Johnny Depp is modern Hollywood’s most versatile and most enigmatic star. His choice of roles is often quirky, frequently unexpected. Admired by other actors of all generations, Depp frequently chooses roles in movies that appeal to a sophisticated mainstream movie audience, while at the same time never losing touch with fans of genre and cult material. As his role in Pirates of The Caribbean demonstrates, Depp can be all things to all people.
In this exciting screen biography, now fully updated for its fifth edition, internationally acclaimed film critic Denis Meikle explores Johnny Depp’s career from his breakthrough roles in Edward Scissorhands, Benny & Joon and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape right up to Depp’ s most recent films, including Public Enemies and The Tourist.
Meikle explores the effects that Depp’s critical and commercial stature have had on the direction of his career, and has updated the book to include a foretaste of the forthcoming movies, Rango, The Rum Diary and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
