Due to recent developments, the 47-year-old actor may head over to the land of Oz for one of his next projects.

    What a coincidence when watching the Golden Globes the other night, I actually thought to myself that both Johnny and RDJ likely go for many of the same quirky roles, both are in same age group, both like odd roles, both working on franchise movies. I think they likely compete for roles with each other. Johnny is a great actor yet so shy, RDJ has great acting chops too, but has the charm in spades.

    He’s a drug addict, he doesn’t wash and he thinks he’s great. God he is so boring !

    I love my Johnny. He’s a major star, but he could do so much better if he’d would stop trying to be Keith Richards’ son. He just might still be into drugs. His wife was a pretty young thing once, but her teeth are also corroded and she sometimes looks like a witch. Clean it up, Johnny. Do it for those sweet babies. You’re not homeless!

  • brenda

    @dang..WELL SAID!! I think the same..he needs new friendships…new people in his life! and@ Daniela ..don’t be so silly,and @layla..I think the only one with bloated face here it’s you moron..get a life!

  • Jokergurl

    Replacing one great HOT actor with another great HOT actor, I have no problem with that.

  • sheila

    I agree with you Dang!
    he was a better actor years ago! he’d would stop to be K. Richards and Jack Sparrow every time and every role! he’s starting to bored…
    and me too I think his face is bloated (a bit puffy cheek) ! he’s been a incredibly long time youthness (and really beauty) but now he’s starting to age not very well to me!

  • goher
