‘Lone Ranger’ cast call looks for extremes

It’s been awhile, but Hollywood is returning to Durango.

A casting call for the new Disney movie “Lone Ranger” starring Johnny Depp will take place starting at 2 p.m. March 23 at Fort Lewis College’s Theatre Department. Aspiring actors must be 18 years or older.

The casting call will be run by Los Angles-based Sande Alessi Casting, which also performed casting for the films “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Glee” and “The Social Network.”

“The Lone Ranger” will be shot in Colorado, New Mexico and Utah this summer.

According to the website for the Four Corners Film Office, producers are seeking “extreme character types,” including: thin, tall, short, skinny, odd features, huge nose, eyes, ears, lazy eye, grizzled and wrinkled faces and odd body types.

This includes adults taller than 6 feet, 6 inches and shorter than 4 feet, 5 inches.

Also, they are looking for people with any special abilities or circus-type performers.
