And I am eating my words. Ausiello is reporting that Jon Hamm is in "advanced talks to do a multi-episode arc on 30 Rock,"
and that he will be playing Lemon's neighbor and love interest. Oh my! After doing nothing but bitch incessantly to anyone who would listen
about how much I hate this season's obsession with stuntcasting, I have to admit I'm totally checkmated by this news. Jon Hamm is perfect for 30 Rock
, and the rest of you yahoo showrunners out there looking for guest stars, take note: this is how you do it. Oprah? No. Lindsay Lohan? Double no. Us loyal viewers will be perfectly fine with stuntcasting (or at least, we'll be more willing to adjust to it) as long as it's a legitimate actor who's going to show up and, oh I don't know, actually play a character and do so effectively, rather than just show up and phone it in in order to cash a paycheck and desperately cling to his or her fleeting fame. Just saying. Anyway, how do you feel about this? I can't imagine anybody wouldn't be excited for it, but maybe I'm wrong.
