We now have the lead for Gore Verbinksi’s The Lone Ranger, and the masked man will be played by the whitest man in Hollywood, Armie Hammer, otherwise known as the Winklevii in The Social Network. That’s good news, I suppose, as I liked Hammer’s performance, and Johnny Depp as Tonto is an … interesting choice, though it’s pretty frustrating to see that they were unwilling to cast an actual Native American in the role. Gah. F*cking Hollywood. Why go for authenticity when you can just go for the big money grab, right? (Source: The Playlist)
