The comedy, called Torched, is about a “fast-talking, fun-loving dad, who through his very unique — and sometimes law-breaking — job, strives to give his young son the life he never had.”

Chris and Phil previously teamed up with Johnny for 21 Jump Street.

Johnny is currently in town to film Into the Woods.

    Notice how... Says:

    Johnny Depp has cleaned up his “act” considerably since dumping his haggard-looking “old lady” and dating an attractive younger woman. He looked like homeless man while he was settled down with Vanessa, and that’s because Vanessa (who previously looked great when he met her) forgot herself and followed Johnny into his crazy druggie-image lifestyle. I’m not surprised Johnny grew tired of Vanessa and instead fell for a well-groomed, beautiful woman. When women “step up” their game, their men will most certainly follow them, because men know that other men will want to take their place. Men are fiercely afraid of another man luring their woman away from them. IMO, a woman should never get to the point where she loses herself… especially for a guy.

    @ohlala: do you have a major problem in your eyes or something? because Johnny looks half his age and he is so fit and in a good shape.

    JDF Says:

    @Notice how…: give him a break, he and Vanessa grew apart and broke up just like any other normal couple. he didn’t dump here or anything like that, he just moved on with his life and started dating someone else and so did she.

    @JDF: Exactly.Finally someone who doesn’t believe the tabloids!

    @JDF: lol you seriulsy think he looks 25??? you must be a delusional blind fangirl.
    sure he looks good for his age but he has aged a lot since the mid 2000s where he really looked like he is in his mid-late 30s in some of the photoshoots. now he looks like a 45-48 year old who looks youngish just because of his laid back style, he is no more the 30-looking 40 something.

    Amber is feeding bad to Johnny.

    He is always handsome with a big butt

    well, Says:

    @JDF: Vanessa was very attractive in the beginning. Johnny really fell for her. But, over the years, she let herself go to the point where I could barely recognize her. Johnny really did look like a bum until he started anew with his young lady. If he had stayed with Vanessa, he’d still be looking like a bum, so good for him. There is no reason people with fame should rush their demise. The end comes soon enough. Take advantage of what you have while you have it.

    JDF Says:

    @jelena: well, you really didn’t have to take that literally, he looks 40 to me and sometimes could pass for mid to late 30s. he looks amazing for his age and really really astonishing for someone who drinks and smokes a lot.

    JDF Says:

    @ohlala: Ok, you are an obvious troll.

    @well,: Well, Vanessa did age, but I wouldn’t say she looks terrible. No one knows what happened btw them so I guess it’s not fair to judge. I went through a phase of judging Johnny for leaving Vanessa for a younger woman, but I came to the realization that I don’t know what really happened btw them, maybe they just weren’t compatible for whatever reason…these things happen. I’m back to loving Johnny again lol

    KR Says:

    @JDF: Oh but you are forgetting dear JDF that he stopped drinking alcohol and that has to be a huge part on how well he looks now. Also his happiness. It seems to me that his young lady has helped him to clean up his acts and makes him look healthier and happy again. Well done lucky lady! (you all know who I’m talking about)

    Landy Says:

    Why does everybody makes such a big deal about him? I never did get the appeal. He always looks dirty & smelly to me – & a need of a decent hair cut.

    Sally Says:

    People should see how Vanessa looked in the Chanel event from yesterday. She looks gorgeous! So, I guess by YOUR logic that must have been Johnny’s fault!

  23. 23
    Sally Says:

    I meant that “her looking bad” must have been Johnny’s fault, by your logic.

  24. 24
    JDF Says:

    @Landy: because he us a big deal! just because you don’t like him it doesn’t mean the whole world feels the same ok? he is one of the sexiest and best looking men in the history and just because he is dressing like that it doesn’t mean he is dirty or smelly because if you looked close enough, he is clean-shaven and has a clean-freash skin and all the people who met said that he smells soo good.
