Jon Hamm Q2
Just like Don Draper, who built his fortune out of nothing, so did Jon! The actor arrived in Hollywood from Missouri in 1995 with only $150 in his pocket. He even once worked as set designer for a softcore porn production to earn cash and appeared on dating show The Big Date in 1996.
But Mad Men was not his only major TV role. Jon also did the voice of “Donnie Fatson” in 2010 on The Simpsons as well as playing Burt Ridley on the show Providence in 2000, while still waiting tables. Nowadays, he’s also got Bridesmaids and a starring role in Disney’s Million Dollar Arm under his belt.
Little-known fact about Hamm: He told Esquire in 2012 that he owns four eagles (one eagle alone can cost anywhere between $8,000 and $10,000, never mind maintenance) which each have their own personal perches in his backyard. Best of all, he even has an assistant feed them daily—and, weirdly enough, analyze them to see which looks like Hamm the most each day.
In addition to acting, Hamm also has—no big deal—multi-million dollar endorsement deals with American Airlines and Mercedes, for which he does voiceovers. Draper would be proud.
Jon, who has yet to sign onto a big celebrity fashion endorsement deal, did receive offers from both Fruit of the Loom and Jockey in 2013 after some on-set photos showed a bit more than Hamm would have liked.
