Johnny Depp is one of those actors who you will love irrespective of the role they will take up in a movie because despite masking his traditionally likeable character he still comes off as a funny even in serious roles.

I mean, he has proved himself in character portrayals in movies that found him box office success like, Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Tourism, name it. For this he has a number of international awards to his name.  The movie is set in the early 1930s where Will as a boy idolises a legend known as the Lone Ranger. He encounters a dummy that is revealed to be a real native American named Tonto, an elder who proceeds to recount his experiences with The Lone Ranger.

He then changes his name from Will to Tonto. Tonto is admirable because he is a native American spirit warrior who joins hands with John Reid, a masked man of the law with whom he works to fight against greed and corruption in the American Old West. This movie partly tackles the racism that Red Indians faced in the past and this is an issue that had to be delicately dealt with.

Kevin Robinson the executive producer of Medium Rare, a site that focuses on the work of women and people of colour in film, television, and video games explains that long before The Lone Ranger hit theatres, there was plenty of debate over how stereotype-enforcing or offensive the depiction of Tonto was going to be.

Robinson said, “To the script’s credit, Tonto is depicted as respectfully as you’re likely to get.”
This is another movie on which the director, Gore Verbinski, is working on with Depp. The two have worked together on Pirates of the Caribbean.
