The Lone Ranger

Are we supposed to be upset by Johnny Depp playing Tonto?
[he claims Native American heritage...probably about as much as what's her name in Massachusetts]

    Would'nt have been my choice----Maybe he got the feeling from this older flick he did
    The original Tonto "Jay Silverheels" came from 6 Nations in Southern Ontario.

    I guess Wes Studi was busy

    I also don't think Johnny Depp was ever a pirate in real life.

    [outrage!]

    Look at the what the Music industry forces down our throats these days. Why would the movie industry be any different?

    I don't think that **** ever had a real scissors disability, either.

    He does have a mentally challenged Leo DiCaprio as a brother though.

    Robert Downey Jr. playing an Australian playing an urban African American soldier in Vietnam, now there's something. I'm going to Lone Ranger just to ID the set locations. They spent a fortune filming here.

    Steven: don't go Full **** on us, OK?

    I'm more upset that the character Tonto is being played by Captain Jack Sparrow in drag than what the actor's race is

    Interesting how any ethnicity can play an Italian-American or a Jew and nobody gets upset. In Mobsters the only Italian in the cast plays a Jew, what is up with that?

    You used the word ****, that is deeply offensive and punishable by a momma grizzly kicking you in the toodles.

    But why are not all the people getting apoplectic about Bill Maher storming his castle? Could it be that in reality they know that it is not worth getting all bent out of shape?

    or maybe because they weren't a blind drunk pretend journalist from Breibart they got the context and realized it was about Fox and not the precious Princess

    the douchetard got kicked out of the venue so he then decided to act like the **** he is

    If only it stopped with the blind drunk "journalist."

    They filmed here for Public Enemies. Part of it 50 miles from my house at Little Bohemia...

    no ... the rest of the pretend cyber journalists all joined in because it just fit with what they know in their hearts

    I used Full **** in the context used in the movie, Tropic Thunder. As applied to Steven's trolling efforts, its use is warranted and absolutely hilarious.

    you need to turn on your network filter so it comes out 'Full Special'

    I know. Some have been banned for less.

    Back to the Lone Ranger:

    I think it would be great if they include a little cameo scene where LR and Tonto, for whatever reason, are in an opera house and the the Wm. Tell overture is playing.
    The GOP big tent now is the size of a pup tent, its floor splattered with guano.

    Their letters requesting unbanning were not, I say not, written on the back of a $50 dollar bill. Tontos!

    I think it would be better if they include a DOMA joke. T & LR may be the first Western Gay couple.
