Johnny Depp: The Deep Method Actor

I'd rather see him without all the garb.

I saw "Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest" last night. It was a fun movie. Johnny was "okay" as a pirate - a bit more flamboyant that I had imagined. His annunciation was awful. The false teeth probably didn't help. I had trouble understanding what the heck he was saying half the time. Nonetheless, I was entertained.

I like Johnny Depp very much. Particularly him in a Tim Burton movie is usually just great.

However, I didn't really click with the first part of the Pirates, and somehow I didn't even consider to watch the second part yet.

I was watching it in English, and I was hardly able to understand it. Maybe that's the problem. I didn't admit that until now, but if it's hard for a native speaker, I can confess it. :-)

I think he was more effective in the first "Pirates" movie. It's an extreme characterization and once may have been enough.

That said, he's one of my favorite actors (along with Wiliam H. Macy and Harvey Keitel). None of them ever played the "image" game in Hollywood, but picked bizarre, unattractive or troubled characters who were well-written and placed in interesting scripts.

I love William H. Macy. He too is one of my favorites.

Did you see him in Chocolat, along with another of my favorite actors: Juliette Binoche? The film was made in a small village near Toulouse France - beautiful. He's got a smaller role in the movie, but a good role.

I love Chocolat. He was good in that one.
