Forbes' New Profile on Armie Hammer Highlights How He's Never Been a Box Office Draw

Armie Hammer‘s career is currently in a downfall amid accusations from numerous women, but a new profile is highlighting how his career was never so strong to begin with.

Forbes has published a new article about Armie‘s “expendable” career and how he’s “a classic example of a handsome and talented white actor arbitrarily treated like a movie star despite having almost no hit movies to his name.”

Armie‘s alleged Instagram DMs with multiple women have leaked online in recent weeks and they include alarming topics like cannibalism, assault, and more. The disturbing messages that are being attributed to the actor have not been verified and he has denied allegations being made against him.

Amid the controversy, Armie has been dropped by both his talent agent and his personal publicist. He has also lost roles in the upcoming movie Shotgun Wedding and the Paramount+ series The Offer.

Armie‘s breakout role was in the 2010 movie The Social Network, which is still the highest-grossing live-action movie of his career.

The Forbes profile notes that “Hammer is good in arguably all of [his films] whether he’s a significant lead or part of an ensemble.” The article also points out that he “may not have hurt those films, but he didn’t help.”

Some of his box office misfires include 2013′s The Lone Ranger and 2015′s The Man from U.N.C.LE. And while Call Me by Your Name was a huge critical success, the movie only made $18 million at the domestic box office.

The article also points out how Kevin Spacey disappeared from Hollywood after the accusations made against him, “partially because he had long stopped being a box office draw and was only worthwhile as a prestige hire. Absent that, there was no reason to cast Spacey in your mainstream movie or awards-season vehicle. Absent that respectability, Hammer becomes just another ‘next Tom Cruise‘ who wasn’t. That doesn’t make Hammer a bad person or a bad actor. However, he was always commercially expendable.”
