NEW YORK  -- What's the first thing Jon Hamm did when he saw his wax figure unveiled Friday at New York's Madame Tussauds?

Took a selfie, of course.

The wax figure is decked out in a debonair-looking gray suit. Mr. Hamm, who stars in the AMC drama "Mad Men," arrived at the unveiling wearing a gray suit.

"This is happenstance, but it is kind of crazy how kind of identical we decided to dress. I'm referring to him as a human being as if he dressed himself," he said.

Mr. Hamm said he posed last year for the figure, which took months to craft.

As he posed for photos next to the figure, he also joked about the stoic expression on the mannequin, saying, "a lot of people would say this kind of describes my acting [on 'Mad Men']. A lot of waxy stares, a lot of silent brooding."

Mr. Hamm was joined by his longtime girlfriend, actress Jennifer Westfeldt, who kept marveling at how much the figure looked like him.

Mr. Hamm, 43, is in the middle of a publicity blitz, including a stop in Pittsburgh Sunday, for his new movie, "Million Dollar Arm," which opens Friday.
