Armie Hammer

With the help of a little movie magic and his innate talent, Armie Hammer pulled off one of the most talked-about film performances of 2010. The actor and great-grandson of oil tycoon Armand Hammer earned glowing reviews for his scene-stealing portrayal of real-life twins in "The Social Network" (2010), directed by David Fincher. While the film explored the complicated and controversial founding of the social website Facebook, it was Hammer's dual role that garnered some of the loudest buzz from critics and viewers alike. Before this breakthrough part, Hammer stirred up drama with a recurring guest appearance on the hit primetime series "Gossip Girl" (The CW, 2007-2012), a sure sign that his leading man stature and swagger made the actor viable for an array of television projects and blockbuster features. His well-received co-starring performance opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in Clint Eastwood's biopic "J. Edgar" (2011) only confirmed his status as a fast-rising Hollywood star, and even his title role in the notorious flop "The Lone Ranger" (2013) did little to slow his career.
