Director Zach Snyder’s very cool-sounding upcoming project, SUCKER PUNCH, has just added the “so hot right now” actor Jon Hamm to its cast. Hamm’s immense popularity is due to his starring role in one of the the most well-known and acclaimed TV shows currently running, MAD MEN, which he won a Golden Globe for in 2008.

SUCKER PUNCH isn’t slated to come out to for quite a while, as there isn’t even a finished script yet, but the project already has one of the best taglines in recent memory on IMDB: “ALICE IN WONDERLAND with machine guns”. I wonder if that tagline is what sold Hamm on the project? Not sure, but it’s totally understandable if that is the reason, that’s all I would need hear, personally.

According to IMDB, the project revolves around “a little girl who is trying to hide from the pain caused by her evil stepfather and lobotomy. She ends up in a mental institution and while there she starts to imagine alternative reality. She plans to escape from that imaginary world but to do that she needs to steal five objects before she is caught by a vile man. Story is set in 1950′s.”

Hamm is doing a nice job of picking out interesting film roles (at least on paper). In addition to his role in Snyder’s trippy SUCKER PUNCH, Hamm also recently signed on to play a major part in Ben Affleck’s promising crime thriller, THE TOWN.

I’m curious how all you MAD MEN fans out there you feel about Hamm doing SUCKER PUNCH? Like it? Hate it? Please do tell.

    I think that it's important for Hamm to take on interesting and varied projects aside from MAD MEN, as it would be really easy for him to get forever boxed in as just “Don Draper.”
