Jon Hamm Talks About Years of Auditioning Before Landing 'Mad Men'

Jon Hamm steps out to run some errands on Thursday (April 2) in Los Angeles.

The 44-year-old actor recently chatted with EW about landing Mad Men after years of auditioning.

“I knew that I had some sort of baseline of talent, ability, and chutzpah and confidence,” Jon said. “But then knowing how to get anyone to pay attention is the big mystery. So I just kept auditioning. I kept showing up and I kept trying. And I kept trying to push down the voice that was saying, ‘You’re terrible. Someone’s better than you. They’re going to give the part to the other guy.’ And elevate the part of me that said, like, ‘You’re worth it. You should be here.’”
