Armie Hammer, who won rave reviews playing the Winklevoss twins (yes, both of them) in “The Social Network” has landed yet another high-profile gig. He’ll play the Lone Ranger in Disney’s upcoming remake.

He’ll be joining Disney favorite Johnny Depp who has already been cast in the role of Tonto, the Lone Ranger’s trusty Native American sidekick. Gore Verbinski (director of three of the “Pirates” movies) is already attached to direct.

Hammer is also slated to star with as Prince Andrew Alcott in “Snow White.” Julia Roberts will play the evil queen.
