Johnny Depp: 'Barnabas Is a Good One'

Johnny Depp: 'Barnabas Is a Good One'

Check out some more pics of Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins in the upcoming film Dark Shadows.

“There’s an elegance to this guy that’s kind of fun; Barnabas is a good one,” the 48-year-old actor told the Chicago Tribune about his vampire character. “And just look around – there’s nothing like working with [director] Tim [Burton].”

The film, out May 11, co-stars Eva Green, Helena Bonham Carter, Jonny Lee Miller, Chloe Moretz, Jackie Earle Haley, Bella Heathcote, and Gulliver McGrath.

“[Johnny] was using those long fingers in one scene where he has to hypnotize me. So I’m watching them and his eyes and listening to his voice and it kind of started to work a little bit. I was like, ‘Wow, this guy could be the real thing,’” Jackie shared.

    I’ll wait for the haters to get started on here but say what you want about Johnny, he always takes a risk, it’d be so easy for him to do the whole straight-laced leading man thing like George and Brad, but he chooses to push boundaries. This generations greatest actor by a mile.

    I absolutely love Tim Burton! He’s a genius, and everything he does is incredible and great! All his movies – no exceptions – are fabulous! And Johnny Deep is unique. What a great team!
