So whos going to play Butch Cavendish then? They cant leave out the real main enemy of Lone Ranger you know! Thou it looks like his part is going to be the righthand man in this film. I hope Barry Pepper plays him if the character is in.

Ruth Wilson could make a good addition to the cast, I think she's great on the UK series Luther.
