Tom Wilkinson - Tom Wilkinson Talks Lone Ranger Role

Subscribe to Tom Wilkinson alerts

Tom Wilkinson's 'The Lone Ranger' villain will ''start out nice''.

The British actor is tipped to play Latham Cole, a villainous railroad tycoon in the Gore Verbinski-directed movie - starring Johnny Depp - and although he refused to confirm the identity of his character, he did reveal some details.

He told BANG Showbiz: ''I'm going to do 'The Lone Ranger', it's the 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' people. I go in a couple of weeks until the middle of July.

''I can't confirm who I'm playing, but I can say he starts out nice. I Hope so.''

Although Tom has starred in a number of high profile movies including 'The Full Monty' and 'Batman Begins' he admitted he rarely gets recognised by fans.

He said: ''A guy came up to me the other day and was like 'Aren't you an actor or something?' I was like 'F***ing hell' and then when people say 'You're an actor aren't you? What have I seen you in?' and do I have the courage to go 'I haven't the faintest idea, how am I meant to know?' ''
