Johnny Depp is an amazing actor. I have loved him since 21 Jump Street. I believe the first time I saw him was in Friday the 13th but his role was so small that I didn't really get an impression of him (other than that he was gorgeous). :P
Over the years, Mr. Depp had taken on many challenging roles and he's always played them extremely well. He truly becomes the characters he's portraying. I don't think that there is any other actor who is more talented than Johnny Depp. I am repeatedly impressed by Mr. Depp. His movies range from silly to tragic, adventurous to thrilling and everything in between. He, quite simply, excels in every movie he appears in.
Johnny Depp is a Hollywood legend. I think he is truly one of the best actors, if not THE BEST actor, right now. You will never be let down by a Johnny Depp movie.
