This Sunday marks the premiere of Mad Men‘s seventh and final season on AMC and the series is going to have steep competition when it comes to getting viewers on an insanely competitive Sunday night. With Game of Thrones owning the landscape on HBO, Mad Men will be looking to hold its own and AMC is fully behind their series.
Another series on AMC could see a col crossover in the near future though as The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman recently joked about Mad Men star Jon Hamm becoming a villain on the show and seemed to say the job was his if he wanted it.
He’s not tall enough! That’s a joke. I think Jon Hamm would be perfect. I think after ‘Mad Men’ has run, Jon Hamm is going to have a Tom Hanks-level film career, so I don’t think he’ll be coming back to television anytime soon. Although that would be cool!
Cool is an understatement but it’s also a pipe dream of an idea. Kirkman clearly isn’t truly considering Hamm for a role on the show but fans of both Mad Men and The Walking Dead can still dream about what Don Draper would be like if he ever fought the living dead.
