Fichtner replaces Yoakam as Cavendish

Disney has tapped William Fichtner to replace Dwight Yoakam as Butch Cavendish in The Lone Ranger. According to Deadline.com, Fichtner will play the bad guy that Yoakam was set to take on before the actor-singer dropped out Friday because of a scheduling conflict. Fichtner just completed filming Elysuim for Sony and MRC with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, as well as Phantom opposite Ed Harris and David Duchovny.
