Liz Lemon to date Don Draper

Fey, HammOK, so his name isn't going to be Don Draper, unless Liz Lemon finds a time machine at NBC and goes back in time, but it looks like Mad Men's Jon Hamm is coming to 30 Rock.

Hamm is in negotiations to play Liz's boyfriend on several episodes of the NBC sitcom later this season. This is coming off of Hamm's great turn as host of Saturday Night Live last week. The worlds of SNL, Mad Men, and 30 Rock are coming together, and it's all kinds of awesomeness.

Of course, this means that Liz and her new boyfriend will break up at some point, since he has to go back to Sterling Cooper, circa 1962. Plus we have another SNL alum, Jason Sudeikis, waiting in the wings for Lemon some day, if Floyd ever comes back. But this could bring a lot of attention to two fantastic shows that don't get the best ratings.

This is rather wild. My favorite sitcom and my favorite drama coming together in a way I would never had expected. This will hopefully tide me over until Mad Men returns in 2009.

OMG OMG OMG this sounds so extremely good I can't wait to see it.

I'd love to see Hamm out of his usual Mad Men surroundings. He was too in-character on SNL if you ask me. There has to be more about this guy.

Aw c'mon! I want Sudekis back as Floyd.

How can you not like a guy who uses Ghostbusters for evil.

Also my favorite comedy and favorite drama at the moment. How great. Now we don't have to wait an entire year to see more of Jon Hamm. Tina Fey is having a heck of a year.

Nice! Hopefully he won't turn out to be another long-lost cousin.

I thought Jon Hamm did an excellent job on SNL - especially his Don Drapers Guide to Picking Up Women. This is one guest spot for 30 Rock I am actually excited for.
