TV Alert–Johnny Depp on THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW Monday, December 13th!

Deppheads, set your VCRs–Monique reports that Oprah will usher in the awards season on Monday, December 13th by airing a show which features interviews with likely Golden Globes Best Actor nominees. The show will feature Adam Sandler, whose new film SPANGLISH will be released on the following Friday, but it will also include interviews with Jamie Foxx (RAY), Johnny Depp (FINDING NEVERLAND), and Leonardo DiCaprio (THE AVIATOR). The footage of Johnny will no doubt come from the taping that originally aired on November 2, 2004; we don’t know if any of the footage will be new, or if it will simply repeat part of what aired on Election Day.

Oprah’s Best Actor fest is timed to coincide with the announcement of the Golden Globes nominations on Monday morning. The Golden Globes, unlike the Oscars, offer separate awards for drama and for comedy/musical, so there will be ten Best Actor nominees rather than five. Be sure to watch the announcement of the Golden Globes nominations on Monday morning, and keep your fingers crossed for Johnny!


Wait no longer–the teaser trailer for CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY is available for viewing at Yahoo Movies. You can watch it HERE.

You can also watch the trailer tonight, December 9th, on EXTRA and E! News Daily. It will no doubt be turning up soon on other entertainment news programs as well. The Zone thanks Nicole Jacks for posting the trailer on the News & Views forum, and abigail, scratchthedragon, and Kazren for information on TV listings.

And for those who want a REALLY close look at Johnny’s Willy Wonka, evelyne has posted screencaps from the trailer on the News & Views forum–see the “e news caps” thread. A big Zone bouquet of lilies and roses to you, evelyne! Thanks very much for sharing your work with the Zone.
