‘Mad Men’ star having ‘simple’ vocal procedure

Jon Hamm says he’s fine despite an upcoming procedure to remove a polyp on his vocal cord.

“It’s a simple injury,” a raspy Hamm said in an interview Thursday. “Something that develops on your vocal cord from overuse because I talk a lot.”

“Other than that, believe it or not, I’m healthy as a horse. Hoarse, get it?” he joked.

Hamm’s publicist, Erica Gray, said he will undergo a routine outpatient procedure.

The condition hasn’t slowed down the 42-year-old “Mad Men” star who was nominated for a best actor Emmy Award. Hamm lost to Jeff Daniels of the HBO drama “Newsroom.”

“I’m OK with the results. I’m super happy that Jeff won. I think his work is phenomenal,” Hamm said. “I’m unabashed in my fandom for television so I had a great Emmys. I like going there and seeing a bunch of people and seeing my friends and it was fun. I got to present with Alec Baldwin. How fun is that?”
