'The Simpsons' Go 'Mad' Over Jon Hamm

The Mad Men actor is headed to Springfield for a guest appearance on the animated comedy

If you think Jon Hamm is cute, wait until you see him as a cartoon! The Mad Men star has been tapped to voice a character on a new episode of The Simpsons, executive producer Al Jean told EW.com.

The actor will be taking on the role of an FBI supervisor on the episode entitled, “Donnie Fatso." Hamm's wise-guy alter-ego will be the man Homer reports to when he becomes an undercover informant in prison and infiltrates mobster Fat Tony’s inner circle.

But don't get too excited, Mad Men fans. Hamm's character from the show, Don Draper, won't be hanging out with Bart and company.

"There’s no Mad Men reference,” says Jean. “Jon’s a gruff FBI man. Homer asks if he can pick his undercover name and finally Jon just says, ‘Your name will be Nicky Blue Pants Altosaxophony.’ Homer says, ‘Do I get to keep the name when I’m done with it?’ and Jon says, ‘No, it’s the property of the government.’  He has no patience for Homer."

As for working with Hamm, well, Jean says the actor is as dreamy as we think.

“You gave him one note and he immediately did 12 great things with it,” Jean says. “He was really funny. And handsome. He had it all.”

Hamm's Simpsons episode will air sometime in December.
