ACTOR JOHNNY DEPP TELLS “CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH CHARLES OSGOOD” HE LIKES MOVIE ROLES THAT ARE A LITTLE DANGEROUS AND HAVE “A BIT OF A TIGHTROPE ELEMENT”
Actor Johnny Depp likes movie roles that are a bit dangerous and include the risk of failure, he tells Lee Cowan in an interview for this weekend’s CBS SUNDAY MORNING WITH CHARLES OSGOOD to be broadcast June 30, 2013 (9:00 AM ET) on the CBS Television Network.
“Hopefully, whatever you’re approaching has some kind of, you know, tightrope element,” Depp tells Cowan. “I think that if you don’t feel that, if you don’t feel some kind of, not fear necessarily, but you know, the possibility of falling flat on your face, I think you must challenge that.”
Depp, known for eclectic roles in such films as “The Pirates of The Caribbean” and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” is now taking on the role of Tonto in a film version of the iconic TV series “The Lone Ranger,” directed by Gore Verbinski. This time around, though, Tonto is much more than a sidekick to the Lone Ranger.
“I was always uncomfortable with the idea that Tonto was given sort of instructions, you know, and sent off,” Depp says. “I mean, the Lone Ranger’s a nice guy, but what, how come he’s treating the other guy like… lesser?”
Cowan’s interview with Depp will be broadcast June 30, 2013. CBS SUNDAY MORNING is broadcast Sundays (9:00 AM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Rand Morrison is the executive producer.
