There are few things that we around these parts love more than Jon Hamm and muppets, so the Hamm-bone making a cameo with Elmo on the 43rd season of Sesame Street is reason to fire up the ole margarita machine and set the DVR, in my opinion.
An impressive line-up of celebrities and headline makers are featured in the new season, including Academy Award-winning and nominated actors Halle Berry, Don Cheadle, Amy Ryan, Casey Affleck and Melissa McCarthy; Golden Globe-winning and nominated actors Steve Carell, Jon Hamm, Eric Stonestreet and Joseph Gordon-Levitt; Emmy Award-winning and nominated actors David Hyde Pierce and Timothy Olyphant, Up All Night’s Maya Rudolph; Parenthood’s Dax Shepard; NBA Slam Dunk Champion Blake Griffin; Los Angeles Dodger’s Matt Kemp; actors Zac Efron, Ed Helms, Kristen Bell and Paula Patton; Extra’s Mario Lopez; talk show host Wendy Williams; singer Colbie Caillat; rock band Train, rapper/musician Common, and Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
We also approve of the Timothy Olyphant appearance, obviously, but we may have to also fire up the DVR for our boy JGL — he just seems like he’d make for the perfect celerity guest on the show.
Now when will Alison Brie get her Sesame Street cameo? Make it happen, Sesame Workshop!
