Johnny Depp’s 12 Weirdest Characters: Where Will Tonto Rank?

|

We got our first glimpse of The Lone Ranger this morning, tweeted by none other than megaproducer Jerry Bruckheimer himself, who knows how to get people excited. And just this little tease of Johnny Depp’s outlandish Tonto costume is indeed enough to get us revved up. “What’s coming will show you why this isn’t going to be your grandfather’s Lone Ranger and Tonto…,” Bruck teased before posting the pic. The movie just finished its first week of filming, after all sorts of delays, so we’re trying to keep expectations low for a while. We do like how Depp manages to keep such a serious look on his face while wearing an entire dead bird on his head.

Naturally, any photo of Johnny in an extravagant costume brings to mind all the other kooky characters he’s brought to life. And makes us wonder, where will Tonto — and for that matter, his other upcoming character, Dark Shadows vampire Barnabas — fit in with the likes of the Mad Hatter, Willy Wonka and Edward Scissorhands? Peruse our list of 12 (we tried to bring it down to 10 but just couldn’t) of his weirdest alter egos, and then vote for your favorite!
