With Mad Men drawing to a close, Jon Hamm is focusing on his burgeoning film career. What drama is next for the Emmy-winning actor? Well, working with celebrated, critically-lauded director Richard Linklater on a project he’s developing about… a man turned into a cartoon fish.
Linklater’s remake of The Incredible Mr. Limpet was thought to be dead but has violently flopped back to life on the curved floor that is the Hollywood row boat. Zach Galifianakis is still attached to star as a man magically turned into a cartoon fish with Hamm starring opposite him as the evil businessman destroying the ocean floor. This is great news for fans who love the layered and raw performances Hamm made his name with, but also always wanted to see him mime getting slapped in the face with a fish tail that will be added in post.
