Johnny Depp's close call on the "Lone Ranger" set almost ended his life. The Huffington Post reported on Feb. 22 that the actor visited the "Late Show with David Lettermen" talk show. He talked about the close call he had while working on the film.
Johnny plays the role of Native American warrior Tonto in the film. He was riding a horse during one of the scenes. The horse took off and saddle slipped off. Johnny then hung for dear life. The horse wouldn’t stop running.
Letterman said that Depp could've seriously gotten hurt. One false move and the actor could've died. The actor said he landed on his back, and the horse almost stepped on him. A crew member was also injured on the set of the "Lone Ranger."
The actor is now taking a break from acting to focus on music. He's thinking of recording a pirate-themed album. The album will include songs by Macy Gray and Courtney Love.
The Johnny Depp close call probably shook the actor up. Still, he's looking to cash in on the "Pirates of the Carribean" franchise. He wants to collaborate with popular singers from the 90s.
