John Hamm‘s latest movie, “Confess, Fletch” was recently release in theaters and on streaming services. John Hamm had so much faith in the movie that he offered to give up 60 percent of his salary from the film, so they would make it. Financers had no faith in it and all passed on it and even said it wouldn’t do well. That’s where John Hamm offered up the huge chunk of his salary to pay for filming.

It’s said that Miramax‘s money for the film covered a total of 27 days of filming, but that was not enough. That’s when Hamm went out looking for investors to help pay for more filming time. They hoped they’d get enough money to even get up to 30 days of filming. The amount he gave up put them at the 30 day filming mark, allowing them film in Boston for 30 days and even getting an extra day to film in Rome.
