Hamm once auditioned to play the role of Sandy Cohen on The OC.
He was around 31-32 years old. Harry Hamlin was also there for the audition.
The role of Sandy Cohen eventually went to Peter Gallagher who is 16 years older than Hamm.
Hamm would have auditioned to play Dan Humphrey’s dad Rufus if he did not get 'mad men' role.
His “in-between” age made auditioning for television roles pretty tough.
Hamm never looked young enough to be in high school, so he missed out on all the early WB shows.
But he wasn’t old enough to be the dads either.
