Johnny On ‘West Of Memphis’: ‘It Could Have Been Any Of Us’
In 1993, the lives of three young teenagers — Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin — were changed forever when they were convicted of a crime they didn’t commit: the brutal murder of three boys in West Memphis, Arkansas. Almost 20 years behind bars and countless voices of support later, the West Memphis Three are free at last, with their story chronicled in the Peter Jackson-produced documentary “West of Memphis.”
Over the years, Echols and his peers found their cause championed by famous faces including Eddie Vedder, Henry Rollins and Johnny Depp. At the Toronto International Film Festival, Johnny appeared alongside Echols and spoke with MTV News about why the case of the West Memphis Three was something he found himself drawn to.
“I believe it was Henry Rollins, also a longtime supporter and friend of Damien’s, who said it, and it’s absolutely true: it could have been any of us,” Johnny said of the circumstances surrounding the West Memphis Three’s wrongful imprisonment. “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.”
With Echols, Misskelley and Baldwin finally out of prison, the men, now in their 30s, have a lot of world to catch up to. “Here’s a kid who went to prison wrongfully convicted. He went in at the age of 18 and came out at the age of 36. Suddenly you can take photographs with your phone. So much has changed,” Depp observed of Echols’ current experience. “By the time you came out, it’s ‘The Jetsons.’ It’s a whole ‘nother world.”
Johnny Depp joined Alice Cooper and his band on stage at a concert in London on Sunday, June 26, for a gig described by one fan as “totally and utterly amazing.”
Wearing a brown vest, a hat and his signature shades, the 48-year-old actor played an electric guitar as Cooper, 63, sang his 1970s hits “School’s Out” and “I’m Eighteen” as well as the 1979 Pink Floyd classic “Another Brick In The Wall” before a cheering crowd at the sold-out concert at the famed 100 Club on Oxford Street.
After the performance, Depp and Cooper hugged. The veteran rocker then said into his microphone: “I think we could use another guitar player, right? Johnny, this whole movie thing … If it doesn’t pan out, join us, okay?”
As if Super Bowl Sunday isn’t awesome enough on its own, now Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow and the crew from Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides are dropping in.

Warner Home Video are releasing Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street on the 19th May 2008 for an RRP of £23.99. Based on the 19th century legend of Sweeney Todd and the hit Broadway musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street (Johnny Depp) returns to London after being sent to prison, unjustly, by Judge Turpin. Sweeney opens a barber shop and vows to get his revenge, not only for that cruel punishment, but for the devastating consequences of what happened to his wife and daughter.
Joining Depp is Helena Bonham Carter as Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney’s amorous accomplice, who sells “the worst pies in London.” With the help of Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney tries to rid of all the people who have ever done him wrong and hopes to be reunited with his daughter, Joanna, who is now Judge Turpin’s ward.

Paramount Home Entertainment has alerted retailers to expect Sweeney Todd to be released April 1 on HD DVD, day-and-date with the standard DVD version. And no, the release date is not an April Fool’s joke.

The film also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Sacha Baron Cohen, Jamie Campbell Bower, Laura Michelle Kelly, Jayne Wisener, Ed Sanders, and Timothy Spall.
Paramount has yet to issue an official announcement so we won’t have any specific disc information until they do. Also, as with any early retailer dates, the release date could change at any time.
Sweeney Todd on HD DVD will carry an SRP of $39.99. Check back regularly for high resolution cover art, disc specs, special features, and pre-order information.
