I hardly expected that earlier in the week when the announcement of Johnny Depp in the role of Tonto in the Lone Ranger, did I expect that the title role would be announced so soon.
Usually when I try to guess or ask who will play certain film roles, it seems like it takes forever to find out.
But not so in this case.
I proposed that the title role would need to go to an actor who was as big a celeb as Johnny Depp and had to have a clearly masculine Paul Newman-esque charm.
I believe Jerry Bruckheimer found that in signing up George Clooney to play the part of The Lone Ranger. (Congrats to Um Naief for predicting Clooney earlier in the comments)
Let's just hope Clooney isn't as cheesy as he was in his other masked role as Batman.
