Jon Hamm has joined the upcoming third series of The Morning Show.
Hollywood actor, 51, who rose to fame after starring as Don Draper in Mad Men, most recently as Cyclone in the Top Gun sequel, Maverick.

Meanwhile, Crudup’s Cory Ellison has gone public with his love for Witherspoon’s Bradley Jackson, who is in a relationship with Laura Peterson, played by Julianna Margulies.
Filming for the third season will begin this month.
