Johnny Depp

Wiki info

Depp reprised the role of Jack Sparrow in the Pirates sequels Dead Man's Chest (2006) and At World's End (2007), both of which were major box office successes. [48] He also voiced the character in the video game Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Jack Sparrow. [49] In 2007, Depp also collaborated with Burton for their sixth film together, this time playing murderous barber Sweeney Todd in the musical Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007). Burton had first given him an original cast recording of the 1979 stage musical in 2000, and although not a fan of the musical genre, Depp had grown to like the tale's treatment. He cited Peter Lorre in Mad Love (1935) as his main influence for the role. [50] Although he had performed in musical groups, Depp was initially unsure that he would be able to perform the role, which required him to sing. He recorded demos and worked with Bruce Witkin to shape his vocals without a qualified voice coach. In the DVD Reviews section, Entertainment Weekly's Chris Nashawaty gave the film an A minus, stating, "Depp's soaring voice makes you wonder what other tricks he's been hiding . . . Watching Depp's barber wield his razors . . . it's hard not to be reminded of Edward Scissorhands frantically shaping hedges into animal topiaries 18 years ago . . . and all of the twisted beauty we would've missed out on had [Burton and Depp] never met. "[51] Depp won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for the role, and was nominated for the third time for the Academy Award for Best Actor.

Then again, getting older opens up some interesting roles – look at his late drinking buddy Marlon Brando. And he isn't good at laying back. "I don't know if I can relax," he says. "Relax, I can't do. My brain, on idle, is a bad thing. I just get weird. I mean, not weird. I get, I get antsy." He stubs out his cigarette in an ashtray set on a wooden coffee table with a roulette wheel built into its top.

Actor’s friend, comic Doug Stanhope, says that Heard was “threatening to lie about him publicly in any and every possible duplicitous way if he didn’t agree to her terms”

UPDATE:  The judge has granted Heard's request for a domestic violence restraining order. The temporary restraining order, obtained by E! News, requires Depp to stay 100 yards away from Heard until a hearing next month. The judge also gave Heard the right to live in the family home; however, the judge denied some of Heard's requests, including having Depp stay away from one of her dogs. The judge argued that there was an "insufficient showing of need to protect pet dog".
