Jon Hamm on 'Mad Men': It Should End

June 13, 2011 09:06:46 GMT


Jon Hamm is relieving the fact that "Mad Men" will end after three more seasons. Although the show catapulted him to his fame, the 40-year-old believes that it will end anyway. "I think it should end," he recently said. "Everything should end. I was a big fan of 'The Office' over here [in the U.K.] because it ended."

Long negotiations of creator Matthew Weiner's contract with AMC/Lionsgate cause a delay to production of the fifth season, but the actor refused to blame anyone in this case. "It was nobody's fault really, it was the network and the studio. When billionaires fight it tends to take a lot longer than when normal people do," he explained to BBC.
