Johnny Depp Overheard Extolling Virtues Of Fat Bottomed Girls
Johnny Depp Overheard Extolling Virtues Of Fat Bottomed Girls In Shower In Preparation For Film Role
Disney's $3.26 billion box office take is due in no small part to the talents of chameleonlike Actor of his Generation Johnny Depp--more specifically, his Captain Jack Sparrow, whom he claims is a riff on Keith Richards, but whose effete posturing, let's face it, heeds somewhat closer to Elton John after five too many Cointreautinis. Fitting, then, that the actor should now be in talks to play another gay British rock icon, Queen's handlebar-mustachioed lead singer, Freddie Mercury:
[T]he Pirates of the Caribbean star, Johnny Depp, is being lined up to play a rock star for real in a biopic of the late Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury. Robert de Niro's company, Tribeca Productions, is said to be behind the project, which Brian May, the Queen guitarist, confirmed was in development. "Discussions are at an early stage," he said on his website.
May described Depp as "fantastic". "He would be a worthy counterpart for Freddie on screen. I don't think I can say any more right now," he added.Beyond Depp's passing physical resemblance to the singer, the actor has left his indelible mark on so many oddball characters of outsized personality and unclassifiable sexuality--from Edward Scissorhands to Willy Wonka, Ed Wood to Sleepy Hollow's Ichabod Crane--that he seems a dream choice to fill Mercury's shrink-wrapped red leather jumpsuit.

Depp is the man. If the movie is done right I totally see an Oscar for that role.
...meanwhile, back at headquarters.
