Mad Men's Jon Hamm joins up with Zack Snyder's SUCKER PUNCH!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I suppose it had to happen eventually. Zack Snyder couldn't just keep pouring mega-hot women into his next movie... he's gotta have someone there for the ladies and that someone looks to be MAD MEN's Jon Hamm according to Borys Kitt at Hollywood Reporter. Hamm joins a cast pulled out of my own personal heaven including Abbie Cornish, Carla Gugino, Jena Malone, Jamie Chung, Vanessa Hudgens and Emily Browning, playing the lead character. The story on THR gives a little more info on the plot than I had heard, mainly that Browning is placed into a nuthouse by her evil stepfather and is scheduled to undergo a lobotomy. Browning and her (apparently all hot) friends enter some sort of alternate reality to plan her escape. Hamm's character isn't revealed, but he's apparently called HIGH ROLLER. I'm very much looking forward to seeing a Zack Snyder original and whatever the hell that ends up being. What about you? -Quint Follow Me On Twitter

    JON HAMM for SUPERMAN idiots

    by wookie1972

    I said before he's too old, but I've come around, Hamm is perfect. In fact, some of the new Supes art coming out from DC looks like it was modelled on him. And while you're at it, DC should get Warburton as Shazaam. Can't we make them do it?

  • Aug. 19, 2009, 1:05 p.m. CST

    CaptainAxis is like Beetlejuice

    by wookie1972

    He only comes if you say the magic words "Zack Snyder is a talentless fratboy hack who was too dumb to understand Watchmen." Notice, however, that I didn't actually say that, so CaptainAxis, please don't come around, I don't have the energy to argue.

    John Hamm should team up with Billy Cheese!

    Hot girls in this film,

    by #1 Zero

    My guess is that the hot girls will be uglied down for their real life asylum scenes and then made very hot looking and superhero like for their fantasy scenes. But they'd probably look hot even uglied down a bit for the more realistic scenes. Movie ugly and movie normal looking is like twenty times more attractive than real life ugly and real life normal looking. Also Hamm would make a great superman, if you look at Alex Ross's superman art you can draw the comparison. He'd be sort of a fifties throwback rather than Brandon Routh's Abercrombie and Fitch possibly gay version of superman.

    Hamm can do light

    by Jor-El23

    See 30 ROck and SNL. I also think he'd make a good Lantern, or a good Shazam

    Done arguing over Watchmen

    by CaptainAxis

    I wasn't overly interested in this movie, but the addition of Jon Hamm definitely helps. I'm not a Snyder fanboy but I do think he deserves a lot more credit than some of you give him, so I defend the guy when I see some pretentious douchebag on here ranting about him being a hack. You may not like Snyder or the films he makes, but that doesn't make him a hack. Hopefully he will prove it to the "haters" with Sucker Punch.

    Merriam-Webster Online - HACK

    by DennisMM

    3 a : a person who works solely for mercenary reasons b : a writer who works on order; also : a writer who aims solely for commercial success. Snyder may not be a hack, but he's hovering right above hackery.

    I'm always surrised

    by Gheorghe Zamfir

    I never hear or read anything about Hamm's resemblance to Deniro. Am I the only one who sees it? It's uncanny!

  • Aug. 19, 2009, 10:52 p.m. CST

    Sadly, Hamm is the only reason i MIGHT see this.

    by SenatorJeffersonSmith

    Putting a bunch of hot chicks in it is no longer a good enough reason for me to see a movie. Somewhere Springsteen's Glory Days is playing....

  • Aug. 19, 2009, 11:26 p.m. CST


    by MacReady452

    Improved on Romero. Style you can identify on sight. A director whose name alone can carry a film. Have any opinion you want..the man is more of an artist than 75% of people making movies today.

  • Aug. 19, 2009, 11:40 p.m. CST

    I'd say more of a artist 75%

    by Phategod2

    Of the Directors making money. He's got the blockbuster producing Directors beat but the one making smaller grossing pic have him beat. like Cauron and such.

    by mynemaborat

    i'm honestly really surprised... i thought everyone around here would be thinking hamm is PERFECT bruce wayne / batman... am i really the only one who thinks this is ideal casting?

  • Aug. 20, 2009, 4:18 a.m. CST

    Is this Snyder trying to prove he's not gay?

    by drturing

    I mean surely he knows 300 is the gayest movie since Top Gun?

  • Aug. 20, 2009, 12:23 p.m. CST

    improved on Romero my ass

    by wookie1972

    The one innovation - fast zombies - came directly from 28 Days Later.

  • Aug. 20, 2009, 12:25 p.m. CST


    by wookie1972

    Scorsese, the Coens, David Lynch (if he is indeed still directing), and yes, Nolan. Directors who do more than just transcribe existing material.

    Emily Browning is smoking hot.

    The premise sounds lame, but I know the end result is sure to be awesome regardless. Plus, you know.... Emily Browning is really hot.
