Jon Hamm wanted the lead role in “Gone Girl,” but “Mad Men” creator Matt Weiner allegedly wouldn’t let him, citing his contractual obligations to the AMC show.
“Matt would not let Jon out of his contract to do ‘Gone Girl.’ Jon was really upset about it at the time — and is still upset, because he’s thinking about the future of his career as ‘Mad Men’ comes to a close,” a source told Page Six.
Hamm, who recently completed a 30-day stint in a rehab facility for alcohol, told GQ in an interview that he’s unsure about what he’ll do after he’s done being Don Draper. (RELATED: Jon Hamm Speaks Out About His Time In Rehab)
“The one constant thing I’ve had in my career is now removed. And that’s an eye-opener.”
“Are people still going to take me seriously? Am I just going to do romantic comedies for the rest of my life? What’s next?”
“I wish I was smug enough to have had a grand plan.”
