Johnny Depp: actor, father and ... Comanche Indian? As of last week, yes, and it's all thanks to his role as Tonto in 'The Lone Ranger.'
Tonto is a part of the New Mexico-based Comanche Indians, and after the real-life group heard about Depp's dedication to the role, it extended an invitation for him to join their tribe.
With Edgar Wright about to shoot 'The World's End' (the final film in the Cornetto trilogy) this fall, his involvement with the scripting process for the Johnny Depp film 'The Night Stalker' was questionable. Enter Screenwriter D.V. DeVincentis, who is best known for writing the John Cusack movies 'Gross Pointe Blank' and 'High Fidelity.'
I love watching Johnny Depp make silly faces. Heck, I can watch that all day!
That's something I used to think. Now I know that I can watch it for. . .about forty minutes. For an hour and fifty-three, which is the running time of Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows,' I start to get real uncomfortable.
Tim Burton's 'Dark Shadows' was slow on its roll out to theaters - it didn't have a trailer until a couple of weeks ago and for a summer release it's been curiously mute until recently. You'd think a Tim Burton/ Johnny Depp film would be hyped more after their 'Alice in Wonderland.' But now we have a featurette for the movie, which talks about vampire lore and a little bit about the original show.
Johnny Depp's upcoming film 'Dark Shadows' is based on the campy soap opera of the same name that ran from the late 1960s through the early 1970s. The actor is an avowed fan of the series, so the recent death of its star, Jonathan Frid, just weeks before the movie's opening hit Depp especially hard.
