Johnny Depp Playing Sparrow, Hatter, Native American

September 25, 2008


Disney has revealed that Johnny Depp will be returning to screens as Captain Jack Sparrow in a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean, has joined the cast of The Lone Ranger as Tonto, and, as rumored, will play the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland adaptation. In celebration of the announcement, Disney decided to humiliate the actor:

In addition to Depp, who took the stage dressed as Jack Sparrow while wearing the Lone Ranger mask, this year’s event also featured the cast of "High School Musical" plus Dwayne Johnson, Miley Cyrus, John Travolta and Robin Williams. Adam Sandler appeared in a pretaped sequence with the studio chairman. And Cook even had a conversation with the four-legged star of "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."

"So, Johnny, we were thinkin' it might be fun if you dressed up as Captain Sparrow for our little announcement party. How 'bout it?"

"Uhhh, yeah, I don't know..."

"Come on, Johnny. It would really mean a lot to us. It'll be great."

"Well, you guys have always been good to me, so OK, I'll wear it."

"Also, this black mask."


"You know, like Lone Ranger."

"But I'm not playing the Lone Ranger; I'm playing Tonto. And why would I be dressed as both Lone Ranger and a pirate at the same time? This doesn't make any sense."

"Still though. Everyone will love it. Come on, Johnny."

"Fine, I'll wear the mask."

"And this crazy hat."


"FINE. Be that way. Just don't interrupt me when I'm having the conversation with the dog."
