People Editorial Guidelines Published on October 7, 2016 03:11 PM Share Tweet Pin Email Abigail Spencer is currently starring as a time-traveling college professor in NBC’s new drama series Timeless. But while the show finds the 35-year-old actress starring alongside ER‘s Goran Visnjic and 90210‘s Matt Lanter, there’s one actor Spencer hopes to work with soon: Jon Hamm! Spencer hopes she and Hamm, who previously starred together on Mad Man, can ditch the period clothes for something a little more modern. “I would love to work in a different era, because we were doing a period drama in the early 1960s. I’d love to do a comedy with him. I just think it’d be fun for us to do something totally different than that,” she tells PEOPLE Now The actress went on to gush about Hamm’s comedy skills. “He’s so funny,” she said. “He’s one of my favorite SNL hosts ever. He is a true SNL nerd. He knew every one of the skits.” According to Spencer, Hamm was known for reenacting an SNL skit around the set. “He would just pull them out,” Spencer said. “Like, you know Maya Rudolph’s ‘Tiny Moves?’ He would just pull them out.” RELATED VIDEO: Warning!
