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.

Love both if them. Fantastic actors.

# 2

Ryan Gosling and Johnny Depp together in a movie? Perfection!

# 3

I love Ryan, but Johnny would no-doubt overshadow him.

# 4

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.

No offense to Johnny. I think he’s a fantastic actor. However, couldn’t they have found an American Indian to play Tonto? Kevin Costner didn’t have any problems casting Dances With Wolves. Just saying.

sorry for the dup post. JJ’s acting up again

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.

@JM: I think he is a Native American. Not full blooded but who is full blooded nowadays?

# 9

Yep, Depp is part Native American

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.

oh shut up. you have white actors playing black characters these days, frida pinto, an indian playing a palestinian so why is johnny getting the heat?

@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.

I hope so!!! I love both of them!!

That is awesome. I love these actors!

…Yeah, everyone’s part native american, Cherokee. LOL *smh*. I like Ryan, thumbs up.
…Hope Depp doesn’t turn Tonto into an oddball.

Ryan gosling is adorable and hilarious! and seems like so much fun, further proven by this ellen degeneres video – – really, can he get any better?

Yeah…I love that Johnny is part Native American..that’s why he is so special and charming!!..he is adorable,and the other guy is good actor too

I like Ryan ,but I prefer an actor with more trajectory,anyway he is good

If Johnny was born in the USA he is automatically a native American, LOL

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