Johnny Depp To Film Pirates 4 and Play Tonto in a Lone Ranger Flick?
Johnny Depp must be the busiest dude in Hollywood, Pirates 4, Dillinger, etc…. This story from the LA Times sadly has no mention of the rumor that he’s in talks with Christopher Nolan to play the Riddler, but Depp to play Tonto?!? If your going to make a Lone Ranger movie (which is seriously frakkin’ awesome BTW) then of course Viggo Mortensen is your troubled vigilante masked Ranger, but since this is set for a 2010 or 2011 release, lets think all 21st Century shall we? Why not use a Native American/First Nation actor and who better right now than Adam Beach? I mean, except for the the whole sad broken English thing, even the original Tonto was played by Canadian and native Mohawk Jay Silverheels. Anyway, check it out.
