Jon Hamm #2 on EW's Entertainers of the Year

From his 30 Rock cameos and his hardnosed law enforcement officer in The Town, to his joyously funny Emmy song and dance "Born to Run" routine and his painful portrayal of the complicated Don Draper on Mad Men, Jon Hamm has had one helluva year.

He's shown he can crack wise on TV with the award winning Tina Fey. He can be goofy with the likes of Betty White, such as when he "taught" her how to dance during the Emmy Awards' opening bit. He can sing. He can dance. He can smolder. He can cry. He can say, "What" in a thousand different ways . . . which is why Entertainment Weekly placed him at number two on their entertainers of the year list. (Taylor Swift topped the list, which thrilled my 12-year-old daughter.)

In the amusing accompanying article Hamm said of 2010: "My eternal pessimist comes out whenever things get as good as they have been. However,  I will say that 2010 was the best year I will ever have.”

Forget Taylor Swift. He DEFINITELY should have been the #1 entertainer of the year. He was so versatile in his work, and that is something to brag about. Plus he's WICKED hot in those pictures. :D

My 12-year-old daughter, the resident Taylor Swift fan, would disagree, likely citing the 1 million+ CDs Swift sold in a short period of time this fall.
