Hi-Ho Silver!

Hey-ho, kiddos. I'm crawling out of my cave because I just learned that Disney is doing a big screen remake of The Lone Ranger. Yep. And it definitely looks like a spoof. The Ranger, guy in the white hat in the above picture, is played by Armie Hammer. And do you recognize that fella wearing the paint on his face and the dead crow (or is it a blackbird?) on his head? It's Johnny Depp as Tonto. Good grief, kimosabe.

Well, I have to say, this looks nothing like the Lone Ranger dudes I used to watch in glorious black and white on tv. But, hey, I'm all up for anything that will get the young folks interested in westerns and the old code of the west. Wonder how bad they skew that up.

If you're interested, you can find the pic and the article on Access Hollywood, which is where I found it.

Happy trails, muchachos!



  1. What a hoot!! I laughed when I read your post. Can't wait to see this.

  2. LOL! You just know this movie is going to be weird.

  3. It looks like something I'll have to watch, but I want us to find out that Tonto was a white man who went native, like Grey Wolf. Otherwise, why not get a native actor?

  4. Alison, since they're going for comedy, I doubt we'll get much accuracy. And just from the looks of that picture, Johnny Depp will probably ham it up for all its worth.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Johnny Depp ham up a role? Devon, surely you jest! :-D
