Mad Men’s Harry Hamlin Compares Ray Donovan to Sex

Specs Who Harry Hamlin Age 62 Accomplishments Emmy-nominated actor on AMC’s Mad Men (Sundays at 10/9c); appearing in the upcoming film Shiva and May Base Los Angeles What’s the first information you consume in the morning? I am really old school. The first thing I do is read the Los Angeles Times. It’s an actual newspaper that gets delivered by a guy, and I’ve got to pad down to the front of the house to get it. It’s just like you saw in the old TV shows like Ozzie and Harriett. Why do you read the paper in print? You know, there’s just something about wanting to go from section to section. There could be a surprise. By the time I get the newspaper in the morning, I already know all the regular news, so what I look for in the newspaper are human-interest stories and scientific stories that you would not see in a normal news broadcast. Do you read any science magazines or websites? I get Wired magazine. It’s kind of hit-or-miss. I don’t really read other science magazines unless there’s a specific topic. I’m fascinated by astrophysics, quantum physics and plasma physics. Are you into tech or social media at all? No. I have a Twitter account and Facebook account, but if you asked me to go on them right now, I would have to call an expert. What’s your favorite app? At the moment, it’s the Audible.com app. I just listened to a book called A Piece of the Sun by Daniel Clery. Then I went to get another book, but by accident I got a potboiler called Bloodline, which... Continue reading at 'AdWeek'
