New pics from the set of The Lone Ranger as recently tweeted by Mr. Jerry Bruckheimer:
On another side of the coin I do have in my hot little hand, a picture of The Lone Ranger Star, none other than Johnny Depp himself, on the New Mexico studio set for the film.
HOWEVER, I am not at liberty to publish said pic at this time.
Schooled though as I am in the masscommunication and proliferation of gibberish, I can ever so eloquently offer this poetic description of the very, very, exciting, sought after imagery:
Johnny Depp, as you’ve seen him before…
Somehow expressing quirkiness, eccentricity and a subdued humility all in one ever so slight curl of the lip, blankness of eye, and brow almost undetectably half cocked. All this range of emotion and subtle intrigue displayed as only a thespian of his stature could produce.
From behind shades of only slightly detectable blue, beneath a weathered ebony hat, which is crumpled atop his shaggy hairdo, Depp stands, Depp is…
on a studio lot at either dawn or dusk in Albuquerque New Mexico, having just walked between some StarWaggons® on the asphalt all around him (basically he’s walking around wearing these glasses with this hat).
I have other pics at the ready as well. Those too are Johnny Depp, looking like Johnny Depp, on a starry night after a long days work in the Q. COMING SOON!
P.S. Why isn’t New Mexico manufacturing their own version of StarWaggons® already?!?
INTRODUCING Mah Woo May, the Comanche name given to Johnny Depp, which translates to, “Shape Shifter”.
Sure as the casting of Johnny Depp in the upcoming Bruckheimer/Verbinski film adaptation of The Lone Ranger as the Native American character, Tonto drew fire, so might this move by The Comanche Nation.
Regardless of critics, artistic interpretation/representation met history, culture, unity and family when the world famous actor was formally adopted into the Comanche Nation at a private ceremony in Albuquerque, NM last week.

No such hullabaloo is or has been raised about the Lone, Texas born, Ranger himself being portrayed by a hunky Californian…
More of both in character here.
Johnny Depp says a horse saved his life.
The 48-year-old actor was thrown from the powerful animal while filming forthcoming Western movie ‘The Lone Ranger’ but he believes the strong bond he forged with the creature made it react instinctively to ensure his fall wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
Johnny – who plays the Lone Ranger’s Native American sidekick Tonto – said: “I’m lucky to be here. I’ve done a number of films on horseback and I’ve taken a couple of spills but this was a violent one.
“I had a good relationship with the horse, which was named Scout, and when I look at the tape I can see that Scout saved my life.
“I went down badly and I was dragged for 25 yards and in the end the horse just jumped over me and clipped me with his back legs.”
Despite being a huge star, the ‘Dark Shadows’ actor insists he isn’t a very ambitious person and doesn’t choose his roles by guessing how successful they might be.
When he embarked on his acting career, Johnny – who has children Lily-Rose, 12, and 10-year-old Jack with partner Vanessa Paradis – just wanted to be able to look back on his body of work and be proud of it.
He added in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I never knew where I was going to go. I never really thought about where any of it was going.
“I only knew that, regardless of success or failure, I always wanted to some day be able to look back and go, ‘I did alright. I’m proud of what I did. I didn’t sell out.’
“I’ve never felt particularly ambitious or driven, although I like to create stuff, whether it’s a little doodle, a drawing, a small painting or a movie or a piece of music, so I suppose I’m driven by that. Everything I’ve done has felt natural.”

Depp with Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly and Vice President Rex Lee Jim
Actor Johnny Depp, who will play Tonto in the upcoming film version of The Lone Ranger, has begun filming in Monument Valley and last week was visited on set by Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly and Vice President Rex Lee Jim.
Gayle Dine’ Chacon, Surgeon General of the Navajo Nation, spoke with Depp at length, particularly about preventing youth suicide on the reservation, and admitted to being “star struck.” “He is a very charming man, very gracious and very concerned as well,” she said, according to a People.com story. “He probably spent a good hour with us. Everybody else left the set, but he was still there. … You feel that you are the only one there – that he’s just focusing on you.
Pictured with the Surgeon General of Navajo Nation, Dr. Gayle Dine’Chacon in Monument Valley today, this candid shot lends a more live-action look to the storied character as portrayed by the legendary actor.
The Lone Ranger production, based out of Albuquerque, New Mexico is slated to continue through August – with additional locations, such as this in Utah and Colorado, scheduled for a May 31, 2013 release!
People magazine reports:
Johnny Depp is one of the world’s great movie stars. But he can play the role of rock star pretty convincingly, too.
The actor, 48, grabbed his guitar and joined Marilyn Manson on stage Wednesday night for a rollicking performance at Revolver magazine’s Golden Gods Awards concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles.
But in true Depp style, he played it cool – keeping his head low, almost to the point of being incognito. And indeed, it took a while for the crowd to realize that a Hollywood superstar was in their midst.
With an ivory guitar slung low on his thigh, Depp wore a black button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up, black boots, black jeans and a black cowboy hat with a white feather pulled down, covering most of his face.
After running through the song “Sweet Dreams,” Manson, 43, shouted to the crowd, “If you don’t recognize my personal friend … my personal savior, my personal guitar hero … Johnny Depp!” The crowd roared its approval.
Next they moved on the Manson’s “The Beautiful People.” All the while Depp was straight faced, focusing on his playing, though he broke into an occasional smile – absolutely in control, bemused at times, but obviously enjoying himself.
The actor has made a point of hanging out with rock stars lately. Back in February he chilled out with Sir Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen at the Foo Fighters’ after-Grammys party.
The Lone Ranger is still looking for men, 18 to 45 with full beards. Please call Elizabeth (EG Casting) at 505-227-2920
The lifelong muse and immortal beloved of Tim Burton is in town for her part in Disney’s The Lone Ranger movie.
While New Mexico is known for playing it cool and letting our visiting celebs go about their b’niss uninterrupted like…Helena Bonham Carter was particularly unbothered by the kindest gentlest local celeb in town when they were face to face at our own uptown Trader Joe’s.
If she’d been a snake, she couldda bit him. But our unassuming, beloved morning radio show bearer of sunshine and light, Donnie Chase of 100.3 The Peak couldn’t have ID’d the star to save his life or hers when they recently crossed paths.
encounter sighting prompted a storm of celeb encounter reports on the JTD Morning Show facebook page.

Friday night über producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeted a call for Albuquerque restaurant suggestions. He’s certainly not suffering any shortage of sweet eats as he’s also tweeted an abundance of cake on the Albuquerque Studios set of The Lone Ranger here in NM. Werd in to OHI also says that five star craft service is a set staple.
Sunday, whether trekking out to another filming location, sight seeing or restaurant hunting it looks like The Lone Ranger producer ventured North of Albuquerque…
The Taos News reports:
Film producer Jerry Bruckheimer may have been the subject of a routine traffic stop in Taos County today.
An individual named Jerome Leon Bruckheimer was pulled over by police on State Road 75 this afternoon in southern Taos County. Local police dispatch stated it was likely a routine traffic stop but offered no other details.
That also happens to be the full name of the renowned film producer who is heading up the Disney film, “The Lone Ranger,” starring Johnny Depp that is currently shooting in New Mexico.
There aren’t a lot of pictures of Johnny Depp on the internet and he’s not very good looking…but for you, my beloved online friends, I braved pages and pages of web content searching for images of the chiseled cheek bones, dreamy eyes and perfect pout that filled my seventh grade dreams (à la 21 Jump St.)…
Ehhmm, anyway…the reports are IN that Mr. Depp himself has been hard at work in ABQ over the past few days.
Now in star sighting news of the day OHI has learned that Depp was on hand locally, completing test shots with an equine co-star.
Here for your viewing pleasure are the results of my stock image search, to help your minds eye in seeing that that would go something like this:
Between dueling chopper shots* of a mysterious and remote set, to our own ABC** affiliate broadcasting their interview with the New Mexico extras casting director for The Lone Ranger (record scratch…aka “Silver Bullet” – worst kept secret in town btw and there’s a lot of ‘em) Disney’s The Lone Ranger continues kicking-up dust in the New Mexico desert like no other production before it has.
You may recall this whole extravaganza kicked-off when this was the shoot that almost never was, but director, producer and stars alike dug in their boot heels and made it happen. Salary cuts and budget wrangling aside The Lone Ranger will likely continue to spur controversy right up until its DVD/Blu-ray™ release.
The film has already landed on apocalyptic predictions lists as possibly being “the last movie you’ll ever see“, as its first estimated premiere date aligns with the Mayan calendar’s forecast of the end of the world.
So while Marvel’s** entire crew of mighty Avengers were able to sweep in and out of town with ~less ruckus than TLR has had thus far, don’t count the masked man, his loyal sidekick or New Mexico out of the controversial headlines for the duration of filming.
Why, even our little space here on the web has been hit with a trickling trail of fury when this blogger chose to publish these pics sent in to us of some rather generic western props – leading to some healthy industry banter?
“Shame on you for posting this! Is your purpose to support the NM film industry and the local New Mexican’s [sic] it employees [sic] or are you one of the weak links in the chain that will cause what remains of the NM film industry to most certainly disappear?” – fb comment
“It must be pictures like these that drove them away from Hollywood….”
- Industry Journalist
Wielding this kind of
power delusion to stir-up such controversy, perhaps this blogger can now lead the charge in the next round of TLR Escándalo:
One of the most hotly contested debates from the word “Yo” on this project was the casting of the still smoldering Johnny Depp as Tonto.
While this touch of Chinese, Mexican girl with smatterings of alleged Native American and Irish descent can appreciate the demand to cast true to race, the bigger picture on this big picture is clear, and that is that hundreds of many races now have a chance at work on this sure to be blockbuster New Mexico production (unlike this lost production – but I’m the one running film out of NM).
BUT MOREOVER – The smoking (pun intended) hot Armie Hammer, who’s cast as The Lone Ranger himself, IS NOT FROM TEXAS!
The LONE RANGER was written as a Texas cowboy qué no? Boy is from L.A. Escándaloso up!
