So If Depp Is Tonto, Who Might Be THE LONE RANGER??

Merrick here...
Electric Dreams has been an AICN source for some time, and has provided some substantive/impressive material in the past. He dropped us a line to follow-up on his report from yesterday's Disney pep rally at the Kodak theater in L.A. (find it HERE). Following the reveal that Johnny Depp would play Tonto (THE LONE RANGER's faithful Native American cohort), it was natural to ask who might portray the titular masked rider against injustice in the Old West. Here's what Electric Dreams had to say:
Word as of now is that George Clooney has shown a lot of interest in the role of the Lone Ranger, and the studio's been talking to him about it. Previously it was rumored that Nic Cage was up for the role, but that rumor died a long time ago. Clooney's name has come up quite a number of times since. Electric Dreams
Keep in mind this means the matter's only in the talking stages at the moment & far from a "done deal". But a Clooney/Depp LONE RANGER movie...produced with Bruckheimer flair...could be pretty cool if you ask me (and no one has).
