Just as we were ready to pull out what has unfortunately become our go-to Sunday morning headline where SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE is concerned — you know, the one that goes a little something like…. “We Watched SNL So You Didn’t Have To!” — along comes Jon Hamm. Who — from his fantastic opening monologue that had him mercilessly poking fun at his Don Draper alter-ego (see above) to his sketch as newly elected Massachusetts Senator, the surprisingly seductive Scott Brown, threw caution, not to mention clothes (Sergio!) to the wind doing whatever it took for a laugh — not only officially cemented his status as the real deal acting wise, but one that we have a feeling will be haunting the hallowed hallways of Studio 8H for some time to come. Seriously. Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, watch your back. Lorne Michaels has a new favorite. See for yourself after the jump.
