Goodbye Ryan Gosling, Hello Armie Hammer? "Social Network" Star in Talks to Join Johnny Depp in "Lone Ranger" 


Last week, we told you that Ryan Gosling was in talks to co-star in Disney's big screen adaptation of "The Lone Ranger" opposite Johnny Depp's Tonto. But sadly, Gosling was unable to join the Gore Verbinski-directed project because of scheduling conflicts.

Now, Deadline is saying that "The Social Network's" Armie Hammer is in early talks to star in the title role. Apparently, the story will center on Depp's character, which, as you may have guessed, would be an "unreliable narrator."

Can you imagine Hammer as the Lone Ranger? With a mask on? I think he would be perfect!

Confirmed! Johnny Depp to Make "21 Jump Street" Cameo! 


Once upon a time, many moons ago, there was a young, unknown actor who stole viewers' hearts in the Fox series, "21 Jump Street." His name was Johnny Depp.

Years later, Depp is set to return to the world of "21 Jump Street" in a small cameo role according to ComingSoon. The Columbia Pictures production is filming right now.

The big screen adaptation is going to be directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and stars Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Brie Larson, Rob Riggle, DeRay Davis, Dave Franco, and Jake Johnson.

The original Fox series ran from 1987 to 1991 where Depp played Officer Tom Hanson. The new film has Hill and Tatum as undercover cops who are assigned to work in schools. Cube is set to star as the police chief.

I wonder what Hill wrote for Depp's cameo. It's supposed to be really funny! We'll find out on March 16, 2012 when the film is set for release.
