armie-hammer-headshot-vertOct 2, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The movie, “The Social Network” has created a huge rage amongst the youth, ever since it got released. For good or bad reasons it is the latest talk of the town. Not only the film, but also the characters and the star casts have grabbed people’s mind. One of them is Armie Hammer, who, despite being one of the youngest artists in the movie, played a double role with full conviction.

Armie Hammer, played the role of Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss in the movie “The Social Network”. This twenty four year old actor, is the grandson of well known oil business man and philanthropist Armand Hammer, and the son of Michael Armand Hammer. The actor portrayed the characters of the twin brothers Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss, who had a huge contribution in making Mark Zuckerberg conceive the idea of Facebook, (although in lieu of their own dreams). In the movie, the two brothers, played by Armie Hammer, wanted to launch a web portal, “connectU”, that would enable free on-line connection amongst all the students of Harvard and their alumni. The duo, wanted Mark Zuckerberg to develop the website, that would enable intra university social networking, dating, thought exchange etc. However, Mark Zuckerberg, the protagonist, despite his initial commitment to complete the project, betrayed the two brothers, Cameron Winklevoss and Tyler Winklevoss, and plagiarized the entire idea to create his own product, Facebook.

In the movie, the two characters played by Armie Hammer, were portrayed as the main conceiver of the celebrated website, whose cake was taken away by the protagonist. Armie Hammer sketched the character of the two defeated intellectual geniuses with full conviction, to gain full sympathy. The characters, which exist in reality had actually filed a lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg, for betraying them in 2004 and lifting their ideas.
