Fans of The Lone Ranger got their very first appear as Johnny Depp dressed up as Tonto earlier this year, and now the actor has given an explanation about the Native American’s appear. Depp stated that the modern version of Tonto was inspired by a painting by Kirby Sattler.

Depp stated:

“I’d truly observed a painting by an artist named Kirby Sattler, and looked at the face of this warrior and believed: That is it… The stripes down the face and across the eyes . . . it seemed to me like you could nearly see the separate sections of the person, if you know what I mean.”

Depp told Entertainment Weekly that the lines across Tonto’s face represent various sections of his personality. Depp said:

“There’s this extremely wise quarter, a extremely tortured and hurt section, an angry and rageful section, and a really understanding and special side. I saw these parts, virtually like dissecting a brain, these slivers of the individual. That makeup inspired me.”

Depp also said that the crow in Sattler’s painting located its way into his costume. Depp added:

“It just so happened Sattler had painted a bird flying straight behind the warrior’s head. It looked to me like it was sitting on top rated. I thought: Tonto’s got a bird on his head. It is his spirit guide in a way. It’s dead to others, but it’s not dead to him. It is very a lot alive.”

Here’s a appear at Johnny Depp as Tonto in the new “The Lone Ranger.”

The new film stars Johnny Depp as Tonto, Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger, and will be directed by Gore Verbinski. Depp stated that the new movie will alter the dynamic of Tonto and the Lone Ranger’s relationship.

Depp said:

“I bear in mind watching (the Tv series) as a kid . . . and going: ‘Why is the [expletive] is the Lone Ranger telling Tonto what to do? … When the thought came up (Tonto to be the central character for the movie) I started thinking about Tonto and what could be done in my own small way to try — remove isn’t possible — but reinvent the relationship, to try to take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans, not only in ‘The Lone Ranger,’ but the way Indians were treated all through history of cinema, and turn it on its head.”

We call the mode that shuts off all radios "airplane mode". What do we call a phone mode that blocks tracking, requires SSL & uses Tor?
