Jon Hamm’s Next Role May Be His Strangest One Yet
It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s a Holohamm!
Jon Hamm is in talks to appear as a hologram (yes, you read that correctly) in an upcoming adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Marjorie Prime.
Deadline is reporting that the Mad Men star is in negotiations to co-star in the end-of-life sci-fi drama as a holographic recreation of the titular character’s husband in his prime. Marjorie is an aging violinist in cognitive decline, and is visited by holograms of her deceased husband Walter as a way of clinging to rapidly fading memories.
Hamm has been keeping busy since Don Draperohm-ed his way out of our lives, with recent appearances in Netflix reboot of Wet Hot American Summerand the upcoming spy comedy Keeping Up With The Joneses. All eyes will be on Hamm at the Emmy Awards next month to see if he can finally nab the golden statue that has long eluded him.
Michael Almereyda wrote the Marjorie Prime screenplay adaptation and will also direct. Production begins in October.
