A while back some of you might remember that I worked on Disney’s The Lone Ranger with Armie Hammer, Johnny Depp, and Tom Wilkinson. It was a pretty good time, you can read more about it here.
Well, Armie Hammer is currently doing a press tour for his new film, Call Me By Your Name, and was asked “Who is the most interesting person you’ve met, in your life?” and surprisingly enough the answer is…me!
(It starts at 4:26, in case the video doesn’t jump to the right spot.)
I’m more than a little gobsmacked by this, but it’s really kind of Armie to remember me. We hung out a fair bit during filming for The Lone Ranger and had a really good time throwing yoyos on set during the down time. And when you are making a movie, there is always a TON of down time.
And Reddit user u/suburiboy found this clip on the Disney website, which I’ve never seen! It was filmed, I was told, to be used as a bonus feature on the DVD/Blu-Ray release but I guess that never happened. Glad that Disney finally uploaded the footage, though. Maybe now my kids will think I’m cool. (Probably not).
