Armand Douglas "Armie" Hammer (born August 28, 1986) is an American film and television actor featured in the film The Social Network.

Clint Eastwood is currently developing a film on the controversial life of J. Edgar Hoover -which is set to star Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role - and The Social Network's Armie Hammer has just been cast as his GAY love interest!

According to reports, Hammer will play Clyde Tolson, the Associate Director of the FBI, which was founded by Hoover in 1935. Although it's never been proven, many have speculated that the two men were romantically involved.
