Jon Hamm Just Landed His First Regular TV Role Since ‘Mad Men’
The handsome Jon Hamm has just landed his first regular TV role since Mad Men. He will play an archangel in Amazon’s ‘Good Omens’.
Hamm has been cast as archangel Gabriel, the primary messenger of God, in the upcoming six-part series.
The ‘Mad Men’ star confessed to being a big fan of the original novel, but thought it could never be filmed. “I read ‘Good Omens’ almost 20 years ago,” he said. “I thought it was one of the funniest, coolest books I’d ever read. It was also, obviously, unfilmable. Two months ago Neil sent me the scripts, and I knew I had to be in it.”
BBC Studios, the production arm of U.K. pubcaster BBC, is producing “Good Omens.” It will bow on the Amazon Prime Video streaming service in 2019, and then run on BBC Two in the U.K.
