Don Draper may gamble with people's emotions, but sweet and handsome Jon Hamm keeps things a little cleaner in his games -- like Hamm's triumph Thursday night at the Hollywood Domino Tournament, the annual fundraiser from Daya Fernandez that benefits Artists for Peace and Justice.

The charity, founded by director Paul Haggis, once again took over the terrace at West Hollywood's Sunset Tower Hotel for cocktails, celebs decked out Old Hollywood style -- including Ben Stiller, Ed Norton, Topher Grace and Ali Larter.

Hamm won the domino tournament and celebrated with a few Heinekens and a chat with Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, while "Twilight" actress Julia Jones hung in a corner sipping VnC cocktails.

Brittany Snow showed off a new dark red hairdo, while AnnaLynne McCord kept her locks concealed under a cap.

Hamm is back to work on "Mad Men," but this weekend he'll throw his weight behind his costars and the writers from "Bridesmaids" when it comes to the Oscars.

"I'm rooting for Melissa [McCarthy], and of course Kristen and Annie," he said, referring to screenwriters Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo.
