Jon Hamm agrees to star in ‘Bridesmaids’ without contract in ‘favor’ to Kristen Wiig
It’s been over 11 years since we saw Jon Hamm’s hilarious side in ‘Bridesmaids’ – proving his acting toolbox isn’t just a Don Draper-esque character .
The Emmy-winning actor had a fairly prominent role in the 2011 blockbuster. But to the surprise of many, Hamm revealed that his character in the film didn’t really get anything.
The film features Ham’s character Ted, the protagonist of Kristen Wiig, whom Anne Walker falls in love with and “friends with benefits.”
Hamm is the playboy type in the movie because Annie always misses the more serious connection between the two. Ted did not return, and she was also interested in having sex with Annie.
But while Hama’s supporting role in the film proved to be one of the film’s most beloved scenes, the actor recently revealed that he agreed to star in the film without seeing the script or signing a contract.
“I made the movie before that part came out, and before I made the script, I said yes to him. And [my] The agents said, “Oh, well, damn. How did you know we wanted money? I was like, ‘Don’t worry.Let me play with my friends, Hamm said SiriusXM “Pop Culture Honor Award for Jessica Shaw”.
The “Mad Men” star said he couldn’t say no to Wiig after they struck up a friendship while hosting “SNL” in 2010.
“We watched a few skits together and we got along like we were in a burning house, and she said, ‘Can you be in my movie? Please appear in my movie. You know, no one knew it was going to be a global success. But I knew it would be fun. With this cast in particular, I thought, “Of course, of course. Are you kidding? Thanks for the question. Of course I will.
In the film, Wiig stars as a baker trying to plan a wedding for his best friend Lillian (played by Saturday Night Live friend Maya Rudolph). Wiig’s role rivals that of Lillian’s wealthy young friend Helen (Rose Byrne).
The blockbuster also stars comedic talents like Melissa McCarthy, Rebel Wilson, Chris O’Dowd, Wendy McClendon-Covey and Allie Kemper.
“I drive most of the time [my agents] Crazy because I promise everything, you know? I’m always on other people’s podcasts or other shows,” Hamm continued. “But that’s what I like to do. I love interacting with the people I work with and have had amazing and fun experiences there.
“Things like this become other things. You know, things like this are unmeasurable.”
