    I LOVE Johnny Depp, but the Tonto thing is just not happening. The voice/accent or whatever the hell that is, it is horrible. Bummer.

    I have always loved the Lone Ranger. Did not see Scout at all in the promo.

    I feel this way about Leonardo DeCapitate...he's in some new western (Django??) and I might pay to see it if he gets shot or something. LOL IMO Leo's best work was the special needs boy in What's Eating Gilbert Grape. After seeing him as that character, nothing else he does sticks for me. Oh well, to each his own.

    It'll be interesting to see how the "new" Tonto compares (or contrasts) to Jay Silverheels' interpretation. I liked the old Tonto, savvy, down-to-earth, and very serious. While he did have a wry smile, I don't remember him displaying much humor. He certainly wasn't Clayton Moore's straight man.

    Back when we were kids, every true Lone Ranger fan dreamed of having one of these.

    I really don't generally enjoy Depp, but something about that trailer (maybe the way Silver seems like such an important character!!) makes it sound like good fun. Although I only kinda liked the first Pirates/Caribbean movie, and never saw another, still I think for a one-shot picture this could be fine for a summer escape adventure.

    I am so confused by the casting of Johnny Depp as Tonto. There weren't any Native American actors available? Color me puzzled.

    That said, my dad had the original radio shows on cassette when I was little. We'd listen to them on road trips, and oh my gosh, I adore the original story of Silver! "No; I'll call you ... SILVER. Yes! Silver!" With that long, drawn out first syllable, long pause on the L in Silllllllllver. I can hear it in my head now, thirty years down the road.

    Wikipedia:

    " In a 2002 interview, Depp stated that he has Native American ancestry;[SIZE=2][9][/SIZE] in 2011, he specified, "I guess I have some Native American [in me] somewhere down the line. My great-grandmother was quite a bit of Native American, she grew up Cherokee or maybe Creek Indian. Makes sense in terms of coming from Kentucky, which is rife with Cherokee and Creek."[SIZE=2][10][/SIZE]"

    Shrug, may or may not be accurate... no reason to doubt it though. At elast he's not trying to open a casino with it.

    When I got my first horse at 13 (after a three week summer riding camp ) he was white (flea bitten gray). When I got him, he was very underweight. After I had his teeth done and got his weight up, he began rearing. I boarded at a small, self-care barn with a bunch of other kids and basically no adults who knew anything so, we started playing the lone ranger and I, of course, got to be the lone ranger. Then I joined 4-H and realized the rearing was a problem and broke him of it but I had outgrown playing lone ranger by then anyway. Horse turned in to the perfect kids first horse and I'd kill for his clone now that I'm much older.
