More news of Johnny Depp from the Walt Disney Showcase in Hollywood today as the actor strolled on stage in Jack Sparrow costume but wearing the Lone Ranger mask.

After the music died down, Depp confirmed he has signed on for both Jerry Bruckheimer’s “The Lone Ranger” and a fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie.

Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio penned the film, a new take on the origin of the lawman. Disney later confirmed to IESB that Depp isn’t playing the titular character but his sidekick Tonto.
