Johnny Depp - Sparrow's Run Inspired Depp's Lizard In Rango

CAPTAIN JACK SPARROW's running inspired JOHNNY DEPP's new animated lizard in RANGO.
The movie pirate studied reptiles to perfect some of Sparrow's mannerisms and so when it came time to play a lizard on film, he knew exactly what was required.
He tells WENN, "I've always had an affinity for lizards. When (director) Gore (Verbinski) and I were doing Pirates 1,2, 3 and Captain Jack had to run, it was a very specific run that I wanted.
"I saw this footage of a lizard running across the water and it was the strangest thing I've ever seen. So I said, 'Gore it's gotta be like a lizard running,' and he said absolutely.
"So I feel that Rango was planted in Gore's brain from that lizard run. When he actually called me and said I want you to play a lizard I said, 'I'm halfway there!'"
And even Depp's kids are well aware of dad's lizard love.
He adds, "They actually me the Lizard King... I've forced them to address me like that since they were tikes (young kids)."
