and it has gotten me in trouble.
As my anticipation for “Sucker Punch” continues to grow, I must to return to my studies about how to be cooler.
