The day before, Armie‘s co-star Johnny Depp made an appearance for the show to spread the word on the film and was seen kissing host Jimmy Kimmel.

“This movie is going to make [Armie] a big star. I just thought, ‘That guy looks like the Lone Ranger.’ He’s handsome and tall with this square jaw. He looks like a guy that came from the Old West,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer shared with USA Today about Armie.

    Riding a vespa and wearing flip flops does not equal star. He’s trying so hard to be the “cool guy” in his interviews. Talking about his sex life, deranged ex-lovers. It’s probably all made up like Megan Fox. And we all know how that went for her. I get it– you’re boring, have no acting talent, so you need a memorable personality to go with the only thing you’ve got, your looks.

    John Carter II. Yet another flop for Disney. John Carter didn’t make Taylor Kitsch and this mess won’t make the trust fund baby one either. NEXT!

  • Idon’thinkso

    No way will he be a star. He’s average looking at best. He’s dresses like a pot head who sits bean bag chair and get high . He’s going on national TV at least dress in a nice pair of jeans and sneaker. Plus driving a vespa? Woo watch out for bad boy Armie Hammer.

    Hollywood always tries to make a young white guy into an action star

    The new movie and Armie have not gotten very good review – he’s simply a Vanilla version of the Lone Ranger.
    He looks like he’s gay(gotta hide in the Hollywood Closet!!!!).

  • xvc

    He’s handsome, but with those Ray-bans and hair he looks like Ed Callen

  • no

    No Jerry, you got it wrong this time.
    You got it right when you cast Orlando as Will Turner. Orlando had that unbelievable beauty and a ton of charisma as Will. So much so that people noticed him even as Johnny was chewing the scenery.
    But this guy is far too bland to catch the eye of most people in the audience. He’s handsome, but so vanilla. He is lost behind Johnny’s clowning. He just doesn’t have ‘it’.

  • GFW

    No it won’t. He’s the weakest link. The Lone Ranger wasn’t that young. This should have been Gerard Butler or any other actor. Hammer doesn’t have the gravitas or sex appeal either. He’s not much of an actor to begin with. Bad casting.
    -
    And it was too much for just one actor, Depp to pull this off. A big disappointment after sinking so much into it. Casting is everything. And these days when the matinee is $10 people think twice about seeing what they’re seeing.
