JON HAMM AND ELIZABETH MOSS: MIPCOM MATES

Mad Men has taken over France!

Elisabeth Moss and Jon Hamm, stars of the cult hit TV series, were up bright and early this morning (October 5) as they attended a photocall for during Mipcom at the Martinez Hotel in Cannes.

Meanwhile, Jon says he would like to have a career like George Clooney because he can easily work on a number of movie genres.

“We already have a perfectly serviceable George Clooney, but that’s certainly someone whose career I would love to emulate because he’s been able to work in various genres and walk the line between drama and comedy,” he tells Total Film. “He also got started very late in life because ER came when he was well into his thirties, so he bounced around, not unlike me, from show to show and failed pilot to failed pilot, and then ER happened and he blew up.”

However, despite wanting a career like gorgeous George, The Town star admits acting was not always his first love and he spent his childhood dreaming of working under the sea with fish and in space.

He says: “I wanted to be a marine biologist, a teacher, and astronaut and an actor, and my parents never said, ‘You can’t do that,’ or, ‘That’s not realistic.’ So when I decided to move to New York and try out acting on a whim, they didn’t stop me. It turned out to be something I loved and I’ve been lucky enough to be able to do this for a job, so far.”
