Johnny Depp Steps Out After J.K. Rowling Defends 'Fantastic Beasts' Casting

Johnny Depp hits the red carpet after J.K. Rowling fiercely defended his Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them casting following his abuse allegations.

The 53-year-old actor was all smiles as he posed next to Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry at the Classic Rock Awards 2016 held at the Ryougoku Kokugikan Stadium on Friday (November 11) in Tokyo, Japan.

Other rock icons in attendance were Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen, Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine, Cheap Trick, Richie Sambora, and Orianthi.

Johnny will star as Grindelwald in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but the casting decision has caused some controversy because of his alleged domestic violence incidents.

Director David Yates has already spoken out to defend the casting, and now Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has done the same.

At the film’s world premiere on Thursday, she revealed that Johnny has “done incredible things” with the portrayal of the dark wizard and that she is “delighted” with the casting choice.

“He’s obviously a cameo in this film but going forward will obviously be more important,” she told People. “Watching Johnny create a character is really quite remarkable, it’s fascinating. It’s great as a writer to work with people like that.”

Johnny Depp's 'Fantastic Beasts' Casting Defended by Director

Johnny Depp is set to star in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but his casting has drawn some criticism due to his alleged domestic violence incidents.

David Yates, the director of the first movie, has opened up to defend the casting decision.

“The whole principal of casting the movie was go for the best actor; go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. As we started to approach Grindelwald, we thought, ‘Who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ In this business — it’s a weird old business — you’re a star one week, people are saying odd things the next, but no one takes away your pure talent,” David told Screen Rant.

Johnny Depp is a real artist and he’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor and we were excited about seeing what he would do with this kind of character. He’s fearless, he’s imaginative, he’s ambitious. We thought he’d do something fun and special. So we went for him purely on that selfish basis, we don’t care if he’s famous or not famous, we just know he’s interesting,” he added.

Johnny was cast in the movie well before his split from Amber Heard as his scenes for the first movie were filmed in January.
