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:

Zach BraffWith a new Scrubs contract in hand and a movie to promote, you know that Zach Braff will be on the interview circuit very soon. But part of that circuit will be hosting the season finale of Saturday Night Live on May 19, with musical guest Maroon 5.

Braff is going to be promoting his movie The Ex, which co-stars Jason Bateman, Amanda Peet, and SNL cast member Amy Poehler (she's been in a lot of movies lately, hasn't she?). It's the first time Braff has hosted SNL, and I think he'll do well. As all Scrubs fans know, he's good at goofy physical comedy, and I don't think he'll be fazed by the live setting, the cue cards, and everything else that trip up other hosts. By then, he should also know the fate of Scrubs, so we may see a very happy Zach on stage next week.
