“The reason to play it is obvious to me,” Johnny recently shared about playing convicted mobster Whitey Bulger in his upcoming film Black Mass, which will start shooting next month. “He’s a fascinating character. I don’t think it’s like anything I’ve done before and I’m very excited to slide into that skin for a little bit.”

    He looks physically good, but i don’t like too much this style of clothes, but i think he’s getting into his mobster character already.
    I just read on his forums that he designed Amber’s ring, but the first one -the one she wears- it’s so ginormous that he thought it was too uncomfortable to her to wear it at casual ocassions, so he got her the other, a subtle version, but it was too loose on her finger so he started to wear it , but he plans to get it fitted to her anyway so she have both to choose

    His acting is awful in Transcendence, he didn’t even try to get rid of his fake accent. Give it up Johnny, other more talented actors need a job too!

    @moocow: Oh shut up you blind idiotic hater.

    He was nominated for the Oscar twice for playing “straight” roles and most of his “straight” performances are critically acclaimed.

    His performance looks amazing in Transcendence and he was amazing in The Tourist, Public Enemies, Sweeney Todd, Finding Neverland, The Libertine, Secret Window, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, From Hell, Chocolat, Blow, The Man Who Cried, Donnie Brasco, The Brave, Gilrbet Grape and on and on and on. Have you even seen these movies you moron??????????

    He is the best thing about everything he’s in.

    I hope you get your face ruined (more than it already is) by someone.

    @Bow: The movie hasn’t even been released, how the hell do you say his acting is awful in it when you haven’t freaking seen it? I bet you haven’t even seen the trailer.

    His acting seems great judging by the trailers, clips and I didn’t notice his “fake” accent at all because he seemed in character. He’s still got his incredible acting ability and talent which many of these so called “actors” lack.

    Give up acting because of a loser, nobody on the internet and forget about all the fans who pay the tickets to see him? Give up acting when he’s still got the sparkle?

    What ‘more’ talented actors are you talking about? Are you seriously asking JOHNNY DEPP to stop acting because other actors need a job? Hahahahaha! If they were more talented than him then why don’t they get the acting jobs they deserve? Or are they talentless nobodies like you?

    Wake up, Johnny Depp is Hollywood royalty and he’ll always get all the roles that he wants.

    @moocow: Yeah just like he gave fantastic performances as John Dillnger, George Jung and Donnie Brasco.

    You go Johnny. F*ck the haters.

    he’ll probably win an Oscar for it.

    @JDF, Boo – the same person, right!
    Do you also get physically abusive towards people who don’t like Depp!

    JDF Says:

    @You are scary, get some help: No that’s not me.

    I only get mad at the pathetic haters who say such nonesense.

    He looks so good. His skin looks good too! Can’t wait to see the interview.

    I saw the trailer of Transcendence at the theatre, and it looked too scientific and boring. After 3 bombs at the box office, Johnny needs a hit.

    Transcend Says:

    Haven’t see the film; only the trailer. The film didn’t look slick enough, which I think you might need if you want to sell hard SF to the general public. See The Matrix etc.

    JDF Says:

    @David From Canada: Many people who are excited to see it would disagree strongly with you. It looks great.

    The Rum Diary and Dark Shadows were not bombs and yeah Transcendence is gonna be a hit and after that he’ll have the sure-to-be-a-hit Into The Woods.

    @JDF:

    WOWO .. and soooooo classy. Consider the source I guess.

    moocow Says:

    @JDF:

    LMFAO! How do you figure Rum Diary and TDS weren’t flops? Rum Diary didn’t even make back it’s production budget by 1/2 with DVD sales thrown in. All it was good for was cover for Johnny cheating on Vanessa.

    And if “The Tourist” had had Angie it would have flopped at the BO too as Depp was execrable and totally no chemistry in his role.

    JDF Says:

    @moocow: I said they weren’t bombs. There’s a difference between flops and bombs.

    Cheating on Vanessa who was with him on the set with the kids? Interesting!

    Johnny was great in The Tourist and he was the only great thing about it. It made money mostly because of him. He just he had a billion dollar movie before it came out and he had another billion dollar movie afterwards!

    Are you not aware of the fact that Angie had more flops than she’s had hits? She never even had a movie that made over $600m.

    Lmao Says:

    Lmao at the people hating on Depp and lmao at the ones defending him, both of you need to get a life, because after all ….the haters who talks bullsh*t about Depp doesn’t even have the half of his money or fame, Johnny is still famous and rich…… same thing about his fans, i don’t know why do they really need to defend him, like he’s gonna give them some of his money for defending him? Lol

    So, Dear Depp’s Hater/Fan

    Get a life…..

    I saw again “Neverland” on the TV, 3 days ago, and I look tomorrow evening at “Alice in Wonderland”. Movies so more nice that “Transcendance” and where Johnny was so delicious. But the most beautiful movie which he gave us was the one to see growing his small family during 14 years ! The most beautiful children in the world that Vanessa gave him for his hapiness ! I am sure that he will regret this time all along his life in spite of the extravagant images which we show us of him with excentric and without soul Heard ! And even if he has other children with Heard, he will have them at the age to be a grandfather. Nothing will be the same anymore ! The hapiness for Johnny was yesterday with Vanessa, Jack et Lily rose (Vajoliroja) ! Amber Heard is only a mid life crisis, an error that he will regret soon !

    @Isa: Hahahahahaha, the kids are living with him and he’s having the best years of his life with them and Amber. He’s happier than he ever was.
