Only a few weeks before Johnny’s 50th birthday, a 505 million-year-old fossil with “scissor hand-like” claws has been named after the Johnny Depp.
Kooteninchela deppi (pronounced Koo-ten-ee-che-la depp-eye) was named by the researcher David Legg after Johnny because of his starring role as Edward Scissorhands.
Mr. Legg can be forgiven – who can evade Johnny’s impact?
“In truth, I am also a bit of a Depp fan and so what better way to honour the man than to immortalise him as an ancient creature that once roamed the sea?”
(wasn’t that Captain Jack Sparrow already?)

Though still a rumour, there is already an audition and casting information for “Into the woods”, being shot in the United Kingdom, read the announcement here for more info.
“Into The Woods” intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales such as from “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Rapunzel,” “Cinderella”, etc., and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The plot tells the story of a baker and his wife who desperately want children and in attempt to lift a family curse, they decide to strike a deal with a Witch who cast the spell on them. She promises to give them a child if they can bring her the cape of Little Red Riding hood, the milky-white cow of Jack (of beanstalk fame), the slipper of Cinderella, and some of Rapunzel’s golden hair. In order to do so, the baker must travel into the dark and mysterious woods and battle a Giant (again of beanstalk fame) who threatens to destroy the entire village.

I was in attendance the other night at an event with Stephen Sondheim and he, at least, confirmed Johnny’s participation in Into the Woods as the wolf. He said rehearsals were to begin this summer with filming to begin this fall in London as mentioned here earlier.
We have yet to see, how this will work with Black Mass also waiting to be filmed.

In my opinion he is the most beautiful man in the world - but he is always working against the stereotype of this beauty, which unfortunately is the only thing he just can't succeed in. Even if you don't think that Johnny looks absolutely amazing, you cannot deny that he is the most talented actor of his generation. No one can represent as many characters as he has and no one is as daring in his choice of movie roles. I guess there is no role that he cannot play!! And he is not only a great actor. Do not forget his great work as the writer and director of the movie The Brave. Or his talent as a musician. Playing the guitar or even composing his own character's score for the soundtrack of the movie Once upon a time in Mexico.
And his most adorable "talent" is his character in real life, his love for his girl Vanessa Paradis, and being a father for his two kids.
I want to add a quote...my favourite one made about Johnny Depp...written by Rudolf John in the Austrian Kurier and I hope, I translated this correct: ...and there is scarcely any other actors face that meets more the conception of romanticism than his. With the melancholic trait around the mouth, the poetic far sighted view, where nevertheless the rogue is flashing through, and the bantering body language.
