In a second bit of casting news today, you’re looking at a teeny tiny picture of the guy who is supposed to be playing Batman in the upcoming Justice League film. His name is Armie Hammer, and no, I did not make that up. His birth name is Armand Hammer, but if you Google that name you’ll just come up with an industrialist who was born in 1898. :-) BTW, believe it or not the little image above is about the only one I could find of the guy anywhere.
Hammer, (I can’t bring myself to refer to him as “Armie”) does not exactly have a ton of acting experience behind him. He’s appeared in the movie Flicka and in episodes of Desperate Housewives, Veronica Mars and Arrested Development, three TV shows I’ve never seen.
Little experience does not mean he can’t act, it just means he hasn’t had much opportunity. On the plus side, he’s got the build for the role: He’s supposedly 6′ 5″ tall.
Not much else to say about this one…
