stuhayes2010: Why Depp? Couldn't they find an out of work Native American actor to play tonto?


Yes, because people will be lining up around the block to see Native American actor no one's heard of as Tonto and a guy you also haven't heard of whose name sounds like a brand of baking soda as the Lone Ranger.

Marketing is racist.

That had to be an intentionally stupid question.

I predicted this would bomb and it is bombing hard. Even with Depp's Tonto as the focus of the movie no ONE GIVES A SHIAT about the Ranger in this day and age. Had they made this movie for a tenth of the money they MIGHT have had a sleeper hit on their  hands but this thing cost a quarter of a BILLION dollars. It is NEVER going to make its money back.  Disney should have written this off years ago.

I'm surprised I haven't heard more outrage about whitening up the native american character



Lots of Native Americans thought Tonto was a racist caricature in the first place. That's why they don't give a fark now.

Swashbuckling pirate movies. Not a big thing in 2003. "A movie based on a ride?" And they made a mint.

Verbinski + Depp, Disney figures they are invincible. "Depp will be great as Tonto! He can do all kinds of goofy shiat because he's an Indian! Just like in Pirates, but... Indian!"
They don't care if the film is good, they figured they'd make money even if it's overlong and half-assed, like the atrocious Pirates sequels. Just throw a bunch of action sequences in there and call it "summer popcorn fun". Time will tell if they lose money. Wouldn't shed a tear for them if they do.

However, I am put off by them using a very stupid actor to play Tonto.  Although, they may have looked up the spanish meaning for tonto and realized Depp is perfect for the role.

/In Mexico, Tonto is the guy seen driving a Nova

It looked like he was phoning it in this time. Goofy, exaggerated facial expressions from Pirates and his "Indian" voice sounds like like his Hunter S Thompson.

Super_pope: 

And like... what would be authentic enough for you?  Does he have to be full blooded?  Does he have to come from a tribe that would be local to the area the film is set in?  Cause Beach is Canadian.  Would it still be an outrage if HE was Tonto?  a native American?


The original Tonto WAS Canadian. His name was Jay Silverheels and he was from the Six Nations reserve in Brantford, Ontario.
