With the release of the first cast photo from the next Fantastic Beasts movie, it’s official: Johnny Depp will return as Gellert Grindelwald, the fiend and former love interest-turned-rival to Jude Law’s Albus Dumbledore. What’s more, Johnny’s character has been upgraded to title-worthy villain; W.B. also revealed today that the second film in J.K. Rowling’s second Harry Potter universe series will be subtitled The Crimes of Grindelwald.
Which one is god and which one is the devil? It’s a question you might ponder after watching the totally NSFW video for Marilyn Manson’s single “Say10” One sits on a white throne, his face and hair painted a ghostly white, with streaks of black paint across his lips, eyes and cheeks, a cigarette dangling form his crooked grin. The other strides a black throne, his gangly limbs covered with black leather, face also painted in black and white. Both, of course, are surrounded by nearly naked woman crawling all over their perches.
Just another night out with Manson and his best pal, Johnny Depp? Pretty much. The shock rocker has roped his good friend Johnny into his dark shenanigans in the Bill Yukich-directed clip that Manson describes this way in a statement:
“After the balloons have all shriveled up and are swallowed in the puddles of puke and idealism, don’t look to Me for sympathy. I am here to be all that I am accused of not being. And to be blamed for what you made Me. The shots you will hear are from a mouth disguised as a gun. Don’t call this art. This is a hard cock in a room full of vampires and the music, man. The music is My foul blood on your faces.”
“The studios sell a product and I became their product.” Exclusive interview with Johnny Depp for Numéro Homme
He’s one of the few great actors to have written their own destiny. Since becoming a household name at the age of 24, Johnny Depp has skilfully navigated the pitfalls of celebrity by forging his own path in ambitious auteur movies by the likes of Tim Burton and Jim Jarmusch. Numéro Homme sits down with the Hollywood icon – and face of Dior’s Sauvage fragrance – for an exclusive interview.
Numéro Homme: Which directors have had the biggest impact on you?
Johnny Depp: Tim Burton. When I met Tim I had just done Cry-Baby with John Waters. Before John I was on that TV show [21 Jump Street] and I was basically whatever they wanted to sell me as. The studios sell a product and I became their product. They dictated to people what I was and who I was. It wasn’t about me, it was about this image that had nothing to do with me, so I knew I was not on my road.
Pirates of the Caribbean 6 isn’t dead in the water just yet, according to producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
The future of Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is in doubt after the fifth movie Salazar’s Revenge, AKA Dead Men Tell No Tales, relatively underperformed at the box office with a global haul to date of $792 million.
That marks the lowest bounty of the series since the first movie, but Bruckheimer doesn’t think of it as a failure.
“I think it did phenomenal,” he told Yahoo Movies. “I mean, you’re talking about the fifth [film] in the series in a down market, and the American dollar is so strong that we’re getting less returns from foreign [markets].
He’s done it again – Captain Jack Sparrow took time from his pirate duties to visit patients at a children’s hospital in Vancouver, Canada.
Johnny, in his role as Jack Sparrow from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie franchise, surprised patients at BC Children’s Hospital on Monday (August 14). According to the hospital’s Facebook page, Johnny spent over five hours meeting face-to-face with patients in the oncology, general pediatrics and neurology wards.
“Meeting Captain Jack was a dream come true for my daughter,” said Sarah Kertcher, mother of 7-year-old Madison, a patient at the hospital. “He never broke character once and was so generous with his time. He was truly here for the kids and it brought tears to my eyes to see how special he made each one feel.”
Johnny’s visit to the Vancouver hospital was not his first time making a unexpected appearance to fans — in 2015, he, dressed as Sparrow, surprised patients at a children’s hospital in Australia.
The fifth and most recent “Pirates of the Caribbean” film was released in May.
On Tuesday, July 25, Johnny had to get into a lake fully clothed for his latest film in Vancouver, Canada. On that same day, he also visited supporters and admirers downton.
His hair was styled in a curly fashion not worn by the actor in his day-to-day life. The look would soon be ruined by the water as he swam with a swan for the unusual scene. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Johnny will play ‘a world-weary college professor who is given a life-changing diagnosis.’
The diagnosis causes his character to live a life without limits which encourages a wild streak within him. That description certainly adds more context to the scene Johnny was shooting in the lake on Tuesday.
I added 17 tagged LQ images to the photo gallery. Enjoy!
Johnny has arrived in Vancouver and — much to the delight of his admirers — he’s been out and about on the town. Of course, he is there to film his latest movie project Richard Says Goodbye.
To the surprise of Vancouverites, Johnny, sporting disheveled hair, turned up outside the Blackbird Public House on Dunsmuir Street in the downtown business district on July 25. Ever a good sport, he was willing to pose for snaps and chats — and even the occasional kiss.
Fan videos and photos soon lit up social media.

Danny Huston, Rosemarie DeWitt, Devon Terrell and Odessa Young have joined Johnny Depp’s comedy-drama “Richard Says Goodbye” with principal photography started on location in Vancouver.
Variety reported on July 20 that “Before I Fall” star Zoey Deutch had been set to co-star with Depp. Wayne Roberts is directing from his own script.
The film follows the story of a world weary college professor — portrayed by Johnn< — who is given a life-changing diagnosis and decides to throw all pretense and conventions to the wind and live his life as boldly and freely as possible with a biting sense of humor, a reckless streak and a touch of madness.
Platoon co-stars Johnny Depp, Charlie Sheen and Kevin Dillon reunited on Sunday in honor of the iconic war film’s 30th anniversary.
The 1987 film, which also starred Willem Dafoe, Forest Whitaker and Tom Berenger, won four Oscars, including Best Picture.
The picture was posted on Kevin Dillon’s official Instagram account and he wrote:
#platoon 30 year #reunion last night at #johnnydepp house #goodtimes @charliesheen
The film was one of Johnny’s first roles, and put Sheen, 51, in the role of a leading man following his memorable cameo performance in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off the year before.
In the 30 years since the film was made, all of the co-stars have gone on to lead very full lives. Depp recently opened up to ET about his teenage daughter, Lily Rose Depp.
Johnny Depp Passed on Face/Off Because He Was Disappointed to Learn It Was Not a Movie About Hockey
First off all, for those who do not know the movie, Face/Off was released in 1997 and stars John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. In order to foil an extortion plot, an FBI agent undergoes a facial transplant surgery and assumes the identity and physical appearance of a terrorist, but the plan turns from bad to worse when the same terrorist impersonates the FBI agent.
Before Paramount had a hit on its hands, Marco Brambilla (Demolition Man) was attached to direct and Johnny Depp was eyed to star. Brambilla, according to Shortlist’s oral history, wanted a younger cast, and Paramount was trying to turn Depp into a movie star. Eventually, Johnny dropped out because he — rather inexplicably — thought Face/Off was a movie about hockey.
