Jon Hamm to guest star in 'The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret'
Jon Hamm, of AMC's "Mad Men," will guest star in five episodes of IFC's original comedy series, "The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret," the network announced on Monday.
The second season of "The Increasingly Poor Decisions" premieres in January 2012 and Hamm will appear alongside the series stars David Cross and Will Arnett, who both starred in "Arrested Development."
Cross created, wrote and stars in the comedy series as Todd Margaret, a well-intentioned corporate nobody, who bluffs his way into a senior sales position at the London office for the new energy drink Thunder Muscle. Arnett stars as Margaret's boss.
The second season opens with Margaret's criminal trial, following his arrest in season one for breaking into Parliament in an attempt to woo his crush.
Hamm plays suave ad firm partner Don Draper in AMC's "Mad Men" and recently signed a three-year deal to continue his role. According to Deadline, the actor will earn eight figures for the deal and it stands to make him one of the highest paid actors in cable television.
The fourth season finale of the 1960s-era drama series aired in October 2010. Production on the show's fifth season is slated to begin in August and Hamm is set to direct the fifth season premiere, which will air in March 2012.
