Q Has the actor who plays Don Draper on the new TV series Mad Men made any movies? He reminds me of someone in the movie We Were Soldiers.
—B. Smedley, Moses Lake, Wash.

Jon Hamm, one of the stars of the new AMC-TV series Mad Men, appeared as Capt. Matt Dillon in We Were Soldiers. A Missouri native who taught acting in St. Louis before coming to Hollywood in the late 1990s, Hamm, 36, also had recurring TV roles in Providence, The Division and What About Brian. Single but attached and now living in Los Angeles, he says the acting bug first bit when he landed his earliest role: Winnie the Pooh in a first-grade play.
