WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - "Mad Men" star Jon Hamm says he's "fine" despite an upcoming procedure to remove a polyp on his vocal cord.
In an interview Thursday, a raspy sounding Hamm said the "simple injury" was from overuse of his voice. "Because I talk a lot," he added.
Besides the polyp, the 42-year-old actor insisted that he's "healthy as a horse."
Hamm's publicist Erica Gray said he will undergo a routine outpatient procedure.
Up next Hamm stars opposite Daniel Radcliffe in the miniseries, "A Young Doctor's Notebook," premiering Oct. 2 on Ovation.
It is based on a collection of short stories by Russian playwright Mikhail Bulgakov.
Hamm described the series, which originally aired in the U.K., as "darkly comic," "gory" and "fun."
