Johnny Depp Almost Had a Cameo in 'Hugo'

Johnny Depp Almost Had a Cameo in 'Hugo'

Johnny Depp makes his way out of the Iggy and the Stooges concert held at the Hollywood Palladium on Thursday (December 1) in Hollywood.

The 48-year-old actor came close to playing a small role in Martin Scorsese‘s Hugo!

“When I first got the manuscript of the book, I sent it to Johnny….And he read it and loved it, and I said let’s make this together,” said producer Graham King (via CinemaBlend).

“There’s a role that’s not in the movie now that was in the script that he was going to play, a very small role. But we just didn’t have the time to do it with the schedule,” Graham finished.

    Its no surprise folks clammer for Johnny, but were this tidbit to be altogether on the up & up – folks would work around Depp’s schedule! Just a thought…

    I’ve been wanting to see Hugo. But if Johnny was in it I would have to boycott it.
    That man will never again get one dime of my movie money.
    He disgusts me.

    This isn’t a fan site. They have a right to their opinion as much as you do. Johnny has offended a LOT of people with his idiotic statements over the last few months. I won’t ever pay to see a movie of his again, either.

    He reminds me of Marlon Brando. Good looks excellent actor until middle age creeps up, then it’s all down hill.

    Johnny is such a brilliant person, brilliant actor. He’s my hero. And always been.

    And why are some of you complaining about his look. Johnny is 48, and still looking awesome! I bet none of your dad’s are looking this cool and handsome at 48 years old.

    And WTF, you say you “loved” him. Sure… you think you love him, and then he, according to you, get’s “awful” and overweight” and you stop loving him.

    It’s not all about the looks, you idiots.

    He’s always handsome. No matter what you say. He’s always my hero, no matter what you or the papparazzis say.

    I love him.
