William Fichtner Will Now Fight Lone Ranger

Budget-related production delays on Lone Ranger last week cost the film its Dwight Yoakam, leaving Disney in need of someone to play the villain, Butch Cavendish. Thankfully, computers have shown that Yoakam's head lies exactly between the heads of William Fichtner and Clint Howard, providing two obvious replacements, depending on if you want to go sinister or goofy. Since Disney is apparently leaning toward sinister, they've hired Fichtner to take Yoakam's part on the project. He'll be fighting Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp, who are playing the Lone Ranger and Tonto, respectively. Depending on where the recent budget cuts came from, there may also be CGI werewolves. You have to wait and see.
