Still working on my review of 21 Jump Street which should be up in the next couple of days. In the meantime I leave you with this video of WatchMojo.com‘s Top 10 Johnny Depp Performances.
As far as characters go, I think my favourite is Depp’s Raoul Duke in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas for over the top character with Ed Wood and Jack Sparrow close seconds.
If we’re talking great straight up performances, I think his role in Donnie Brasco as the undercover cop and his relationship with Al Pacino‘s ‘Lefty’ Ruggiero is Oscar worthy more so than his nomination for Pirates of the Caribbean.
Do you have a favourite?
Comment on “Favourite Johnny Depp Character?”
I’m gonna have to go with Edward Scissorhands as my fave performance of his. With maybe his Sam from Benny and Joon, and WIlliam Blake from Dead Man as runners up.
