Jon Hamm Joins ‘Sucker Punch’ Cast

Any Mad Men fans out there? Should be, since it's the best show in television right now. Jon Hamm (Don Draper on the AMC series) is now joining the cast of Zack Snyder's highly-anticipated Sucker Punch. He simply plays a man called "High Roller", with no synopsis available. He accompanies Vanessa Hudgens, Emily Browning, Jamie Chung, Jena Malone, Abbie Cornish and Carla Gugino. However, his role will be a minor one. Hamm is currently filming season three of his über-popular show Mad Men and will head to Boston in September to shoot Ben Affleck's directorial follow-up to Gone Baby Gone.

I'm not skeptical on his role in Sucker Punch at all. Jon Hamm is a crazy-good actor and I can't wait to see him in this. My only worry is that Punch will disappoint, similar to Snyder's highly-awaited Watchmen last March. So it might not fully portray Hamm's talent. Although Sucker Punch is not based on a comic book or a graphic novel, so it may be good. I still can't picture him seriously, though. I'm still laughing at that "John Hamm's 'John Ham'" sketch he was on when he hosted SNL.

Sucker Punch rolls to theaters March 25th, 2011.
