'The Lone Ranger's' Armie Hammer + Jon Stewart -- Dead Ringers?Nick Romano |
'The Lone Ranger' just released its first teaser trailer, showing off Johnny Depp in yet another outlandish costume -- this time for Tonto -- and Armie Hammer in his next role as Mr. Lone Ranger himself. While we were excited to se the first official footage of some of the action sequences, scenery and makeup, we couldn't help but think of Jon Stewart and how he may or may not have an illegitimate son out there.
Seems like a ballsy statement being thrown at 'The Daily Show' host, but Hammer has the same features as a young Jon Stewart. It totally makes sense -- Hammer is playing a masked good guy vigilante while Stewart is known in some circles as the good guy vigilante of politics. Guess it runs in the family!
