Armand Douglas "Armie" Hammer (born August 28, 1986 in Santa Monica, California) is an American actor.

He is best known for playing The Winklevoss Twins in 2010's The Social Network (the film about the creation of Facebook), John Reid in The Lone Ranger and Illya Kuryakin in the 2015 film adaptation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E..

Selected filmography:

His work provides examples of:

  • Badass Baritone: His voice is very deep and he's played a few Action Heroes in his time.
  • The Big Guy: He's 6'5.
  • Genius Bruiser: His characters may be big and muscular but that doesn't mean they're stupid.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He is very attractive and in some of his roles this quality is often exalted.
  • One Head Taller: Hammer is extremely tall and usually towers over his male co-stars, to say nothing of the female cast.
  • The Other Marty: Completed filming a role in Next Goal Wins, but after his public reputation was ruined by controversies, the role was then reshot with Will Arnett. Reportedly the part was originally a cameo but then expanded upon once Arnett took over.

  • Role-Ending Misdemeanor: A series of scandals, including numerous abuse allegations and even accusations of cannibalistic fantasies went viral in early 2021, leading him to be dropped by his talent agency and publicist and abandon numerous film roles, putting his career in jeopardy (his remaining projects were shot in 2019, with Death on the Nile waylaid by the COVID-19 Pandemic).
  • Star-Derailing Role: Just about averted. The successive flops of The Lone Ranger and The Man From U.N.C.L.E. killed off his predicted career as an action movie leading man, but he made a successful transition to character roles in smaller-scale but still successful films. Unfortunately it didn't last (see Role Ending Misdemeanor above)....
