The “Mad Men” actor stars in director Greg Mottola’s comedy based on the Gregory Mcdonald book of the same name. The movie also stars Hamm’s “Mad Men” co-star John Slattery, Ayden Mayeri, Lorenza Izzo, Roy Wood Jr., Annie Mumolo, Kyle MacLachlan and Marcia Gay Harden.
In the trailer, Fletch himself is a suspect in a murder case in Europe.
“I was an investigative reporter,” Hamm says in the teaser. “It’s an occupation that’s been cheapened by the digital age — like, president.”
He continued: “The character in the book’s a lot different than Chevy’s portrayal, and so when Bill Block at Miramax came to me and said, ‘You know, we own this and we think you’d be a good fit,’ I agreed, but I don’t want to imitate Chevy. I’m not interested in that and I don’t think anybody else would be.”
“Confess, Fletch” is out Sept. 16. theatrically and on-demand.
