8 things worth discussing about Jon Hamm besides his bulge

jon-hamm-hawaii-mad-men-don-draper-amc.jpg Jon Hamm is back in the news for going commando on the "Mad Men" set again, which begs the question: Why is anyone besides Jon Hamm concerned with whether or not Jon Hamm wears underwear? 

Because, let's face it: Jon Hamm is a remarkable actor and -- from all reports -- a genuinely super nice guy and all around cool dude. So there are plenty of Jon Hamm-related topics that would make for much more worthwhile discussion than the recurring bulge in his pants. 

Here are eight of them:

1. Jon Hamm's beard ...

This magical disappearing and reappearing crop of facial hair could instill beard envy in the likes of Chuck Norris. Just try and deny it. It's a thing of beauty, that beard. Now, could Jon Hamm's beard take Chuck Norris in a fight? That's another conversation.

2. Jon Hamm's comedy chops ...


When comedy producers need a funny man to rock out shirtless on a saxophone for "SNL," remake the "Simon & Simon" opening titles, improv alongside Larry David, or host the ESPY Awards, whom do you think they call upon? That's right, folks -- Jon Hamm. 

3. Jon Hamm's career choices ...


Because what is cooler and weirder than "A Young Doctor's Notebook?" Nothing, that's what.

4. Jon Hamm's St. Louis pride ...

In the Cardinals ...


The Blues ...


And, heck, even the pizza.

5. Jon Hamm's philanthropy ...


You know, mostly because he sang in a video for kids with cancer, and made Emmy winners donate money to orphans and things like that. No big deal, really.

6. Jon Hamm's monogamy ...

Hamm's been in a relationship with "24" actress Jennifer Westfeldt since 1997, which equals a literal eternity in Hollywood years.

7. Jon Hamm's dance moves ...

Here we see Hamm entertaining Westfeldt, "Nashville's"  Connie Britton, and a horde of photographers at the 2013 Emmy Awards. Did you see anyone else busting killer dance moves on the Emmys red carpet? Yeah, we didn't think so.

8. And speaking of Emmys ... 


Jon Hamm deserves one. It's time to wake up and smell the Don Draper, TV Academy.
