All eyes were on Johnny Depp as People's two-time Sexiest Man Alive walked his way down the red carpet at the world premiere of "The Lone Ranger" Saturday, June 22. About 3000 fans packed Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, screaming for Depp, who plays American Indian spirit warrior Tonto in the movie due out on July 3.
"This is surreal. I'm not used to this," said Gore Verbinski to USA Today, commenting on fans' passionate reaction to Depp's arrival. "I'm used to being on the set with Johnny where everyone knows each other and it's like 'Good morning, how you doing?' " Co-star Bryant Prince also had his say of it, "That sound can only be for Johnny Depp."
Armie Hammer, the Lone Ranger depicter, attended the premiere with his wife Elizabeth Chambers. "I think we just tried to make him human," he told LA Times about his character. "The original Lone Ranger was a great hero, but in this one you see him sort of struggle with being a hero."
William Fichtner and James Badge Dale were among other co-stars spotted on the red carpet to support the western flick.
"The Lone Ranger" also stars Helena Bonham Carter, who shows up in its recently-released TV spot alongside Hammer and Depp.
