Is it crass to say that we’d be his trusty steed if Armie Hammer plays the Lone Ranger? Oh, it would be? Excellent. It turns out those Ryan Gosling Lone Ranger rumors proved false when the Blue Valentine star passed on the role, though we wouldn’t have kicked either Gosling or the Social Network star out of our…tent? lean-to? campground? In addition to playing Prince Andrew Alcott in upcoming The Brothers Grimm: Snow White alongside Lily Collins, Hammer is allegedly in talks to ride or die beside Johnny Depp‘s Tonto in the gunslinger flick. Let’s be honest here, people: there’s not a whole long that’s attracting us to this cowboy crimefighting movie other than the unbearable hotness of the proposed leads. Well, that’s not exactly true. You know whatever Depp does with the sidekick role, he’s going to spend 85% of the film smirking and/or acting drunk. Add that to the image of Armie in a face mask, and it’s probably enough to make us go see this film in theaters.
