Mad Men isn’t known for its humor, but it has its moments of levity, and you might call some of the characters’ quirks amusing. Vulture asked past and present cast members who they think is the funniest Sterling Cooper employee at the show’s Black & Red Ball premiere at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles. Cara Buono, who played consultant Dr. Faye Miller, quickly answered, “John Slattery. He’s quick, and witty. He just makes you laugh. Every single time you look at him, you start laughing.” Bryan Batt (Salvatore Romano) called a tie: “Jon Hamm and John Slattery. The Johns.” Kiernan Shipka chose three: “Oh my gosh. Both Johns are actually so funny. And Vinnie K., Vincent Kartheiser, is hilarious. So all of them.” With no hesitation, Hamm replied, “Me!” and added, with a big smile, “I’m kidding. The answer is always Roger Sterling. That’s all I can say.”
