In a few years, we’ll see whether the “Rango” animators were helped by Depp and the others pretending they were four-legged creatures. “I just hope some of this makes it into the DVD afterwards,” Root laughed, remembering the shoot. “Seeing Johnny Depp and me on workhorses with saddles on them, pretending we’re on real horses? That’s pretty funny stuff.”
There is a very interesting short video clip on the MTV Movies Blog with Nighy in which he discusses Rango. (He's in the cast, playing a rattlesnake-- did we know he was in this film?? ETA- yes, we did- Heather posted this back in Feb, but I just have a terrible memory, as usual!) For one thing, he says that the title may be "Cheap as Dirt." When I first read the blurb, I thought that had to be a joke, but in the clip, Nighy seems dead serious. Anyway, he discusses his character and the film a little. Check it out!
