Here's a crude rendition of him as the LR.
Worthington has nowhere near the acting chops of Antonio Banderas.
He's a pretty boy that looks like Hollywood's ideal leading man but in reality, he's a sub-par actor at best. And cheap (his quote is only $3 million per film).
With a property like the Lone Ranger and a Johnny Depp attached, Bruckheimer and Disney will be looking at guys like McConaghey, Bale, Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhall - even a Bradley Cooper in the role.
It won't be a TV guy and it won't be Sam Worthington. That guy has the personality of a lump of potatoes.
