The modern god of character-acting almost DIED!!!
Do you realize how devastating that would be!?!
We'd be wearing black for DAYS if something ever happened to Johnny Depp. It's just too scary a thought!
But unfortunately, Depperz did experience a near-death experience during the filming of Lone Ranger. We previously reported the incident when it happened, but now we get to see him explain the story in detail!
Watch him unravel the frightening tale to David Letterman (above)!
We'll give you a hint: HOOVES!
After he tells the story, David goes, "where are the stunt people, for heaven's sake? You're Tonto! You don't need that!"
But if we remember correctly (which we do), one of the film's divers DID die on set!! Jeezus, what a risky film!
Moving along though… if you wanna check out Johnny's musical talent fuse with Bill Carter & The Blame for their performance of Anything Made of Paper, press that magical play button …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
