As we mentioned a few weeks ago, Armie Hammer has been hired to play John Reid (a.k.a. The Lone Ranger) in Jerry Bruckheimer’s Lone Ranger flick.

Since “Justice League” was jettisoned because of the WGA strike and for creative reasons, Hammer came to be known instead for his role as the Winklevoss twins in Sony’s “The Social Network.” He recently landed a gig as the prince in Relativity Media’s “The Brothers Grimm: Snow White” (Julia Roberts will play the evil queen) and recently wrapped a supporting role, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, in Clint Eastwood’s J. Edgar Hoover biopic for Warner Bros. and Imagine Entertainment

Hammer is young enough to bring in the money spending crowd, and under the mask, I’m sure he’ll convince others, that the western genre is still alive and well.
