Johnny Depp Talks About Playing Tonto

Johnny Depp will be playing the famed sidekick of The Lone Ranger Tonto in Gore Verbiniski’s The Lone Ranger.

Speaking to EW Depp says about playing Tonto and honoring his Native American roots:

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.

No word yet on who will be playing The Lone Ranger.
