Could George Clooney Be The Lone Ranger?

AICN's sources claim that George Clooney has shown a lot of interest in the role. Clooney is a fantastic actor, but something about him as The Lone Ranger doesn't rub me right. Don't get me wrong, he's certainly a better choice than Nicolas Cage, who was once up for the role.
