Joshua Charles "Josh" Pence (born June 8, 1982)[1] is an American actor, best known for playing the body double for Tyler Winklevoss in place of Armie Hammer in the 2010 film The Social Network.[2]

Early life[edit]

Pence was born in Santa Monica, California. His father is a real estate agent and his mother is an elementary school teacher. He attended Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire where he was a member of Psi Upsilon Fraternity. He moved to Los Angeles, California in 2007.

Career[edit]

Pence first appeared in the 2006 film The Good Shepherd in an uncredited role as Bonesman. Pence appeared in the 2010 film The Social Network as Tyler Winklevoss, alongside Armie Hammer. Pence played the part of Tyler Winklevoss during filming—he also played Cameron in certain scenes, for particular setups—and Hammer's face was grafted onto Pence's body in post-production to create the illusion of identical twins. Split-screen photography was also used.[3] Pence also appears in a separate cameo role elsewhere in the film.[4]

In 2012, Pence portrayed a naval petty officer in the film Battleship, alongside Liam Neeson, whose role as Ra's al Ghul from Christopher Nolan's film Batman Begins he plays a younger version of in the director's The Dark Knight Rises.[5]

In June 2012, Pence signed on as an ambassador to global aid agency Mercy Corps, blogging for The Huffington Post about his first trip to Haiti.[6]

Pence has also appeared in Gangster Squad as Daryl Gates, as well as in 2014's Draft Day.
