I know this is an insane question but how may of you wouldnt have watched Pirates of the carribean if Johnny Depp wasnt in i t ? Because all of my firends dont even like the movie they have just watched because of Johhny . Is this true for everyone ?
I really don't think that Johnny Depp has done so well in other films (that's my opinion), mainly because of the genre. But as far as POTC goes... he MAKES the films. Who would want to watch Nicholas Cage or Brad Pitt play Jack Sparrow? They could try, but Captain Jack would NOT be how we know him. I think Johnny Depp has totally gone beyond himself as an actor and reached a level that few actors make. He basically created JS (as we know and love him), and his popularity greatly increased. Before POTC many people probably did not know who Johnny Depp was (even if they had heard the name before). Now almost everyone knows who he is! Even the people who don't care would probably say "are you talking about that guy from the pirate film?". Another thing that I like about Jack Sparrow is that he doesn't have a love attachment--that would take the attention away from him--and the films are about him. So... we get one very interesting pirate who shares some very funny (and serious, too) moments with us.
