Jon Hamm teases his role in the 'Mean Girls' musical movie: 'I was only on set for one day'
- Jon Hamm spoke to Business Insider about starring in the new "Mean Girls" musical remake.
- The "Fargo" star said he was only on the set of the musical for one day.
The musical remake, which is adapted from Fey's 2017 "Mean Girls" Broadway musical, features a brand new cast, including Jon Hamm as the infamous Coach Carr, who teaches sex education as well as gym class.
Speaking to Business Insider on Tuesday while promoting the new season of FX's "Fargo," Hamm teased what we can expect when the movie opens in January.
"I was only on set for literally one day. I flew into New Jersey, where they were shooting in this abandoned high school and I shot for one day," says Hamm. "So it was all very jam-packed and I won't spoil much of it, but I've seen the trailer, as you might imagine, and I've seen quite a bit of it cut together."
"It's very funny, very much in the spirit of not only the original film, but also the musical, which I also saw when it was on Broadway," he adds.
Anyone familiar with the 2004 movie will remember Coach Carr (played by Dwayne Hill), and his warning that teenagers shouldn't have sex because they'll get pregnant and die.
Unfortunately, Hamm won't confirm if his version of Coach Carr gets to repeat Hill's iconic line.
"I won't tell you too much about what lines I do and don't say," says the actor. "I'll let that be a surprise for the viewers, but it's coming out soon and I hope people enjoy it."
Until "Mean Girls" hits theaters in January, fans can next see Hamm in "Fargo" season five opposite Juno Temple. Hamm plays a sinister sheriff who is hunting a housewife (Temple) with a mysterious past.
"Fargo" season five premieres on Tuesday, November 21, at 10 p.m. on FX.
