Director Terry Gilliam, now in post-production on THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS, Heath Ledger’s final film, was interviewed recently at the Ischia Film Festival. Gilliam had high praise for Ledger, calling him “a genius.” He also complimented the three actors–Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell–who stepped in to complete Ledger’s role in PARNASSUS after his untimely death last January:

TERRY GILLIAM: The great thing about it is that when Heath died, and we have a character that wasn’t finished in the movie, those three actors [Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell] came along and saved the day. And so the character is now basically four actors creating one character. And that’s . . . it’s very interesting, and maybe even more interesting than it would have been with one actor going all the way through. I’m still not the best judge, because I have in my head what the film was going to be with Heath all the way through, and now there’s a different film there. But all I know is, it’s very funny.

Gilliam sounded proud of his film and genuinely awed by the generosity of the actors who came forward to save the picture and ensure its completion. Despite their high profiles, Depp, Law, and Farrell took no compensation for their work; instead, they donated their salaries to Heath Ledger’s two-year-old daughter, Matilda:

TERRY GILLIAM: The three actors were totally heroic coming in. This doesn’t happen very often . . . where there’s a tragedy like this, and very famous, very successful actors suddenly say, “Okay, we’ll do whatever it takes to help.” They came; they did the work; they allowed the movie to be finished; they didn’t take money–the money goes to Heath’s daughter. That’s extraordinary! And wonderful . . . and when you’re part of that, you think, “Ah, this is maybe why I went into the movies, in the beginning. I thought it would be full of wonderful people. And in our case, we’ve got a movie full of wonderful people, who did extraordinary things to help.

Pamela Anderson’s rock star ex-boyfriend Tommy Lee wants Johnny Depp to play him in a movie.

The Mötley Crüe drummer, 45, is making a film about his life and band — and thinks the Pirates of The Caribbean star would be perfect as the leading man.

He says, “Johnny Depp would be my choice to play me. He’s the best ever.”

But Lee — who recently rekindled his romance with Baywatch babe Pamela — and the rest of Motley Crue are not quite ready to give Depp a call yet.

“We’re working on it,” he adds. “We’re trying to find the right producers and director and all that sort of stuff.”

Johnny Depp didn’t make any Public Enemies at the wrap party for his upcoming flick.

Unlike his pilfering Jack Sparrow, the real-life J.D. was all generosity when it came to showing the Public Enemies cast and crew a good time at Chicago’s Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse. The 45-year-old star hosted a 50-person party and covered each and every head, a source tells OK!.

“Johnny’s a true class act,” a source tells OK!. “He picked up the tab and left a great tip!”

Such magnanimity isn’t new for Johnny. Last month, he kept his word to a 12-year-old fan and sent a fedora he wore in Public Enemies to the young boy when production wrapped. Also in the package? Gifts for the boy’s siblings and a personal note.

UPDATE: An announcement was made today that Johnny Depp would meet with fans at St. Anne High School today. A publicist for the film later said that information was inaccurate, but admitted that Depp does sometimes meet fans after a day of filming.

A Johnny Depp sighting took place outside St. Anne Community High School at about 12:25 p.m. today.

Depp is in town for the filming of “Public Enemies,” a Depression-era gangster film slated for a July 2009 release. Depp plays the role of infamous mobster John Dillinger.

Universal Studios has set up a number of trailers in the back parking lot of the school, and Depp walked out of one and climbed into the back passenger side of a black Ford Expedition. The vehicle pulled out of the parking lot and onto St. Louis Avenue. While it did not stop, Depp rolled down the window and waved to a crowd of about 60, many of whom were shouting his name.

While some members of the crowd expressed disappointment that he didn’t stop, they showed appreciation that he recognized them with a wave.

Depp and the rest of the crew were en route to an abandoned farmhouse east of St. Anne, where a full day of filming is planned.

Thanks to Christopher for the heads up.

In an early alert to retailers, Paramount/DreamWorks has set a late-October bow for the macabre musical ‘Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.’

Bringing together the minds of Tim Burton and Stephen Sondheim, the $50 million-grossing ‘Sweeney Todd’ will make its long-awaited Blu-ray debut on October 21, over six months after the standard DVD release. (DreamWorks had previously announced an HD DVD version for this past April, but nixed the release after the studio dropped support for the format.)

Tech specs for the Blu-ray include 1080p video and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio, along with French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround dubs. Read More

The 12-year-old southside resident received a package in the mail Thursday from Depp’s production company, Infinitum Nihil, containing a variety of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” promotional gifts along with a vintage fedora Depp told Taylor he could have when the “Public Enemies” star was in town in April for filming.

“All I really said was ‘Can I have your hat?’,” Taylor, who will start seventh grade at Grace Lutheran Church this fall, said. “And he said ‘When I’m done with it, it’s yours.’ He was actually pretty cool.” Read More

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.
