JOHNNY DEPP IS TONTO, BUT WHO WILL PLAY THE LONE RANGER?
Ever since we heard that Johnny Depp is playing Tonto in Jerry Bruckheimer’s 2012 version of “The Lone Ranger,” we confess we’ve been drooling at the prospect. We thought no one could ever fill the moccasins of Jay Silverheels – our childhood crush – but Johnny is as good as it gets. Depp, you’ll recall, has a Cherokee grandmother, and both he and Jay were from Canada. This certainly increases the importance of the loyal kemo-sabe, leaving one to wonder who will be cast as The Lone Ranger. George Clooney was under consideration a few years ago, but considering the necessary athleticism, seems unlikely. Any ideas?
