Growing up in Texas, Armie Hammer literally learned the ropes of the Wild West. In Disney’s new remake of the classic tale, The Lone Ranger, Hollywood’s new heartthrob puts those skills to the test. See what the 26-year-old actor told us about becoming the famous cowboy.
Armie Hammer: Not really. I knew I was relatively protected by everyone involved. I knew Jerry [Bruckheimer] doesn’t know how to produce a movie that’s not good, and Johnny [Depp] is going to nail it. So I was like, “OK, I’ll just try not to flub my lines.”
AH: Totally. Growing up in Texas, it was a big part of it. I was in Indian Guides as a kid, which is sort of like Boy Scouts.
AH: I learned to fire two pistols simultaneously, while riding a horse through a train.
AH: It was more fun than anything else. I think everybody got a little banged up every day. But that was all part of the fun. Nothing life-threatening.
AH: It was great. He’s a pro, one of the best in the world.
AH: We had a lot of time together and it was great. There might have been a couple of hijinks here and there. Nothing I can really share. Code of silence, you know?
AH: She liked it. I think she was not thrilled by the way it smelled by the end of the movie, but she was still thrilled.
AH: It depends how well this one does. I would if Gore [Verbinski] did it, and Jerry did it, and Johnny did it. I would definitely consider doing it. It’s complicated.
We hope all those conditionals pan out. We’d love to see this striking young man put on the mask again!
