<i>Rubicon</i> Star James Badge Dale May Play Lone Ranger’s Brother

Rubicon star James Badge Dale, who was mentioned last month in connection with The Lone Ranger, is the frontrunner to play the title character’s older brother in the Disney Western, Deadline reports.

On the original radio series, Captain Dan Reid was the leader of the six Texas Rangers killed in an ambush by Butch Cavendish’s outlaw gang. Reid’s younger brother, the sole survivor of the attack, is nursed back to health by the Native American Tonto, who joins him in his mission to fight evil and bring Cavendish to justice.

Directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, the film stars Johnny Depp as Tonto and Armie Hammer as the Lone Ranger, with Ruth Wilson, Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper, Helena Bonham Carter and Dwight Yoakum. It begins production next month for a May 31, 2013, release.

Dale, who starred in the HBO miniseries The Pacific, recently wrapped World War Z. Deadline contends The Lone Ranger role will bump the actor from the shortlist to play Bruce Willis’ son in A Good Day to Die Hard.
