Johnny Depp Is ‘F—ing Beautiful’ In ‘Lone Ranger’

Armie Hammer tells MTV News that Depp ‘knows what he does well, and he does it well for sure.’

He’s joined in the film by Verbinski’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” co-conspirator Johnny Depp, in a performance that Hammer can only describe as “f—ing beautiful,” if you’ll pardon his French.

Lucinda Williams talks Johnny Depp, capital punishment and the West Memphis Three

Lucinda Williams is one of those Americana icons in the tradition of Johnny Cash, a singer-songwriter who fights for social justice and the disenfranchised. She’s spent years working with Amnesty International, and dedicated hundreds of hours to prevent convicted killer David Lee Powell’s execution in 2010. Her efforts failed, but it reaffirmed Williams’s fight against the death penalty and for fairer prison conditions.

So Williams was something of a natural fit when producers of the new documentary on the West Memphis Three, West of Memphis, sought contributions for the soundtrack, West of Memphis: Voices for Justice (streaming now on CBC Music). Williams told CBC Music how Johnny Depp brought her into the project, about capital punishment and the complicated case that continues to captivate.

Review: House of Earth, By Woody Guthrie

It is rare that the introduction is as interesting as the book it seeks to preface. But in the case of House of Earth, the foreword, written by Douglas Brinkley and Johnny Depp, is a meal in itself.

House of Earth is a previously unpublished novel by the folk singer Woody Guthrie, who wandered the Dust Bowl states of Oklahoma and Texas at the same time as John Steinbeck, in the 1930s. While Steinbeck took on the Okies, Guthrie went for the Texas Panhandle, the northern tip of the state beset by loose soil, tumbleweed, and a plague of termites.

Quentin Tarantino Says He & Johnny Depp Would Love To Work Together

Tarantino was on Charlie Rose recently and the talk show host asked about how he came to work with DiCaprio and then segued into another question: he was suprised that Tarantino’s never worked with actor Johnny Depp, who like DiCaprio, is one of the biggest name actors in the world. Maybe not so surprisingly, Tarantino said he and Depp have discussed working together in the past and hope to do so some time in the future.

“We would love to work together. We’ve talked about it for years,” Tarantino said of Depp. “Not that we get together and talk about it for years, but from time to time. We’re obviously fans of each other. It just needs to be the right character. I just need to write the right character that I think Johnny would be the right guy to do it with. And if he agrees, then we’ll do it. And then it’ll be magical. I haven’t written the perfect character for Johnny Depp as of yet. Maybe someday I will, maybe someday I won’t. We’ll see.”
