And a good guy, too. When he was filming in the UK he would go to Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital in full Jack Sparrow costume and spend the day visiting the sick kids, bringing them presents - and never with any camera crews in tow or anything like that. He also took some of his fellow cast members to a local school assembly to surprise a kid who had written him a fan letter.

Hhhhmmm I don't think playing a variety of affected, "zany" characters in film after film makes a good actor, let alone a great one. Has he ever done a film where he has effectively conveyed nuanced emotion? If he has I haven't seen it.

One of the very few bright spots of his in the last decade.

Oh yeah, I completely agree. Most of his best work is from before the first Pirates flick - nowadays he just seems to go for the needlessly weird characters and performance choices. But he's still an astoundingly good actor - films like Dead Man and Donnie Brasco truly stand up to repeated viewing.

Find Neverland is a wonderful movie

Sweeny Todd was pretty good too for a musical.

I thought Don Juan Demarco was one of his best performances.

Finding Neverland
Donnie Brasco

But my favorite performance of his was easily Ed Wood.

Because it's never happened before. Oh wait, it did when Heaven's Gate killed westerns for the second time.

Cutthroat Island killed pirate movies till Pirates of the Caribbean.

Hello, Dolly! killed musicals for a while.

Cleopatra killed Roman era movies till Gladiator.

But ok, it can't happen.

No, I did not care for it. I'm over the Depp/Burton-thing.

Me too. Depp's loyalty has hurt him lately.
