Jon Hamm Plays A Handsome Hologram In New 'Marjorie Prime' Movie
Jon Hamm hasn't taken on many roles since he left Don Draper at the end of Mad Men in 2015, but he's got a promising one coming to the big screen in August. Hamm will portray Walter, a hologram, in Marjorie Prime; the Michael Almereyda film was adapted from Jordan Harrison’s Pulitzer-Prize nominated play.
The plot centers around Lois Smith's Marjorie and her now-deceased husband, Walter, who is living out their memories alongside her in the form of some weird Black Mirror-esque "artificially intelligent rendering," according to EW.
At the Sundance premiere earlier this year, Hamm joked that he went a little method for the role, with everyone on set not being able to physically interact with him.
Tim Robbins and Geena Davis are also in the film, which has a limited release in New York and L.A. starting August 18th.
This isn't the first time Hamm has entered the world of dark sci-fi, in 2014 he starred in a techno-paranoia-fueled Black Mirror Christmas special.
