Don Draper would be long gone by now if he were an actual person, as far as Jon Hamm is concerned.
The Emmy-winning Mad Men star dropped by the Rich Eisen Show for a recent interview and said it was his opinion that while Draper did come up with the iconic Coke jingle, which is hinted at in the series finale, he would not have changed his destructive lifestyle.
“He’d be in his 80s (now) and there ain’t no way that guy is getting into his 80s without a massive lifestyle shift, which maybe he did at the end of the show, but I don’t think that stuck,” Hamm told Eisen. “I don’t think that zen moment of understanding anything really stuck.”
Mad Men ran on AMC from 2007 to 2015.
Hamm also said he loved the ambiguity of how the series concluded.
“I thought it was a very poetic, very nice way to end the show, and also very cryptic, which sticks in the realm of the show’s vocabulary anyway” Hamm said. “It’s nice to talk about a show you like and not have it have to be spoon fed to you.”
