Who was the masked man? Well it could be George Clooney as the Lone Ranger.

On Wednesday, Disney announced that Johnny Depp had been cast in Jerry Bruckheimer's upcoming reboot of The Lone Ranger. This was revealed at a massive presentation that Disney held all day in Hollywood, and the finale that featured a live marching band was for The Lone Ranger so it sounds like it is being treated as kind of a big deal. But who is going to be playing the masked ranger? Merrick on AICN has a source who claims that George Clooney has shown a lot of interest in the role.

George Clooney as the Lone Ranger, Johnny Depp as Tonto. That's going to be a big movie. Still no news on who will direct it. Johnny Depp was brilliant in Dead Man and I can't think of any other Western he has been in.

What do you think? Is this perfect casting? Are they both a bit too old for the parts?
