This must have been the talk of The Town.

On Late Night With Seth Meyers Thursday, Jon Hamm and Meyers reminisced about the two times the Mad Men star hosted Saturday Night Live back when Meyers was head writer, during which they pulled off two memorable sketches involving the actor in a bathroom, either eating ham or using a Ham radio.

Oh, the puns. And then Meyers revealed a very fun fact about his guest.

"You almost set an SNL record, according to our wig department," he told Hamm.

"Yes," the actor acknowledged, "I'm sort of known for having a giant head."

Oh, the puns. (But hats off to these two, they kept it classy throughout.)

"Maybe you can't tell on camera...look at how little his head is," Hamm added as Meyers leaned in to better illustrate the point. "It's kind of adorable, he's got this cute little head. 'Little Peanut,' that was Seth's name walkin' around the ole hallways."

The Golden Globe winner recalled immediately having his head measured when he first went into hair and makeup on SNL.

"And I asked the nice ladies, I said, 'Honestly, I've got the biggest head ever, right?' And they said...'No. There was one guy who had a bigger—in the history of the show—had a bigger head than me," Hamm smiled.

"Ben Affleck has a bigger head than I do," he revealed.

Of course Hamm wanted to make sure that was really the case.

"So I saw Ben and I gave him one of my [fitted baseball caps]...and it literally sat on top of his head like a little toy hat," Hamm said. "I was like, 'That is a giant dome.'"

"So when you guys did The Town..." Meyers began.

"It was the two biggest heads that had ever been on SNL," Hamm confirmed.

Hats off to both gentlemen!
