Happy 49th Birthday, Johnny Depp!


For a man pushing 50, Mr. John Christopher Depp II has got it going on! Here's to one of Hollywood's most talented, versatile, crazy, down to Earth actors. Spanning from 21 Jump Street to Dark Shadows, this chameleon has done it all. He embodies every role he takes - transcending them if you will. He's done a fantastic job of making a career out of playing odd ball, lovable characters. And he does it with such grace and humility too, which is why he is one of the most beloved actors in the business.

He definitely oozes charm and charisma in everything he says and does, and we love him for that. But what's even more impressive is that he has the ability to make us forget we’re even watching a Johnny Depp movie. A true talent. You can definitely see he thoroughly enjoys his craft. (To bask in the world of all things Johnny click here)

He is without doubt one of my all time favorite actors and I look forward to seeing what's in store for him in the future. Thanks Johnny, for bringing us some of the best entertainment and talent Hollywood has to offer. Hats off to you!

Some of my all time favorite Depp movies include: Chocolat, Blow, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Benny & Joon, and the forever classic Edward Scissorhands, just to name a few. The birthday boy is currently filming The Lone Ranger, which will be released some time next year, 2013. It was also just announced that Depp will be reprising his most famous role as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (released date unknown at this time).

What are some of your favorite Depp films?

Almost everything in Hollywood is at least slightly ironic, and decidedly modern or post modern in sensibility. Outright racism or misogyny is now rare in Hollywood. Hollywood is basically far more socially conscious. Bollywood is almost entirely about money, much more so than Hollywood. Often mob money. One highly visible motif is the highly problematic rise of "item numbers."
