Ryan Gosling: 'Lone Ranger' with Johnny Depp?

Ryan Gosling may be joining Johnny Depp in Disney’s upcoming film adaptation of The Lone Ranger!

The 30-year-old actor would play the titular character, who’s a masked lawman, while Johnny would play his Native American sidekick, Tonto.

The Wrap explains that it’s still a little early and Ryan‘s packed schedule may not allow him to take on the role.

The Lone Ranger is set for a 2014 release and will be directed by Gore Verbinski, who helmed the first three films in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

    I love Johnny and think he’s a fantastic actor. However, couldn’t they find a real American Indian to play the part? Kevin Costner didn’t have any problems casting Dances With Wolves. Just saying.

    Johnny Depp is part native American, Cherokee.
    I believe his grandmother is cherokee, in any case, he looks native american to me and in Hollywood if you look the part, you are the part.

    I agree about the Native American comments, but that aside, I’m drooling. Two of my favorite actors in one movie? Holy sh*t is all I have to say.

    @JM: JM, both of Johnny Depp’s grandfathers are Native American. I think he’s like 40 percent NA or something.

    He looks it, too.

    Disney better not turn this into a comedy like what was done to the Lone Ranger’s grandnephew The Green Hornet.
