  • Big Brother

    Johnny Depp is an amazing actor. I want to see him star in a film with Angelina Jolie. A romantic comedy would be interesting.

  • Rita

    I like Gerard Butler than Johnny Depp these days.

  • Lindsay

    everyone talking trash about johnny can go to hell! obviously u can’t spot one of the greatest actors of our time! he’s his own person and what he’s into, he’s into and not hurting anyone or anything. great style and great everything!!

  • Chase

    He’s a good actor but this looks like Edward Scissorhand all over again.

  • mickey

    That poster is AWESOME. It’s just brilliant. I hope the movie is as good as the impression the poster gives. To say it looks like Edward Scissorhands all over again based on the poster and nothing at all of Sweeney Todd is about, is rather odd and shallow.

  • nika

    canĀ“t wait!

  • *yawn

    Most overrated actor in HW.

  • [~Famous~]

    Depp’s style is garbage. I never understood the direction he took his career in.

  • luv Brad+Angie+Johnny+Orly

    Johnny can do no wrong. Can’t wait 4 any movie he is in. He’s just a fabulous actor and always work his characters.

  • smiley

    I hope he gets an Oscar.

  • Jessica

    I think he’s on drugs so that turns me off.

  • Raquel

    I may be in the minority but why team up with Tim Burton again?
    I only enjoy a handful films by Burton.

    This may be another lackluster movie. That Charlie factory film could not compare to the original one.

  • Ariel

    Great actor but he looks like a bum these days.

  • Carol

    I hope he’s done with the Pirates franchise. The botched up job on part 3 is enough for him to see that.

  • Marla

    What has happened to him?

  • remember da truth

    Soooooo sexy!!! And he can do anything, from comedy to drama, from hated villain to pathos, from hero to anti-hero.

    LOVE Johnny, as a person, as an actor, as an artist, as a father. The smartest sex symbol in Hollywood, and the only heartthrob who consistently makes career decisions based on story and character, not on blockbuster status. Even Pirates he turned into an acting tour de force and showed his comedic side, which we hadn’t seen in a while.

    Give us more Johnny, Jared!

  • Marianne

    bad actor and bad father….

  • Yoyo

    Great actor but his hot o meter is now subzero.

  • Stewie Griffin

  • oy


  • Diana

    He’s ugly and he got so fat too.

  • black

    He lloks quite cool.

    But will it be enough to rid himself of Jack Sparrows shell?

  • mary

    The greatest movie actor of our age starring in the greatest role musical theater ever produced. Genius meets super genius, let’s hope Johnny pays Sondheim the homage he is due, Sweeney Todd is a masterpiece!

  • Sam S

    Saw the original cast on Broadway, later in Philly with Angela Lansbury – music is odd and superb and beautiful and I think Depp is the guy to pull it off. The character is wonderful, evil, funny and sad. Let’s hope Disney doesn’t Disnefy this truly adult story.

  • gee

    cant wait for this movie! johnny depp chooses such creative projects and hopefully this is just as out there. he’s such a wonderfully querky
    actor and i lovee him.

  • Britt

    Johnny depp is one of the most amazing actors of our time. Not to mention very handsome. I don’t think the title cute or sexy fits him anymore, rather the title handsome. I think it is very rude to bash someone who when given a character takes said character to new levels making his role far better than it originally was meant to be. I don’t think people are appreciating his complete commitment to every movie he is part of. I would like to see people try to do what he does. Much more better, I would like people to try to achieve his level of success on their own, the way he has accomplished every single aspect of his life. If you succeed, I will gladly step down from my position of Johnny’s defense. Though, I won’t be holding my breath.
