Netflix's Wet Hot American Summer Adds Jon Hamm, Chris Pine, Others

Wet Hot American Summer Netflix Jon Hamm

Wet Hot American Summer just added a whole bunch of very impressive bunkmates.

Mad Men‘s Jon HammStar Trek‘s Chris Pine, Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig and Rushmore‘s Jason Schwartzman will be present when Camp Firewood re-opens for business, TVLine has confirmed.

Per our sister site Deadline, which first reported the news, Hamm will play a spy, Pine’s role simply will be “mysterious,” and Wiig will play a counselor at the prepster Camp Tigerclaw (Firewood’s rival). All of the roles are either guest star or recurring.

The newbies join most of the 2001 cult film’s original cast — including Amy Poehler, Christopher Meloni, Elizabeth Banks and Bradley Cooper — and recent additions such as Josh Charles (The Good Wife), John Slattery (Mad Men), Michaela Watkins (Trophy Wife) and Jayma Mays (Glee).

The streaming cable site’s continuation of the 2001 movie will take the form of an eight-episode limited series; Netflix confirmed the return of the movie’s cast in a teaser released Tuesday.

Since it seems like the series can get whomever it wants, hit the comments with your dream additions to the Wet Hot cast!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!
