Johnny Depp Is Tonto In Verbinski’s Lone Ranger

  • Pin it

When it comes to costumes and big screen performers, Johnny Depp is definitely on top of my list. Forget Batman, Spider Man or any other wonder – man! Johnny Depp is who you have to watch! Fashion wise, he’s the fiercest of them all!

No skin – tight spandex, no Ron McDonald color feast, no flying around, no magic, no twisted inventions. Maybe just a dash of rum and a loooot of feathers! Johnny Depp has invented Disney’s Captain Sparrow as we all know him today.

(rumor has it that after the first screening of the first Pirates of the Caribbean, some Disney hotshots said Depp has ruined the Sparrow character! Ha!). And he’s about to reinvent Lone Ranger’s Tonto as the first image (as tweeted by Jerry Bruckheimer) of the Lone Ranger and his faithful companion, Tonto, is everything we’d expect from Depp! Isn’t he fierce? That crow on his head is hilarious! Truly a Mad Hatter, that one! (fiy, The Lone Ranger is set for 2013 release, under the brilliant direction of Gore Verbinski – also responsible for Rango, and three of the POTC movies)

I’m a bit tired of Johnny’s weird looks on screen. Like to see him act for a change without the hoopla…….

I just hope that his portrayal of Tonto is not racially insensitive to Native Americans. There are many really bad and just shameful renditions of Native Americans in books, films, and tv.
I understand that Johnny has some Native American blood but to be honest it would have been great if they actually casted an actor who is purely Native American.
Oh and Kpriss I think that the Crow or possibly Raven that is on Johnny’s head is there for comic effect. The crow and raven are sacred birds in many Native American tribes.
