Re: THE PROFESSOR (Richard Says Goodbye) Updates

I think it's more of a pond or lake, as opposed to a stream or river. Hopefully the water was warmish.... Do you think there was a swan wrangler, or did they just improvise with a pond where there already was a swan? It's funny, Johnny's hair and beard make him look like some hunky soap opera star w...

Re: CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

Almost immediately after I posted, I began thinking of roles where his character was not particularly extreme, mostly pre-FALILV, but there have been a few, Gilbert Grape, Deadman, and The Brave certainly stand out. I was forgetting about The Tourist, nothing too flashy about that guy until his true...

Re: CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

https://youtu.be/sVq9FwAhe-w You tube audio conversation. Said could be Johnnys finest performance Kind of ballsy of Sullivan to tell Johnny face to face that he didn't know if Johnny could underplay the part enough. I guess I could understand his concern if there's nothing about Poole that immedia...

Re: THE PROFESSOR (Richard Says Goodbye) Updates

Johnny's signed on for so many different projects, I've lost track of any sense of what order he might be doing them in. Is this next, or "King of the Jungle", "Invisible Man", or something else I'm forgetting...? Anyway, this sounds like a fun one. It will be interesting to see the before and after...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

Who knows how long this could go on, but the above sounds very positive in Johnny's direction. Glad he's fighting these bastards tooth and nail, sure sounds like they've got things to hide.

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

The thing that really gets it is not only is TMG apparently ready to stoop to the lowest levels, but the way their statements are worded in their latest bile, trying to make Johnny sound like this pathetic worthless person that they are superior to! What a joke! And by the way, there is absolutely n...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

From Deadline Hollywood article posted by Lbock: Depp has engaged in a clear pattern and practice of habitually lying to the public and to public authorities, and of requiring others (including long-term employees, family and so-called friends) to lie on his behalf. This practice has become Depp’s m...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

“It’s my money,” Mr. Depp told The Wall Street Journal. “If I want to buy 15,000 cotton balls a day, it’s my thing.” :biglaugh: that cottonball comment, and the comment that the cannon cost $5 million, not $3 million....that's just typical, awesome Johnny. Completely agree! Good for him. It's been ...

30th anniversary of Withnail and I

I've heard Johnny mention this movie on many occasions. Several times during The Rum Diary junket especially, because Withnail is the reason why Johnny and Hunter wanted Bruce Robinson to write and direct TRD. During The Lone Ranger junket, an airhead journalist asked him what his favorite westerns ...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

"The Depp Conundrum" article mentions that Johnny's earned 650 million over the years as an actor, and we can probably assume the vast majority of that came from 2003 on. TMG claims that Johnny's been averaging 2 million per month in expenses. Even if he's been spending at that rate since joining TM...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

Maybe Tracey wanted Johnny to do some of those things you mentioned. Either way, I feel confident that Johnny has a certain level of personal integrity that he will continue to maintain regardless. I don't expect him to come out with some gossipy book or start appearing on D celebrity reality shows ...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

As far as movie choices in regards to this situation, perhaps his decision to get involved in the Fantastic Beasts movies was partially motivated by said situation. Who knows where or if Tracey Jacobs, for example, fits into this puzzle. She did talk him into doing the very pivotal Edward Scissorhan...

Re: CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

As the journalist, Whitaker is likely to have the most interaction with Johnny's character. A solid choice, these guys should make a good pair. Whitaker also worked with Jim Jarmusch once, a movie called "Ghost Dog", which incidentally is the only other Jarmusch movie to feature an appearance by the...
