Jon Hamm to host SNL in January

Jon Hamm's John Ham from SNLWe just finished recording our podcast where we interviewed Rich Sommer about Mad Men (what, you think we talked to him about Tiger Woods?), and when the subject came around to leading man Jon Hamm, Sommer mentioned that Hamm will be hosting Saturday Night Live in January.

That's great news; one of the funnier episodes of the last few seasons was Hamm's hosting stint last year. "Jon Hamm's John Ham" alone would have made the episode a classic, but his James Mason impersonation, among other sketches, made it a near-classic.

From what I've heard -- from none other than Matt Weiner himself -- Hamm does a mean Tim Gunn impression. Let's hope that Project Runway has started by the time Hamm comes on SNL so he can break it out. It's not a big stretch to go from James Mason to Tim Gunn, so I'd imagine it's as killer as advertised.

To whet your appetite, here's the "Jon Hamm's John Ham" sketch:
