# 5

Leo and Armie ARE HOT!!

# 6

I don’t know Armie Hammer, i only know Charlize Theron and Leo Dicaprio, one of two greatest actors of this generation, would be awesome seeing them working together !

# 7

OMG Theron + Dicaprio + Eastwood : Fireworks!!!!!! plus that handsome guy cool.

# 8

OMG Armie Hammer is soo freakin’ handsome!!!

# 9

This cast couldn’t be more perfect!! I can’t wait, this looks amazing already!!!

Leo & Charlize yay love both of them.

@ad: @Diane: @katie: SERIOUSLY WATCH The Social Network. Hammer steals all of his scenes and he does TWINS. So yeah, is a perfect cast.

If im not wrong Dicaprio and Theron worked in the movie Celebrity of Woody Allen ? but i think they haven’t shared scenes. This news is great can’t wait to see them sharing scenes together.

Anyone remember when this dude was on Gossip Girl playing con artist? I thought he was pretty bad actor but maybe it was writing. He was great in TSN and wow now working with Leo for Eastwood movie? This is huge. Congratulations.

It’s time for Leonardo to get an oscar,he truly deserves it and i think with this movie there’s a great chance to finally receive it!

Jokergurl @ 12/09/2010 at 1:38 am

Sounds good.

@Fiona: yes! I thought he was lame in Gossip Girl too, but obviously, with the right script&a great director, this guy’s talent trully showed! He was great in the Social Network! Plus he’s really hot!!!

Awesome! Bar should be in this too! She has timeless beauty!

Wow I cant wait for the movie!

This boy is excessively tall and young for the role.

He is six foot five, so he’ll make Leo look small. Leo is tall but it’s a fairly big height difference them when in reality their characters were basically the same height.

@19: And you should be in the looney bin. Timeless beauty? LMAO! Quickly aging sour lemon! Why would Clint wanna ruin this movie with her? Idi*t!

British Latin American @ 12/09/2010 at 10:31 am

Leo’s relations with women have always left me cold.

@Ms Barleo Gaga Fan:

LOL you really are gaga!

@win: Yeah, gaga or looney. Last time when there was a post about Leo`s other upcoming movie, The Great Gatsby looney-gaga wanted bar to play Daisy. LMAO!
