Jon Hamm as Lex Luthor

Jon Hamm (of Mad Men fame) delivers a fantastic performance as Lex Luthor—complete with bald-cap—in this one-off video on Funny or Die. Found via Ice Station Impossible, the blog run by Austin Grossman (of Soon I Will be Invincible fame), where he states:

I’m not ordinarily a sucker for the funny internet video, but Jon Hamm delivers possibly the most pitch-perfect supervillain performance I’ve ever run across, riding the edge of grand purpose, malign hypercognition, and irritability. Hollywood take note.

He’s probably right.
