Here’s a converge of coincidences: The current edition of Park Cities People includes a story I wrote about an actor named J.R. Nutt, who spent some time in the Bubble as a kid. That edition came out the same weekend that I finally got around to seeing The Social Network — the same weekend that I found out one of the actors in that film, Armie Hammer, also grew up in the Park Cities. (Thanks, Alan Peppard.)
How many of you were aware that Hammer — who impressively plays the Winklevoss twins in the Oscar-nominated film — was a Highland Park kid? And why didn’t any of you tell me before now?
