Jon Hamm vs. Kevin Bacon: Celebrity Trayf-Off

How do these porky-named but not at all porky actors compare?

Now that Jon Hamm has hung up his Mad Men fedora for the season, we're probably going to have to content ourselves with his voiceovers for Mercedes-Benz and maybe an occasional film role (what was Don Draper doing chasing Boston bank robbers in The Town?). Another actor with a porcine name, Kevin Bacon, on the other hand, is everywhere as usual, with 437 new movies and TV appearances scheduled for this summer alone. That's one big difference between the two thespians. What are some others? We decided to hold a Celebrity Trayf-Off — Hamm vs. Bacon — and let you see for yourselves.
