Showing solidarity for a man he believes was wrongly convicted, Johnny Depp attended “Damien Echols In Conversation, With Johnny Depp” at Barnes & Noble Union Square in New York City on Friday (September 21).
Looking a bit like a hipster cowboy, the “Dark Shadows” star donned a brown leather jacket; black, red, and gray scarf; gray trousers; and a black cowboy hat with a beaded band. The 49-year-old actor supported Echols, one of the famous West Memphis Three, who was promoting a book detailing his life after being released from death row.
That same day, a crew member on Johnny’s new film, “The Lone Ranger,” tragically drowned while preparing a water tank for an upcoming scene. Law enforcement told TMZ that the worker was pulled from the tank only after another on the film crew noticed there weren’t any bubbles surfacing from the diver’s gear.

Johnny Depp goes shirtless as he shoots some scenes dressed in costume as Tonto for his upcoming film “The Lone Ranger” on Wednesday (September 19) in Arcadia, Calif.
The 49-year-old actor recently spoke at TIFF about what drew him to the documentary West of Memphis to MTV News.
“I believe it was Henry Rollins, also a longtime supporter and friend of Damien’s [Echols], who said it, and it’s absolutely true: it could have been any of us,” Johnny said. “Because, what, you look different? [The authorities] put their eyeball on Damien and didn’t take it off, even though everything around them — they didn’t look at the insane amount of holes in the case. They just looked at the guy with the black T-shirt and the long black hair. It was a witch hunt.”
“The Lone Ranger” will be released on July 3rd in 2013! Keep visiting for more updates on Johnny’s upcoming movie project.

One of several in a series of posters promoting the Tim Burton Expo at La Cinematheque Francaise features Johnny Depp as Barnabas in the “Dark Shadows” movie. The official expo description:
The Tim Burton event at La Cinémathèque française is not only a wonderful opportunity to see all of his films (including very limited-distribution short films) but also, thanks to the major exhibition designed by the New York MoMA in 2009 and shown here this spring, an opportunity to discover Burton’s talents as a draftsman, painter, video director, photographer and inventor of colorful, amazing sculptures.

Thanks once again to Elmira we have some nice scans of Johnny updated in our gallery. There is a 4-page feature oh him and Vanessa in Vanity Fair Italy and some various clippings of magazines in 2011 and 2012, enjoy:
I’ve been a terrible webmaster lately and I’m really sorry. I just wasn’t feel like working on the site. Although Johnny is my all-time favorite actor I sometimes don’t feel motivated enough to update the site. Well luckily Johnny wasn’t too busy while I wasn’t around so it was easy to catch up with the latest photos for the gallery.
The only public appearance during this time was in 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards where Johnny presenting Hugo. Other than that there were some new stills of “Dark Shadows”. Along with these I uploaded an old photoshoot of Johnny back in 1998 and decided to work a bit on the photoshoots section of our gallery. The previous webmisses Annie and Luciana did an amazing job collection and uploading photoshoots of Johnny but I think it would be better to organize them by date so I’ll slowly work on it along with the other updates.
For now enjoy the new pics in our gallery (credit our partner depplovers for some photos of Johnny at Golden Globe Awards):
