Right , here it is.
First ‘Dish of the Week’ for 2018.
As I have just watched him in a beautiful film that I would highly recommend watching, Call Me By Your Name, and, as this is not the first film I’ve seen and liked him in, I thought it was about time that Armie Hammer got a ‘Dish of the Week’ mention.
Look at those eyes!
Armie was born in 1986 (how depressing) and is a staggering 6 foot 5 inches tall.
He is a stunningly beautiful work of natural art.
He first hit my radar when he appeared in Mirror Mirror as Prince Alcott and when he took the lead role in The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp.
Neither film left me ‘wanting’ to see them again unfortunately, but then he starred alongside ‘Henry Cavill’ (Dish of the week #20 #25 AND #39…. tough competition!!) in The Man From U.N.C.L.E!!
It doesn’t show in the poster but Armie is a whopping 4 inches taller than Henry!!
It certainly shows in the film.
I liked the original TV show and I loved this film, I hope to see a sequel but unfortunately I’m not holding out much hope at this point.
I’ve seen him in Nocturnal Animals that he appears in alongside Jake Gyllenhaal who is Dish of the Week #62.
I don’t think I was in the right frame of mind however, and can barely remember anything about it. I will have to try it again.
Before ‘Call Me By Your Name’ I saw him in ‘Mine’
He plays a soldier who is on an assassination attempt that goes wrong.
He ends up triggering a land mine. He’s on his own, in the middle of the desert, exposed to the elements and he must survive the psychological and physical strain if he is to see his rescue!
It is literally Armie, standing on a landmine, in the middle of the desert and tackling every demon imaginable.
It is a brilliant film!!
But ‘Call Me By Your Name’ is an absolute masterpiece.
I hate to jinx it by saying ‘Oscar’ worthy as we are just a couple of weeks away from nominations, but I really think this stands a chance of a few nominations.
So there it is.
The first Dish of 2018.
What a tasty dish he is.
