Jon Hamm is sharing his thoughts on where his Mad Men character Don Draper would be today… which he believes to be six feet under.
The 45-year-old actor, who won an Emmy for his work on the final season of the AMC series, opened up on The Rich Eisen Show.
It was hinted in the series finale that Don Draper came up with the iconic Coke jingle, but we weren’t given much insight into his future.
“He’d be in his 80s (now) and there ain’t no way that guy is getting into his 80s without a massive lifestyle shift, which maybe he did at the end of the show, but I don’t think that stuck,” Jon said. “I don’t think that zen moment of understanding anything really stuck.”
“I thought it was a very poetic, very nice way to end the show, and also very cryptic, which sticks in the realm of the show’s vocabulary anyway” he added about how the show ended. “It’s nice to talk about a show you like and now have it have to be spoon feed to you.”
