The beginning of this year turned out to be incredibly fruitful for Armie and “Call Me by Your Name” can get the Oscar.
We are very ashamed that we took such a long break in the work of the site in such a significant period in Armie’s life. We promise to fill in all the gaps during this week. Stay with us and we’ll keep you updated!
Armie Hammer was poised to be a major matinee idol. But he wasn’t prepared for what happened to him on the set of Call Me by Your Name.
Armie Hammer is six-foot-five, a general advantage in life but one that doesn’t serve him well on the dance floor. “When I dance,” he told me recently over lunch in West Hollywood, “I think, You’re really shit at this, and everyone around you knows it because you’re the tallest guy on the dance floor and you stick out like a sore thumb.”
You can imagine Hammer’s embarrassment, then, when he had to shoot a dance scene for his new movie, the 1980s-set gay romance Call Me by Your Name. It’s a pivotal moment in the film that comes not long after his character, grad student Oliver, has arrived in a small Italian village to assist the professor father of our protagonist, 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet). The secret crush on this interloper that Elio nurses becomes full blown the night he watches Oliver boogie down to “Love My Way,” by the Psychedelic Furs: Oliver’s ecstatic, unabashed, and utterly indifferent to the world around him. “And that’s so not me, in any situation,” said Hammer. “I was like, ‘This is hell. Can we switch this for more nude scenes, please?’ ”
Sony Pictures Classics has unveiled a new clip from the critically acclaimed drama Call Me By Your Name, and it could not have come at a better time. Scripted by James Ivory based on the André Aciman novel of the same, the film hails from A Bigger Splash and I Am Love director Luca Guadagnino. Set in 1983, Timothee Chalamet (Interstellar) stars as a precocious 17-year-old American-Italian boy who’s on summer vacation with his family at their Italian villa. When a charming American scholar (Armie Hammer) comes to work with the boy’s father, a summer romance sparks that awakens feelings of first love, brilliantly and sensually captured by Guadagnino and bolstered by phenomenal performances.
This clip, released by Sony Pictures Classics in celebration of National Coming Out Day, features Hammer and Chalamet’s characters dancing to “Love My Way” at a party, and it’s pretty terrific. Much of the film revolves around the dance that Hammer and Chalamet’s characters do around each other, trying to figure out if the other one, in fact, feels the same way. It leads to some great sexual tension, flirtation, and frustration, and Hammer and Chalamet are so good in these roles.
Call Me By Your Name remains the best film I’ve seen in 2017, and I can’t wait for everyone else to experience it when it hits theaters next month. For now, enjoy this clip below. The film also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar, and Esther Garrel and opens in select theaters on November 24th.
