Mr ? I don’t quite know

I did a post on Leonard Nimoy recently. It was well-received. I don’t want to get to where all of my posts fall into any type of set thing: I want you to feel the suspense as palpable (whatever the heck that really means). But, as I puzzled over the manual to setting up my new Roku device (hooks my TV to my wireless so I can watch Hulu-plus and such), I saw a tape which had been left by our local librarian for me to sell on Amazon. I had never watched it as the subject matter is of little interest to me; however, the star is.

Johnny Depp is an enigma (love that word). So, I decided to do just a bit of a post on him, enough to show that – whether you like him or not – he is an extremely versatile actor.

Ok – two things:  First, the clips are PG-13 (Be careful!) Second, if you really don’t want to watch Johnny, then read the post, skip all the clips except watch the next to the last one (Benny and Joon) – you will love that movie!

Johnny Depp – John Christopher “Johnny” Depp II (born June 9, 1963) born in Owensboro, KY ( I didn’t know that), has 2 children and was married to Lori Anne Allison (1983–1985).
Enough of that stuff – Here is his versatile movies, in my opinion (no particular order):
Ed Wood
John Dillinger
Sweeney Todd

Pirates of the Caribbean

21 Jump Street
A Nightmare on Elm Street
Edward Scissorhands

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Alice in Wonderland
Dark Shadows

Sleepy Hollow
Rango – voice
Corpse Bride – voice
What I did find interesting is that the wiki entry did not mention one of my very favorite movies “Bennie and Joon”. It is a marvelous movie.

All in all, what I wanted most to comment here is that Johnny Depp is certainly one of the most diverse people I have ever seen on screen. He has played nearly everything from a talented special needs person to a raging, killing barber to a cartoon animal to a swashbuckling pirate captain.

Point – It is not so much a person’s movies that we should remember as it is their talent and believability that should be noted.  We should pay the same heed to people in general.  Stop looking at their “shows” and pay attention to their believability and their talents.

    I’m not a huge fan, but he is a very good actor and seems to be able to play just about any role, not a lot of actors can achieve that.

      My point exactly, and I feel we should look at people the same way. All are special and unique in some way and most can play “a lot of roles”. This includes ourselves. We need to be a fan of ourselves.
