Tonto Johnny Depp Meets Real Native Americans

Filed under: Film FlickersJohnny Depp

Johnny Depp is almost unrecognizable as Tonto from The Lone Ranger! We're still not full convinced that's him!

When we first hear the news that he was taking this role, we were worried that Johnny portraying a Native American might be offensive to the leaders of the Navajo Nation.

But they seem to be fine with it! Just look at them getting all chummy!

They must be aware that Johnny and director Gore Verbinski (who directed the Pirates of the Caribbean movies) are planning to twist the classic stereotypes and tropes from old Westerns.

The president of the Navajo Nation said:

Johnny Depp Wants Better For Tonto In His Lone Ranger Flick

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyJohnny Depp

That's just the sort of guy he is!

Though it has been on the back-burner for awhile, Johnny Depp is still signed on to star in the Disney adaptation of the of The Lone Ranger. The role opposite Johnny remains vacant as well, though there have been some who have almost made the cut. Still, just because the film hasn't started production yet, it doesn't mean Johnny hasn't thought about it. In fact, he's given the film a great deal of consideration and the first thing he wants to change in his version is the relationship between the Lone Ranger and his trusted sidekick. He explains:

“I remember watching it as a kid, with Jay Silverheels and Clayton Moore, and going: ‘Why is the f—ing Lone Ranger telling Tonto what to do?’ I liked Tonto, even at that tender age, and knew Tonto was getting the unpleasant end of the stick here. That’s stuck with me. And when the idea came up [for the movie], I started thinking about Tonto and what could be done in my own small way try to — ‘eliminate’ isn’t possible — but reinvent the relationship, to attempt to take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans, not only in The Lone Ranger, but the way Indians were treated throughout history of cinema, and turn it on its head.”

That's a very good point, one we bet the folks at Disney were all too thrilled to hear.

The issue hits a bit close to home for Johnny as he reveals that he's actually part Native American, possibly "Cherokee or maybe Creek," derived from his great grandmother.

We're pleased to see him have a bit of pride in his heritage! That's something everyone should have! Kudos!
