WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- Jon Hamm says he's "fine" despite an upcoming procedure to remove a polyp on his vocal cord.
"It's a simple injury," said a raspy-sounding Hamm in an interview Thursday. "Something that develops on your vocal cord from overuse, because I talk a lot."
"Other than that, believe it or not, I'm healthy as a horse. Hoarse, get it?" he joked.
Hamm's publicist Erica Gray said he will undergo a routine outpatient procedure.
The condition hasn't slowed down the 42-year-old Mad Men star who was nominated for best actor at Sunday's Emmy Awards. Hamm lost to Jeff Daniels of the HBO drama Newsroom.
"I'm OK with the results. I'm superhappy that Jeff won. I think his work is phenomenal," Hamm said. "I'm unabashed in my fandom for television so I had a great Emmys. I like going there and seeing a bunch of people and seeing my friends and it was fun. I got to present with Alec Baldwin. How fun is that?"
Ever the good sport, Hamm and actress Amy Poehler decided to throw a party for Emmy losers. To gain entry, winners were required to leave their trophies at the door and make a $1,000 donation to charity.
