Matthew McGrory, 7'6". The late Big Fish actor wasn't comfortable with his stature, something he shared with Andre the Giant (who he played in Andre: Heart of the Giant). "He felt the same way, that he would do anything just to be a person of regular size one day a week, where people don't have to stare at him, where he could go see a regular movie and walk down the street," Andre director Drew Sky sa...

Armie Hammer
How was the West won?

Could it be by Armie Hammer’s good looks?

Armie Hammer, known best for his role as the Winklevoss twins, in “The Social Network,” is revising the role of Lone Ranger in the July 3rd release of “The Lone Ranger.” Popular in the 50s, the show followed Lone Ranger and his Indian companion, Tonto, as they fought injustice. Even though all eyes are on Johnny Depp’s unique Tonto look in the movie, Hammer is bringing his acting chops to the screen.

So, who is Armie Hammer? Well, besides telling you his real name is Armand Douglas “Armie” Hammer, here are five fun facts abo...

8 Things To Know About 'The Lone Ranger'

July 2nd, 2013 12:00pm EDT
The Lone Ranger & Tonto
On July 3, Disney is going to march out a film that they certainly hope is a hit. With an astounding budget and plenty of big name stars it can be easy to get lost in a pool of popcorn butter. The Lone Ranger has been around for a hell of a lot longer than you think, coming from a time when people listened to the radio (and I mean in places other than their cars). As anything that is exceptionally old there is a whole lot going on under that wrinkly surface (the appeal of this piece with the seniors is going to be through the roof) with plenty of stories and information that theaters full o...

'The Lone Ranger' Review: Johnny Depp Is More Jack Sparrow Than Native American Warrior Tonto

July 2nd, 2013 7:36am EDT
'The Lone Ranger'
Okay, maybe I missed something here. I have never seen the television show "The Lone Ranger" but I do know that it's about this dude who wore a mask, had a BFF named Tonto and rode around on his horse Silver, saving folks from bad guys in the old West.  

To the best of my knowledge, the show was not a comedy. It was a serious western.

So you can imagine my surprise when I sat down to watch "The Lone Ranger" and found it filled with one joke after another - and not very funny ones. 

That's right guys and girls, this is an action comedy, at least according to the press notes... And there i...

Two Jews' Review 'Mirror Mirror' And Only One Feels The Happily Ever After (Video)

March 30th, 2012 11:00am EDT
Mirror Mirror
Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin Schwartz: Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest Of Us All? The answer to that question is definitely Miss Julia Roberts, who plays Snow White's (Lily Collins) evil stepmother/queen, in director Tarsem Singh's new film, 'Mirror Mirror'.

Ms. Roberts absolutely nails the part.

In fact, she is the only reason to see this remake of the classic fairytale. I think this is one of her best performances in a long time.

For those of you not familiar with the story (yes, it is possible) Snow White's daddy, the King (Sean Bean) disappeared one dark and storm...

Armie Hammer On Licking Julia Roberts' Face, Behaving In Hollywood And Riding His Vespa

March 29th, 2012 1:00pm EDT
Armie Hammer
Armie Hammer was the breakout star of The Social Network, although he might have had an unfair advantage since he played two characters. His memorable work as the Winklevoss twins bumped him into the covetable tier of young actors who can go for the juicy parts. He got to play J. Edgar’s closeted lover Clyde Tolson and now he’s playing the title role in The Lone Ranger. (Johnny Depp is his “sidekick” Tonto.)

This week he stars as Prince Charming in Mirror Mirror, a new take on the Snow White story. This prince is kind of a goofball, and when he falls under the evil queen (Julia Roberts)’ s...

Actress Lily Collins was left battered and bruised on the set of new movie Mirror Mirror after taking several blows from a sword while shooting fight scenes with Armie Hammer.

Collins, daughter of veteran rocker Phil Collins, plays Snow White in the adventure film and the script required her to clash onscreen with co-stars Hammer and Julia Roberts.

She was so determined to make their sword fighting scenes look realistic, she took fencing lessons for four months - but she was still unable to effectively parry Hammer's blows when the cameras rolled.

Acclaimed actor Leonardo DiCaprio stars in "J. Edgar," director Clint Eastwood's richly detailed biopic exploring the life and career of controversial FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.

For nearly 50 years, Hoover (DiCaprio) fought crime as one of the most powerful law enforcers in America. During Hoover's extended stint as Director of the FBI, however, his penchant for bending the law in the name of seeking justice and using the secrets of high-profile leaders to gain personal leverage won him just as many supporters as detractors.

Little did many other than his loyal colleague Clyde ...

Armie Hammer recently spent a night in a Texas jail after he was found in possession of marijuana.

The actor was driving through a border patrol checkpoint in Texas on November 30 when a sniffer dog alerted cops to a small drug stash in his car. A search of the vehicle also turned up one brownie and three cookies laced with medical marijuana.

Hammer was arrested and held in custody overnight. He was released after paying a $1,000 bond.

The star escaped prosecution by the El Paso District Attorney because the 0.02 ounces of pot discovered did not qualify for a felony. The case has since b...

Live From The Academy Award Nominations
Like last year, the Oscar Nominations announcement morning always proves to be an early morning. I was up at 2:15 AM to conquer the pinnacle of the awards show season, the Academy Awards. I was interested to see how the Academy would vote this year with a new voting system for Best Picture, no clear frontrunner in the race, and a plethora of names being bandied about in the acting categories. The Academy did not disappoint this year with fresh faces, a nod to comedy, and a surprising nine Best Picture nominees instead of the predicted six or eight nominees.

Armie Hammer has confessed he felt out of his depth shooting scenes with Hollywood heavyweights Leonardo DiCaprio and Judi Dench for Clint Eastwood's new movie "J. Edgar."

He tells GQ magazine, "My first day, I walked in and there was Clint, Leonardo DiCaprio and Judi Dench. I was like, 'I am so out of my leag...

Review: 'J.Edgar' Lacking Identity

November 12th, 2011 11:26am EST
J. Edgar sizes up some men. Not in that way yet.
The gay love story occupies a curious place in the minds of populist cinema goers of late: Novelty. Throughout Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar, the audience would snicker and laugh to one-another, just above their breath, at any sort of implication of romance between J. Edgar Hoover (Leonardo Dicaprio) and his life-long, possibly fabulous companion, Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer). Just a scant few years ago audiences were actively protesting “Brokeback Mountain” and now they’re giddy like school girls during a 5th grade game of Spin-the-bottle. I suppose that’s progress.

What isn’t progressive, o...

Two Jews' Review 'J. Edgar' And Duke It Out Over Eastwood's Biopic (Video)

Two Jews on Film - By Joan Alperin-Schwartz: Every once in awhile, you experience a performance by an actor that simply blows your mind. That's exactly what happened to me, when I watched Leonardo DiCaprio portray J. Edgar Hoover in Clint Eastwood's new film, 'J. Edgar.'

What makes a great performance are the subtle things an actor does. Things that inform the character… a gesture, a look, body language, the tilt of the head. DiCaprio obviously understands this because he absolutely nails the part.

Equally brilliant, is Armie Hammer (The Social Network) as Clyde Tolson, Hoover's long ti...

Evan Rachel Wood's Defining Moment In Hollywood Was Making 'Thirteen'

Evan Rachel Wood
AFI Fest celebrated Young Hollywood with a panel of under 30 movie stars: Evan Rachel Wood, Kristen Dunst, Armie Hammer and Anton Yelchin. Asked when they felt they’d made it in Hollywood, Wood surprised her fellow panelists and the audience with her answer.

“Has everybody seen Clueless?” Wood began. “Jeremy Sisto played Elton, drove Alicia Silverstone home in that movie. He drove me home in Thirteen.”

Thirteen was Wood’s breakthrough movie where she played a teenager falling for a bad influence. Her Hollywood moment was much more innocent though. “As a 14-year-old, that was a big moment ...

Olympic rowing stars Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss have dropped their court appeal of a settlement with Facebook.com founder Mark Zuckerberg.

The partnership which led to the legal wrangle was documented in acclaimed 2010 film The Social Network.

The Winklevoss twins, who were portrayed by Armie Hammer in the film, claimed they were shortchanged in a $65 million settlement with Zuckerberg in 2008 because Facebook.com had misrepresented the value of company stock.

In April, a federal appeals judge rejected the argument.
