Hamm played ad executive Draper on the long-running period drama, which ended in 2015 after seven seasons. The cast also included Elisabeth Moss, Vincent Kartheiser, January Jones, Christina Hendricks, Aaron Staton, Rich Sommer, Kiernan Shipka, Jessica Paré, Kevin Rahm, Christopher Stanley, and Jay R. Ferguson.
On a recent episode of The Rich Eisen Show, Hamm said he thinks Draper would be long gone by now:
He’d be in his 80s (now) and there ain’t no way that guy is getting into his 80s without a massive lifestyle shift, which maybe he did at the end of the show, but I don’t think that stuck. I don’t think that zen moment of understanding anything really stuck.”
And what did Hamm think of the series ending in general?
I thought it was a very poetic, very nice way to end the show, and also very cryptic, which sticks in the realm of the show’s vocabulary anyway. It’s nice to talk about a show you like and not have it have to be spoon fed to you.”
