I hope from now on, Johnny Depp will play more straight, normal, “cool” characters from now on and do more dramas.

Aww he looks just like his brother James. He was in Zac efron’s movie Charlie st cloud.

I liked the tv show, but Jonah Hill having a part in writing it makes me leery. I can’t help but think he is going to ruin it by putting like a million sexual innuendo jokes or pot jokes in it.

Wow – I guess it’s going to be a really short villian?

@ # 1 and # 3: There is no such concept as “normal” or “cool.” YOU, biatchs are too simple minded and full of Sh!t to appreciate the performance of Depp in The Libertine and Sweeney Todd.
