About this Article

If it weren't for the movie "Home Alone," Armie Hammer might not be starring in "The Lone Ranger." Seeing the 1990 Macaulay Culkin hit inspired Hammer to become an actor. "I had a dream that night that I was the kid in the house with the blowtorch and all that stuff and thinking, 'This is awesome! I love acting!'" said Hammer, recalling the thoughts of his 11-year-old self. "I knew this was for me. It was the only thing I wanted to do."
