Captain Jack Sparrow isn’t the only daring adventurer in Johnny Depp’s repertoire, as the actor plans on bringing his own unique spin to the historical Mexican revolutionary hero Pancho Villa.

According to Variety, Depp will star as Villa in an upcoming biopic titled “Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman with Six Fingers,” which is easily one of the longest, most terrific titles I’ve heard for a prominent film in the past couple of years.

Depp will share the screen with Salma Hayek, who is in “advanced talks” to star in “Pancho Villa,” most likely as the titular woman with six fingers. Does that mean she only has six fingers total, or six fingers on one hand ala “The Princess Bride”? All six fingers are crossed for the latter.

The film comes courtesy of Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica and screenwriter Gordan Mihic, based on the novel “The Friends of Pancho Villa” written by James Carlos Blake. Blake’s book focuses on Villa as not only an excellent and accomplished soldier, but also as a big fan of “dancing, partying and making love.”

If you’re wondering about how “The Friends of Pancho Villa” might affect Depp’s upcoming work on the next “Pirates of the Caribbean” film, don’t worry too much. According to Variety, the film isn’t expected to begin production until 2011 due to Depp’s prior commitments.

Johnny Depp sizzles on the cover of EW’s Best of the Decade issue, on newsstands December 7 (Monday).

The 46-year-old actor was chosen by EW as one of the mag’s fifteen favorite entertainers of the decade! Also on the list are Tina Fey, Beyonce and Jon Stewart.

When the decade began, Johnny Depp wasn’t the Johnny Depp of today—one of Entertainment Weekly’s 15 Entertainers of the Decade.

Yes, he was a talented and critically acclaimed actor. But he wasn’t yet a surefire box-office draw. Then, in 2003, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl happened. Capt. Jack Sparrow was one of those without-a-net performances, so singular and subversive that it’s hard to believe Depp got away with it. An added bonus was that the actor, now 46, was able to sink his soul into a blockbuster character without selling it. And no one was more baffled by his and the movie’s success — the first of the three Pirates films eventually raked in $305 million — than Depp himself. Read More

Three-time Academy Award nominee Johnny Depp will collect the Bahamas International Film Festival’s career achievement award later this month.

Festival patron and fellow Bahamian resident Sean Connery will present the award during the event, which runs from December 10-17.

“We are proud of all [Depp’s] remarkable achievements and the great contributions he has made in all walks of life,” Bahamas Minister Of Tourism, Minister Vincent Vanderpool Wallace, said. “We are glad this prestigious award and tribute is going to almost one of our own.”

Robert Pattinson who?
This week I’m sure we all received a People cover with the Twiligh vampire being nominated the “2009 sexiest man alive”. Total fake. People announced today what we all knew already:

johnny-depp

Break out the Bordeaux, the whoopee cushions and the bangin’ Keith Richards guitar solos, because the 2009 Sexiest Man Alive party is officially under way. Bringing the fun with him wherever he goes – whether it’s onscreen in fizzy roles like Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise or at home with his family on their private Bahamian island – is just one reason why Johnny Depp, who also scored the honor in 2003, has joined an elite club of two-time SMA title holders (only Brad Pitt and George Clooney have matched the feat). At 46, the father of two still reigns as Hollywood’s most irresistible iconoclast; as one-of-a-kind as his beloved 15-year-old boots and as smoldering as his favorite Cuban cigars.

Scans will be added soon. :)

Johnny Depp presented guitar icon Keith Richards with the “Rock Immortal” award at the Scream 2009 Awards ceremony Saturday in Los Angeles.

The actor, who based his famous “Pirates of the Caribbean” character Jack Sparrow on the Rolling Stones legend, made a special appearance at the Spike TV awards show to present the award, according to the Associated Press. After Richards received the stake-shaped trophy, he said. “I liked the living legend, that was all right, but immortal is even better.”

He also received the award for ‘most antecipated sci-fi’ for Alice in Wonderland.

With the feeling that I’m always late in add pictures to the gallery, I’ve added 224 pictures for Scream Awards, including MQ and HQ. Enjoy!

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
