Armie Hammer will no longer star in the upcoming Paramount Plus series “The Offer,” which tells the behind the scenes story of the making of “The Godfather,” Variety has learned from sources. It was announced in early December that Hammer was attached to lead the show in the role of Al Ruddy, who produced “The Godfather” back in 1972.
News of Hammer’s exit from the show comes weeks after he also dropped out of the romcom “Shotgun Wedding,” in which he was to star opposite Jennifer Lopez, after a series of unverified Instagram direct messages supposedly written by Hammer leaked online. The messages described graphic sexual fantasies, including cannibalism.
