Starring Johnny Depp in the Title RoleJanuary 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.
