Johnny Depp Talks About Disney’s “Lone Ranger”

January 24, 2011 • By

Actor Johnny Depp will play the character Tonto in the Disney movie “Lone Ranger.” In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly Johnny revealed that the new movie would be really funny, saying:

What we’ve got so far screenplay-wise is really great, really funny.

Tonto is a Native American, and Johnny said the following about playing the character:

I always felt Native Americans were badly portrayed in Hollywood films over the decades. It’s a real opportunity for me to give a salute to them. Tonto was a sidekick in all the Lone Ranger series. [This film] is a very different approach to that partnership. And a funny one I think.

Now if only we knew who was going to play the Lone Ranger!
