New photos of Johnny Depp in this week's entertainment magazines–April 7, 2008 issues

The photo at left, from this week’s PEOPLE Magazine, captures Johnny Depp, in costume as John Dillinger, as he is mounting the steps (the many, many steps!) of the Lafayette County Courthouse in Darlington, Wisconsin on March 19, 2008. The U.S. entertainment magazines found a lot to like in the Darlington shoot, as PEOPLE, US, IN TOUCH and LIFE & STYLE all feature photos from Darlington in their April 7, 2008 issues. To see a larger version of the PEOPLE photograph, click here: The photo appears in the Star Tracks section on page 15.

LIFE & STYLE chooses the same photograph as PEOPLE; theirs is on page 13. US Magazine has a quarter-page photo on page 27, a half-length shot of Johnny (not on the steps) waving to the crowd in front of a snowbank in Darlington. There is also a small inset photo of him at the Oscars, to compare his look.

IN TOUCH features a quarter-page photo of Johnny waving in front of his trailer, with an inset publicity photo from 21 JUMP STREET. “Johnny hasn’t aged,” says the caption on page 12. “With a fresh haircut and clean-shaven face, Johnny Depp looks virtually the same as he did in 21 JUMP STREET 20 years ago! Johnny was filming PUBLIC ENEMIES in Wisconsin (he plays 1930s bank robber John Dillinger) on March 19.” You can see scans of all the photos on the Zone’s News & Views forum. –Part-Time Poet
