They didn’t must needle him to pierce his fake nipples.
Ahead of Tuesday’s premiere of the fifth season of FX’s “Fargo,” Jon Hamm shared some behind-the-scenes secrets about his character, North Dakota sheriff Roy Tillman.
“I needed to have some very blue latex placed on my nipples, after which they forged a resoundingly lifelike pair of nipples, which they then pierced and placed over my very own nipples, and we shot said nipples,” Hamm, 52, explained as a part of a premiere screening and panel discussion on Nov. 15, Variety reports.
“The crew doesn’t get enough credit, but there was a dedicated nippleologist,” he added.
Hamm said he was advantageous to wear the bogus accessory if that meant making showrunner Noah Hawley, 56, comfortable.
“Noah had a fairly great sense of who this character was, and I used to be on board with happening that journey with him. It was fun,” he said on the panel, in keeping with The Hollywood Reporter.
Season 5 of “Fargo,” which can stream on Hulu, also stars Juno Temple, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Joe Keery and Lamorne Morris.
The Post has contacted Hamm reps for comment.
He has been booked to play Coach Carr within the film adaptation of Tina Fey’s “Mean Girls: The Musical,” which hits theaters on Jan. 12.
