Last Man on Earth has gifted us with the brilliance of a well-timed completely random celebrity cameo before. Remember Will Ferrell? But the season three premiere was so totally unexpected and out of left field that we’re still laughing at the absurdity of it all.
Remember at the end of the season 2 finale, when three intruders stormed off a boat and headed toward the house? Well, turns out two of those faces are very familiar. The first one was Mark Boone’s Pat Brown, a.k.a. the paranoid dude Mike (Jason Sudeikis) first encountered when he landed back on Earth. The second one? Because he was played by none other than Jon Hamm.
But the Mad Men reunion didn’t last long, considering January Jones‘ Melissa shot him in the chest as he entered the house and he promptly died. RIP, Jon Hamm’s character, we hardly knew ye! (Really. Who was he?)
In addition to a photo of the tragic short life of Jon Hamm on LMOE, we’ve also managed to score an exclusive behind-the-scenes photo of the Hammster’s high spirits (despite the fact that his TV ex-wife is about to straight-up murder him).
Upcoming episodes of LMOE will see Tandy trying to lift BFF Todd’s spirits after some recent actions via a few white lies, and Tandy setting up a unique alarm system in the house despite the fact that Melissa has already put her own safety precautions in place, while the group decides that a change of scenery is necessary. Hm, that sounds like a relocation from Malibu is imminent. Wonder where they’ll go?
Last Man on Earth airs Sundays at 9:30 p.m. on Fox.
