It seems like a match made in heaven: The year's most celebrated comedic TV actress and one of the most lauded dramatic actors who's also surprisingly funny, joining up for an episode of 30 Rock. I've been eagerly awaiting any information about Jon Hamm's guest appearance on the show, and now I've got good news: The first video clip of Hamm's appearance has arrived.
Hamm will be around for at least three episodes playing Dr. Baird, Liz's neighbor who just happens to be, oh, you know, kind of the perfect man. I mean, he likes pie and baking, and he looks like Jon Hamm. What could be better?
The clip is cute — complete with a well-timed "I want to go to there" — but I'm also a big fan of their video interviews, where they talk about how the pairing came to be. Hamm gets a little verklempt talking about Fey's good looks about halfway through this interview clip, while Fey calls Hamm "the handsomest living human at the moment." Aww!
Hamm's first episode airs Feb. 5. To check out the clip, just read more.
