Armie Hammer Talks “The Lone Ranger” on “The Tonight Show”

He’s been busy shooting his role for the blockbuster hopeful film “The Lone Ranger,” but Armie Hammer freed up time to make an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Tuesday (October 2).

The 26-year-old Hollywood hunk looked dapper in a perfectly fitted grey suit as he took a seat next to the late night guru to dish about a range of topics including his experiences portraying the character of John Reid (aka The Lone Ranger).

While dishing about the dangers of working with trained animals during production, Armie explained that the original plan of letting “a horse bite scorpions off of his face” had to be changed.

“I showed up on set and I said ‘ok great we are gonna do the things with the scorpions right’ and Gore [the director] was like ‘I think we have to rework that…,'” the “Social Network” stud recalled, laughingly adding, “We were rehearsing with the dummy and the horse bit the dummy’s nose off.”

The Gore Verbinski directed movie follows an American spirit warrior Tonto, who recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid, a man of the law, into a legend of justice. Also starring Johnny Depp and Tom Wilkinson, “The Lone Ranger” is set to hit theaters on July 3, 2013.

Johnn Depp & Armie Hammer Wrap Up “The Lone Ranger”

Decked out in tribal face paint, Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer were spotted filming scenes for “The Lone Ranger” in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday (September 27).

During the shoot, the hunky actors stood on the edge of a stylized train while showing off their shirt-less stomachs.

Following filming Depp and Hammer gave each other a hug to celebrate the last scene on set.

It hasn’t been all celebrations while filming the Disney movie. As previously reported by GossipCenter, a crew member was found dead after drowning during a swimming scene on the Los Angeles set just last week.

Ryan Gosling & Rooney Mara Get Intimate on the Lone Star State Set

Lending their talent to an intriguing new production, Ryan Gosling and Rooney Mara paired up for filming in Austin, Texas earlier this week (September 24).

The ” Half Nelson” heartthrob and his “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” actress co-star got up close and personal while in the midst of an intimate scene for director Terrence Malick’s yet-to-be-titled project.

The drama – which thus far is only confirmed for a July 4, 2013 Russian release date – tells the story of “two intersecting love triangles with obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, Texas.”

Boasting quite the extraordinary cast, the planned 2013 release also stars Natalie Portman, Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Wes Bentley.

Schwarzenegger Only Lone Vigilante Capable of Bringing Down Arms Dealer


In the interest of finding ever more action-oriented alimony funds, former state leader Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed on to star in QED’s Black Sands, a film to be directed by Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy–the guys who made Act of Valor, that movie that looks just as much like a military video game as it sounds like it would. Schwarzenegger will play “a loner” who decides to take on a Southwestern weapons manufacturer and his private army, because someone has to stop the private sale of high-powered weaponry, and if Arnold can’t do it through his government influence, then he’ll just have to do it with his fists and pistols.

The film is just one of many Arnold Versus Evil Hordes films in development, as Schwarzenegger, since leaving office, has been quick to attach his name to as many action films as possible in the hopes of somehow making it 1987 again. He’s also been linked to playing an aging horse trainer, an aging sheriff, an aging real estate mogul, an aging learning computer, and, most convincingly, one of many aging action stars. Soon, our nation’s cinemas will be a virtual Skynet of Schwarzenegger promotional materials. This is cardboard standee Judgement Day.

‘Lone Ranger’ Costs So Much Due to Native American, Presumably Hunky Werewolves, and More…


- Hayley Atwell, Alexa Davalos, and Rosamund Pike seem to be the three actresses up for the female lead in One Shot, the Christopher McQuarrie film that’s cast Tom Cruise as a character (Jack Reacher) written as a 6’5″, 250-pound dude. According to THR, all three have read for the part, so now it’s all going to come down to who does best on Cruise’s subway platform stress test.

- If you were wondering why Disney’s The Lone Ranger–a film ostensibly about a couple guys riding on horses–was going to cost upwards of $ 200 million, here’s your answer: Native American werewolf CGI. You obviously forgot to take into account that Twilight characters would inexplicably appear in The Lone Ranger.

- Turns out Kevin Smith’s film adaptation of Warren Zevon’s Hit Somebody is actually going to be two films based on Warren Zevon’s Hit Somebody.

- You’re going to get a final 16 episodes of Breaking Bad that will finish off the series, after which point Bryan Cranston will explode in a beacon of light and rain down little Cranston cameos in every film we make for the next decade.

- Jean-Claude Van Damme has agreed to play a retired military advisor in the British sci-fi film UFO, and I’m just going to say right now that isn’t going to be a very good film. Do retired military advisors even spin kick things?

- Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark star Reeve Carney will star as Jeff Buckley in a still-untitled authorized (because there’s also an authorized one that will star a Gossip Girl guy) biopic on the musician. So Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark will probably kill him soon, just to be an asshole like that.

‘Lone Ranger’ Gets a Girl, ‘Snow White’ Gets a Dwarf, and More…


- Paul Rudd is attached to star in esteemed documentarian Errol Morris’s first non-documentary since 1991, an untitled film based on an NPR story about the first man to ever be cryogenically preserved. Finally, an update to Forever Young that will replace Mel Gibson and Jamie Lee Curtis with people and interests you profess on your Facebook profile.

- Warner Bros. has bought a pitch that will see Battle: Los Angeles and Clash of the Titans 2 director Jonathan Liebesman helm a film about Caesar’s building of an army and his march on Rome–an approach Deadline is calling “Patton-like.” I wonder what Patton himself would say about that.

- Mandate Pictures reportedly wants Josh Brolin for the lead in the Oldboy remake Spike Lee is doing. Sure, go to Oldboy, Brand; I’ll be in the Oldmen‘s room.

- Simpsons character-lipped Luther actress Ruth Wilson (above) is in talks to play the female lead, Rebecca, opposite Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp in Disney’s The Lone Ranger. Now just need to lock down Eddie Murphy as the voice of Silver.

- Nick Frost is the seventh and final dwarf to join the cast of Snow White and the Huntsman, and he’ll be digitally shrunk down alongside Ian McShane, Bob Hoskins, Eddie Izzard, and others. I’m sorry, Tarsem Singh’s rival Snow White film, but this is a way, way better dwarf cast than Mickey from Seinfeld et al.
