In ‘Keeping Up With the Joneses,’ Hamm is known as the hero of the neighborhood. However, he recently shared an offscreen act of heroism during the film’s red-carpet premiere where he saved a life. The cast, including Gal Gadot, Isla Fisher, and Zach Galifianakis, came together to celebrate Oktoberfest in Los Angeles to honor the film. In the movie, Gadot and Hamm play undercover spies who live next door to a dull couple portrayed by Galifianakis and Fisher.
According to Gadot, the competition was always about who could make the other person laugh first, deliver the best punchline, or be the first to break a take due to laughter.
Hamm’s role in the movie involves being a spy who aims to save the day, but in reality, he shared with THR that he had once saved his neighbor’s life. According to him, on a weekend in L.A., he heard a commotion from the next-door neighbor and looked over the wall to find out what was happening. It turned out that the elderly man, who was already 90 years old, had fallen off a ladder and hit his head on the driveway, causing him to bleed all the way down. Hamm immediately rushed to the scene and provided assistance to the senior citizen.
At that moment, Hamm went into full hero mode. He leaped over the obstacle and quickly thought back to his days as a Cub Scout. He managed to free the child from the ladder and remove all the tree branches that were entangling him. He also took off the child’s collar and applied some pressure on his head. The child didn’t understand English, so it was difficult for Hamm to make him calm down and breathe properly. Fortunately, an ambulance arrived and took the child away. Hamm breathed a sigh of relief knowing that the child was okay. He was grateful for his good relationship with his neighbors who appreciated him a lot.
After rescuing a life, Hamm gained the approval of his neighbors while his co-star, Isla Fisher, shared her admiration for her neighbor Eric Idle. Fisher, a huge fan of Monty Python, recalls a moment when Idle sang “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,” and it became an epic moment in neighbor history. According to Hamm, the film is suitable for all ages as there is something for everyone. It’s a family-friendly movie that allows you to bring your kids, cousins, nieces, and nephews without having to worry about any inappropriate content.
The 2016 presidential election has been a source of stress and tension for many, making comic relief a welcome distraction. During the premiere of a new film, actor Jon Hamm shared his disbelief at Trump’s recent offensive comments about women, stating he couldn’t even understand them. Gal Gadot, who plays Wonder Woman in the film, jokingly feigned ignorance when asked about Trump. Other notable attendees included the film’s director, Greg Mottola, Sacha Baron Cohen (who is married to one of the stars), Martin Short, Larry David, Jack McBrayer, Maribeth Monroe, and Matt Walsh.
