Johnny Depp to present BBC radio documentary on James Dean on September 27th!

Johnny Depp will present a documentary on the life of 1950’s film legend James Dean on BBC Radio 2. The program will air on September 27th, 2005–exactly 50 years after Dean’s untimely death in a car crash. Dean’s film career was brief–he had leading roles in only three films, REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE, GIANT, and EAST OF EDEN–but he left an indelible mark on American cinema. Noting that Johnny was frequently compared to James Dean early in his career, the BBC said Johnny would “highlight the artistic passion that drove this country boy from rural Indiana to become a 20th Century icon.” The Zone thanks emma for breaking the story.
