Armie Hammer Is In Talks for Johnny Depp’s Lone Ranger

So far on board for The Lone Ranger: director Gore Verbinski, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and lone ranger Johnny Depp. Possibly on board: Armie Hammer, as famed sidekick Tonto. (Ryan Gosling was the last guy rumored for the role.) It'd be another high-profile gig for Hammer, who's got Clint Eastwood's J. Edgar and revisionist Snow White up next. Dude is on such a hot streak right now, he could probably walk into a party yelling "It's Hammer time!" and not everyone would roll their eyes. [Deadline]
