Jon Hamm takes a selfie with his Don Draper wax figure


What's the first thing Jon Hamm did when he saw his wax figure unveiled Friday at New York's Madame Tussauds?

Took a selfie, of course.

"That's a no-brainer. I'm probably not done doing that either," he told The Associated Press.

The wax figure is decked out in a debonair-looking grey suit. Ironically, Hamm, who stars in the AMC drama "Mad Men," arrived at the unveiling wearing a grey suit.

"This is happenstance, but it is kind of crazy how kind of identical we decided to dress. I'm referring to him as a human being as if he dressed himself," he said.


Hamm said he posed for the figure last year. It took months to craft the figure.

As Hamm posed for photos next to the figure, he also joked about the stoic expression on the mannequin saying "a lot of people would say this kind of describes my acting (on 'Mad Men'). A lot of waxy stares, a lot of silent brooding."

Hamm was joined by his longtime girlfriend, actress Jennifer Westfeldt, who kept marveling at how uncanny the figure looked like him.

The 43-year-old actor is in the middle of a publicity blitz for his new movie, "Million Dollar Arm," which opens May 16.

"Mad Men" is airing the first part of its seventh and final season.


These 6 Madame Tussauds wax figures are pretty terrible


It’s a big deal for celebrities when they’re cast in wax by Madame Tussauds — and for the most part, the finished products range from pretty similar to straight-up uncanny.

Jon Hamm’s the latest star to get the waxy treatment, and the results are quite respectable.

But what happens when the Madame gets it wrong? Things get ugly. Literally.

Case in point:



Britney Spears: Something’s off in the face.
Taylor Swift: So close, but she’s looking a little too Barbie-esque.
Robert Pattinson: Is this supposed to be him when he’s 40 (and a different person)?
Justin Timberlake: OH GOD MAKE IT STOP.
