“Jon Hamm was up for a starring role in the smash hit movie ‘Gone Girl,’ but wasn’t allowed to do the film because ‘Mad Men’ creator Matt Weiner wouldn’t let him out of his contractual obligations to his series,” reports the New York Post’s Page Six.

The story adds, “Another source said Hamm couldn’t do the film due to ‘the “Mad Men” shooting schedule.’”

The story also says that “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.”

  1. He would have been great.

  2. Timing is everything. Jon Hamm would be great in any role…so handsome, humble and talented. I look forward to seeing more of him!
