American actor Jon Hamm is best known for his role as Don Draper in the television series Mad Men that ran for seven seasons from 2007 to 2015. He won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a television series twice, once in 2008 and the other time in 2016.

Hamm then proceeded to star in a plethora of great projects such as Baby Driver, Black Mirror, Good Omens, and Top Gun: Maverick. However, none of these movies could give Hamm the chance to channel his talents in drama and comedy alike as most of these only needed one side of him. Luckily, for him as well as his fans, he has got another chance to do something similar to what he did in Mad Men.

Fargo is popular for its ensemble cast and well-written crime plots that keep the audience engaged throughout the series. Another good thing about it is that since it is an anthology series, each new season has an original cast and new story which saves watchers the trouble of going through all the previous seasons or remembering whatever happened in them.

The latest season of Fargo follows Juno Temple’s character Dorothy ‘Dot’ Lyon, a Midwestern housewife who is on the run from the law enforcement authorities. This is where Jon Hamm’s character comes into the picture as the sheriff who has been looking for Lyon for a long time.

As is tradition for the show, this season also has a star-studded cast with Juno Temple, Jon Hamm, Joe Keery, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Lamorne Morris, and Sam Spruell among others. The show was originally set to be released in September 2023 but has now been delayed to November owing to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.
