Opposites Jon Hamm and Paul Feig Team-Up For Comedy

Tuesday, March 15 by

Jon HammMad Men“) may have been voted Most Handsome in high school. Paul Feig (creator of “Freaks and Geeks“) was probably voted Most Likely To Write A TV Show About How Shitty High School Was For Nerds. However, as Paula Abdul and a cartoon cat instruct us: opposites attract.

On the set of the Feig directed Bridesmaids, he hit it off with Hamm. Now the two are working on some kinda top-secret-for-now project. Comedy nerds, start heaping tons of praise on this project right now. Speaking of “comedy nerds,” that’s how Feig described Hamm in a recent interview:

“[Hamm] is such a comedy nerd. He will quote lines from Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy. You’re quoting something even I can’t quote! He’s always wanted to do comedy. One of the next things I’m developing a project for him to star in. I think he’s so funny. He’s like Cary Grant to me.”

It’s pretty awesome that Jon Hamm loves Brain Candy. If I was passing him on the street and said “cat on my head,” he might yell “cat on my head” back at me, rather than give me a freaked-out glare and walk in the other direction. I guess you can’t judge a nerdy book by it’s handsome cover. (Collider)
