Starring Johnny Depp in the Title Role

January 20, 2011

Until those Pirates movies, there was something odd about Johnny Depp’s career: he tended to star in films named after his character. Think about it: Edward Scissorhands, Donnie Brasco, Gilbert Grape, Benny and Joon (I don’t know which one he was in that one, because it looked really cakey and I never saw it.), Cry-Baby, Don Juan Demarco, Ed Wood … except for Nick of Time, where his name was not actually Nick (ripoff!. This even goes back to his TV days. I liked it when Jump Street used his karate on the drug dealers.

  1. Looks more like Ralph Macchio channeling Johnny Depp, circa 1987


  2. Benny and Joon is actually very enjoyable. I’d recommend it.
