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)

IFC Scoops Up All the Good Comedies http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/ifc-scoops-up-all-the-good-comedies/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/ifc-scoops-up-all-the-good-comedies/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I was pretty vocal with my disappointment that David Cross's "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret" wouldn't air on American television. I mean, c'mon, those lucky Brits have the world on a string -- awesome weather, those Jedward guys, and unsurpassed prevention of prostitute murder. Well, it was rumored before and now it's official. Beginning this fall, IFC will air David Cross's fish out of water comedy as well as two other very funny series. A TV version of The Onion News Network (Winter 2011) and the Kids in the Hall reunion series "Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town" (August 2010) have earned slots on the channel's schedule. Elsewhere, Comedy Central will be airing reruns of "Krod Mandoon" and "Naked Trucker & T-Bone's Show" ad nauseum. (Time)
