SXSW Interview: Armie Hammer reflects on working with Geoffrey Rush and Stanley Tucci for Final Portrait

Fresh from shooting hot dog cannons at the Academy Awards (yes, that actually happened), we caught up with actor Armie Hammer at SXSW to talk about his work in the acclaimed film Final Portrait (which we gave four stars right here).

We talk about the voyeuristic experience the movie employs, particularly in the scenes between Hammer and Australia’s Geoffrey Rush. We talk about working with the film’s director Stanley Tucci and ask the question that’s on all of your minds: has anyone ever actually painted Armie Hammer – and if not, does he want to be painted?

The film had its American premiere earlier tonight at SXSW, ahead of its US release on 23rd March 2018. In Australia, you can get the film now on Blu-Ray and DVD.
