January Jones and Will Forte, who costar on “The Last Man on Earth,” seem to be dating, according to new reports.

The two, who met when she hosted “Saturday Night Live” back in 2009, have had a casual thing going for a couple of months and are “having fun,” a source told Us Weekly.

People also reported the coupling of the 37-year-old “Mad Men” actress and “MacGruber,” 44, but didn’t have details to add.

Jones dated another “Saturday Night Live” alum, Jason Sudeikis, for about six months around the second half of 2010. A few months after they split she announced she was pregnant, and in the 4½ years since her son Xander was born, she hasn’t revealed the father’s name.


Los Angeles Times TV critic Robert Lloyd made Forte sound like a pretty decent dude recently in his review of “The Last Man on Earth.”

“Forte projects an innate normality, an averageness and equanimity, that keeps his characters companionable, even at their most extravagant, astringent or abnormal,” Lloyd wrote.

“Even when he’s acting like a jerk, you can see that he’s fundamentally all right.”

Who wouldn’t want to date a guy like that?
