Jon Hamm credits ‘dedicated nippleologist’ for fake ‘Fargo’ piercings


They didn’t have to 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 had to have some very blue latex put on my nipples, and then they cast a resoundingly lifelike pair of nipples, which they then pierced and placed over my own nipples, and we shot said nipples,” Hamm, 52, explained as 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 fine to wear the artificial accessory if that meant making showrunner Noah Hawley, 56, happy.
