Johnny Depp

Depp, Johnny

Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Depp has made a career of playing some strange characters, including Edward Scissorhands, Ed Wood, Raul Duke and Donnie Brasco; all of which brought him critical acclaim, but little commercial success. Due to an early decision in his career to only play roles that pleased him, Johnny turned down parts in blockbuster films such as Titanic, The Matrix and Speed. Then, in 2003, Johnny agreed to pay the role of the slurring, lecherous Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean, which turned out to be a box office bonanza, generating 653-million dollars worth of treasure and earned him his first Academy Award nomination for the character he said he based his performance on the Rolling Stones' famous guitarist, Keith Richards. 2014 JSCA 30 min.
