Emmy Host Jimmy Kimmel as Don Draper… and Others

Picture Jimmy Kimmel as “Mad Men’s” Don Draper or “Breaking Bad’s” Walter White.

The funnyman posed for four different TV Guide covers, including the “Game of Thrones” character Khaleesi and “Downton Abbey’s” Dowager Countess. Check them out!

Kimmel talked to TV Guide about the photo shoot, he explained, "Now I know why they need a butler to help then with their clothes in 'Downton Abbey.' As for Khaleesi, I look more like a member of Poison than Khaleesi. I do feel like Walter White. I kinda look like him. It's amazing what a little glue and hair from some unidentified animal will do."

For the hosting the 2012 Emmy Awards, the late night host is keeping it light. "I know it's a miserable show to sit through if you're in the audience and sometimes it can be miserable to sit through if you're at home. My goal is to make the show funny from beginning to end. I'm going to do as much as I can to make that happen."

Kimmel is also pleased to now be on Oprah Winfrey’s good side. "We built 'The Man Show' as the anti-Oprah show. I never thought she would do [‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’], and I certainly didn't think she would do it with so much enthusiasm... I know most people who were fans of ‘The Man Show’ will probably be horrified to hear this, but honestly, Oprah is an inspiring person.”
