Bruckheimer Asks You: Who Should Play the Lone Ranger?

Director Jerry Bruckheimer is out and about doing press for his next movie Confessions of a Shopaholic, but while he's at it, he's chatting a bit about upcoming projects, like The Lone Ranger. Bruckheimer confirms that the script is all set and Johnny Depp has signed on to play Tonto — but who should play the Lone Ranger himself? Who should portray the masked ranger, trotting about on his trusty horse, Silver? In an interview Bruckheimer says he thinks viewers should suggest the next Lone Ranger.

Here we've got an actual director putting forth a recast challenge! My first thought is George Clooney, though that may partially be because I think Clooney and Depp would make for a ridiculously beautiful and funny duo in this story. What do you think?

I think Jason David Frank would be perfect as the Lone Ranger. He was on "Power Rangers" and on an episode he was dressed as the Lone Ranger and he was called the "White Stranger" and he was great as him. I would love to see him as the Lone Ranger. :o)

Yes, Viggo Mortensen (Mortensen, people) is perfect!

I would have said Joaquin Phoenix because I think he could hold his own against Johnny. But now....he's lost his mind.

Aaron Eckhart and George Clooney--either would be a great choice.

Aaron Eckhart. Loved him as a cowboy in "The Missing"--the world needs more!
