I first noticed the handsome Johnny Depp when I saw A Nightmare on Elm Street. Can you believe that movie is over 25 years old? Johnny, of course, became a major movie star after that. He has created such unique, memorable characters like Willy Wonka, Edward Scissorhands, and Captain Jack Sparrow. It seems he can play any type of role and own it. His latest film, The Rum Diary, premiered this month. The movie is based upon the novel of the same name by Hunter S. Thompson. Depp also played the lead in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas which was also based on a Thompson novel.
According to a recent article in the Speakeasy section of the Wall Street Journal, Depp has been reading an eclectic list of books lately.
He is quoted as reading The Psychopath Test by Jon Ronson and re-reading Ulysses by James Joyce. Johnny also mentioned he was reading poetry by Dylan Thomas. Find out more about the movie premiere and what else Johnny is reading in the Speakeasy article here.
