When the long-awaited DC Comics film Justice League finally comes to fruition, audiences will undoubtedly revel in the glorious heroism of the crime-fighting, humanity-saving forces onscreen: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the like. A troupe of characters so wholly admirable that they in turn deserve performers equally as gallant to take on the task of portraying them. Talks have attached Armie Hammer to take over as the Dark Knight for this ensemble picture, and we can see why — dude is a bona fide hero. E! reports that Hammer was among several individuals who provided assistance to strangers following a car accident on Friday night.
Model Leann Tweeden, who was also among the good Samaritans who came to the aid of troubled parties after a crash on her busy street corner, revealed to E! that Hammer was a member of the ad-hoc rescue party."It's me and this guy helping the woman (2 other girls are there. One was a witness on her Vespa. The other in her car in the parking lot of the flower shop.) ... When the guy turns around, who is it?!!!! None other than: ARMIE HAMMER!!!!! (Yes, from The Social Network, J. Edgar and the upcoming The Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp!) ... The cutie Armie was in the opposite turn lane in his Audi and watched the whole thing go down and got out of his car to help."Bam. Hero. Batman status. As you can imagine, we're pretty sold on the Winklevoss taking on the role of Bruce Wayne in the developing DC assembly. And luckily, there are enough other day-savers in the acting game to comprise the rest of the cast. Check it out, Warner Bros, we've done all your casting for you.
Kate Winslet as Wonder Woman
Remember when Rose DeWitt Bukater saved two children and Richard Branson's mother from a burning building on the millionaire's private island? That's worthy of landing her the role of Diana Prince.
Patrick Dempsey as Green Lantern
Back in April, Dempsey helped saved a 17-year-old Malibu resident from his flipped car, using a crowbar and a fire extinguisher as his tools. Imagine if he had the Power Ring: that kid would have been out in seconds flat.
Anderson Cooper as The Flash
I know he's not an actor, but he is the best human to ever live. Remember when Anderson Cooper halted a news report of the atrocities in Haiti to tend to a wounded young boy? We dub thee Barry Allen.
T.I. as Aquaman
In a different turn of events, rapper T.I. once talked a man out of killing himself. Speaking to the man through a video stream, T.I. convinced the man (who was planning on jumping off a building in Atlanta) to come down to safety, promising to speak with him and encouraging to seek psychiatric help.
Werner Herzog as The Martian Manhunter
Dude got shot mid-interview with the press (we say "mid" because he actually insisted on continuing the interview), and once saved Joaquin Phoenix from a burning car. Werner freakin' Herzog.
Ryan Gosling as Superman
Because who else could pull off the most wonderful figure in superhero lore but the fight-stopping, car accident-preventing Ryan Gosling? Nobody. No offense, Henry Cavill.

The two stars boarded their plane at London's Heathrow Airport two hours late and then had to wait a further eight hours until the flight took off.
But, rather than complain about the delay, the two co-stars decided to make the best out of a bad situation.
McAvoy tells WENN, "Everybody was in really good spirit. Thousands and thousands of people were trying to get their bags out of a mountain of bags but it was hilarious.
"Kerry got a big box of muffins and I got a lot of water and calcium tablets and we went around finding children who were crying and really annoying their parents, so we were like, 'Do you want a muffin?'"
Suddenly Calvin Klein model; suddenly TV star; suddenly engaged, again. Brooke Shields of erstwhile "Suddenly Susan" fame became engaged to boyfriend Chris Henchy over the weekend while vacationing in Mexico, the actress’s publicist has confirmed.
No details of the romantic coup were otherwise available, save from the facts that Henchy proposed on a Saturday night.
Henchy, 37, was a producer on the short-lived NBC series "Battery Park." Shields, 35, whose impressive resume includes being the national jail-bait in those Calvin Klein ads and "The Blue Lagoon" as a teenager and the star of NBC’s "Suddenly Susan" as a grown-up, was once married to tennis bad boy Andre Agassi. That marriage ended in April 1999.
Henchy and Shields have been seeing each other since the fall.
THE VIP TREATMENT: A group of New Jersey teenagers apparently came to Pamela Anderson’s rescue after the ex-"Bay Watch" actress left her debit card at an ATM machine in a Malibu, Calif. mall Sunday morning, without so much as closing out the transaction.
Shocked to discover who the card belonged to, the good Samaritans swiftly returned the plastic to its rightful owner and was rewarded handsomely – in this case, a photo op with the "VIP" bombshell herself.
Rosie O'Donnell BYE, BYE ROSIE?: The New York Daily News reports today that CBS is allegedly looking for a new host to replace Rosie O’Donnell on the Tony Awards show. According to the tab, the network is reportedly peeved over O’Donnell’s biased preference in using her friends -- such as musical director John McDaniel, Susan Lucci and Kathie Lee Gifford -- for the show
Our inquiries to the network were not returned. O'Donnell served as Tony Awards’ emcee for three years, in 1997, 1998 and 2000.
WHEN ROMAN FALLS: Exiled auteur Roman Polanski is being sued by Artisan Entertainment for making run with more than $1 million plus from his last film, "The Ninth Gate."
The complaint, filed July 11 in a Los Angeles District Court, claims that Polanski and his production company have kept the French value-added tax refunds instead of turning the dough over to Artisan.
