Johnny Depp. What a dreamboat eh? The girls love him... the boys think he's cool... and love him as well. Everyone likes Johnny Depp on some level. And now, he's going to become the fetish of the nerds as it is rumoured that he could well be appearing in a movie version of Doctor Who.
According to website Tor, an article appeared on PubArticles which allegedly quoted former showrunner Russell T. Davies.
Davies reportedly said that he was in the process of developing a Doctor Who movie and promised that the Daleks would be involved. However, the article was later removed.
Tor has now claimed that sources in the film industry have confirmed that Depp will star in a Doctor Who film, which would be released in 2012.
It is unclear how genuine the reports are as Davies has previously said that he has no plans to make a Doctor Who movie.

Johnny Depp has apparently gobsmacked a waiter in Chicago after leaving a $4,000 tip following a late-night dinner. The Hollywood star had been dining at Gibsons steakhouse with friends, including co-star Marion Cotillard and director Michael Mann, following the movie's premiere. Speaking to RadarOnline, waiter Mohammed Sekhani said: "He may be one of the most famous actors in the world but he is a very humble guy and a really cool dude. Obviously, I was delighted with his tip but he has always been very generous every time that he has visited us here at Gibsons."
Sekhani went on to say that Depp, who arrived at the restaurant at around 11.30pm, had ordered "some $500 bottles of Italian wine" and a range of appetizers for his guests before leaving at 2.30am. "He is a very soft spoken guy who is very charming and sweet - when I wait for him he doesn’t like to be too fussed over and is not in any way demanding."

The actor - who won fans worldwide with his performance as the drunk, bearded pirate in the Disney film franchise - will reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook confirmed yesterday (24.09.08).
However, Johnny is unlikely to be joined by his former co-star Keira Knightley - who played Elizabeth Swann in the first three films.
When recently asked if she would ever consider doing another 'Pirates of the Caribbean film', Keira said: "I think it was wonderful and an amazing opportunity and those films were just extraordinary and I was extremely lucky to be a part of them. But no. I think my pirating days may be over."
Speaking at a Disney press conference at Los Angeles' Kodak Theater, Cook also revealed Johnny will star as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's big screen adaptation of Lewis Carroll's children's novel 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and in an adaptation of US TV show 'The Lone Ranger'.
Johnny - who took to the stage dressed as Jack Sparrow wearing a Lone Ranger mask - will play the masked hero's Native American sidekick Tonto in the movie, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

The actor was linked to the role of The Riddler earlier this year and now one of the superhero franchise's stars Sir Michael Caine has confirmed both Johnny and Philip Seymour Hoffman will appear.
Michael - who played Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred Pennyworth in 'Batman Begins' and 'The Dark Knight' - told MTV: "I was with a Warner Bros. executive and I said, 'Are we going to make another one?' They said, 'Yeah'. I said, 'How the hell are we going to top Heath Ledger as The Joker? And he says, 'I'll tell you how you top Heath - Johnny Depp as The Riddler and Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Penguin.' I said, 'S**t, they've done it again!' "
Johnny recently described the prospect of playing The Riddler as "fun".
He said: "I heard about that. It seems like it'd be a fun gig for a while, yeah."
Work is expected to begin on the next movie, starring Christian Bale as Batman, some time next year.

I don't know about you but I've been excited for a while about the upcoming Sweeney Todd movie with the delectable Mr Depp as the leading role. I was even more enthused when I learnt Tim Burton, director extraordinaire was involved, and I thought I'd let you read some of the conversation between these two genius's.
Tim Burton: There are partnerships where one person is good at one thing and the other is good at another. That’s true in our case. But we’re very connected in terms of taste.
Johnny Depp: Even when we first met, we connected on all these superabsurd level
TB: Usually, we agree. Early on Sweeney Todd, Johnny said, “There is one thing I cannot do. I can’t take Anthony to the hotel.”
JD: I had written a big question mark on that page of the script.
TB: When I opened my script to the same page, I saw that I’d already crossed it out.
JD: Tim’s had to fight to get me in his movies so many times.
TB: We always have to fight. We have to fight to get them done, we have to fight -- weirdly, Sweeney Todd wasn’t so hard, which it should’ve been. They should have run screaming for the hills with this one. An R-rated bloody musical starring someone they don’t even know if he can sing. I mean, Jesus. There’s a certain amount of trust that goes into backing that. It’s exciting when people do that, you know? Just trusting you with something. I find that to be quite energizing and confidence building. Makes you feel good.
TB: I did some auditioning with other people, and afterward I was completely devastated and exhausted. I felt like I was casting a porno movie. I mean, having people come in to audition and sing was like having them come in and take their clothes off. It felt that exposing. It shocked me.
JD: It’s true. I’ve married Tim’s woman twice now. In Corpse Bride, Helena was the corpse. And then in Sweeney Todd.

The dashing Johhny Depp is at it again, camping it up with a whitened face and a penchant for violence. We've just seen this picture from his movie Sweeney Todd, out in December and thought it was so exciting that we had to share it with you!

-Kate Nash likes Lily Allen, she just doesn't want to be Lily. She says she finds the constant comparisons annoying and that 'it's lazy journalism and also quite sexist that there's not enough room for more than one female singer songwriter from London'. That's us told then. [Music Rooms ]
-Apparently Johnny Depp is planning to marry long term lover and mother of his two children, Vanessa Paradis. They've been together for nine years so it's really about time he made a honest woman out of her. [Dotspotter ]
-Paris Hilton is finally bowing to pressure by her neighbours and leaving her Hollywood Hills mansion. Her 3,000 square foot four bed, four bath mansion is on the market for $4.25 million if you fancy it. [Forbes ]

I love Pirates. They're sexy, swashbuckling, swearing devils of the high seas, with camaraderie, cheering and rum. There is something for everyone - from feisty female leaders to delicious eye candy, and the action never ends. Some have criticized Pirates for being repetitive and overly long, but we're not looking for arthouse flicks, people - what you get is what you expect, two-and-a-bit hours of riotous fun, unfeasible plotlines and strange occurrences. There is tragedy, humour and heroism- and, of course, the divine men. I think my loyalty is now wavering from Johnny and towards the lush Orlando, whose deep dark eyes are so open and trusting and... mmmmm.
Already box office sales for Pirates have topped the charts, as expected - outselling Spiderman and Shrek by far, and making it reigning king of the "threequels". Though no definite plans for a fourth version have been released yet, the rumour mill is buzzing with all the loose ends - will Keira and Orlando live happily ever after? Will we learn more about Captain Jack's father? Will that monkey ever stop stealing centre-stage? Oh and what on earth happened to Calypso? To be continued (maybe)...

You have to love Johnny don't you? Whether he's excelling as a swash buckling pirate fantasy made flesh,or mooching around in distinctly under dressed combats he is still a joy to behold. How many other men could work the blue sunglasses/panama hat/wrist bangle look at all? Ahh, Johnny..you shiver me timbers.

Johnny Depp has been keeping a beside vigil for his seven-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose, who is currently staying in a London hospital. No one is quite sure of what her illness is, however, it's been reported that she stepped on a rusty nail, and an insider told Touch magazine,"After the wound was left untreated, blood poisoning developed. It has now spread through her body and has affected her vital organs." Depp and his family moved from France to a farmhouse in England, where he's filming Sweeney Todd. (And thankfully not Pirates Of The Carribbean III.) A spokesperson for Depp says, ""We are happy to report that their daughter is doing much better."

Before Johnny Cash died, only a few people would admit to liking him. Now he's passed away, everyone is climbing aboard the Bandwagon in Black. You want proof? Here's Johnny's new (posthumous obviously) track starring Justin Timberlake, Johnny Depp, Chris Rock, Kid Rock (not related), Kate Moss, Keef Richards and various Red Hot Chilli Peppers. Enjoy.

There are plenty of film fans out there who'd love to get their hands on Johnny Depp's clothing. Well now's your chance, thanks to a jumper that Bayraider has found on eBay. It was worn by Johnny for the filming of Chocolat, and is suitably holey (if you remember, his character was IN NO WAY a stereotypical bit of rough with a sensitive side). Anyway, you'll need $6,000 to buy it.
Also today on Bayraider: a Bush family cook-book signed by George Bush Sr and Barbara Bush, and the vest that Al Pacino wore in The Godfather, which is in better shape than Johnny's jumper despite being more than 30 years old.

You can't wipe your kids' faces in public these days without someone nicking your hanky and flogging it on eBay. At least, you can't if you're Angelina Jolie, whose snot-encrusted cloth is on sale for $1,500 according to Bayraider. They've also found a "family insider" who's selling a gallery of photographs of Johnny Depp's wedding to Vanessa Paradis for the shocking price of $100,000. If that was in piratical doubloons, I'd consider it... [Stuart Dredge]

How does Johnny Depp find the time to act? Judging by eBay, he spends most of his time autographing random Pirates Of The Carribbean stuff. Anyway, I've had a dig for today's eBay Focus, and have turned up some more interesting Depp-orabilia.
- A pop art painting of Jack Sparrow, using "top quality acrylics", canvas-fans!
- Remember Johnny's role in The Brave? No, me neither. But you can buy his fireplace pokers nonetheless.
- An individual brick from Depp's birthplace. They have scant information in the auction listing though - I don't know if this means his hometown, his home state, or just the US.
- This is more like it: an 18-inch Edward Scissorhands action figure.
- A full production script from Pirates Of The Carribbean that's, yes, signed by Johnny (as well as Keira, Orlando and all the gang).
- A handpainted resin figure of Jack Sparrow. That's enough Pirates stuff for now.
- Going a bit more leftfield, how about a Japanese photo-book called 'The Life And Art of Johnny Depp'? The text is in Japanese, but most women I know (and a fair few men) would buy it just for the pictures.
- Continuing the international theme, here's a French poster for What's Eating Gilbert Grape? I'm not sure why it wasn't called 'Qui est-ce-que mange Gilbert Grape?' though. Apart from the fact that my French is probably rubbish.
- Old-school VHS videos of Depp's first starring role in TV series 21 Jump Street.
- Oh alright one more piratey item: a Jack Sparrow Afghan tapestry throw blanket. Because your Ikea sofa needs a swashbuckly touch to be properly cool.
