Johnny Depp
Actor, Finding Neverland (2004)
Johnny Depp really is very, very odd. With his slicked-back hair, evening dress and dark three-piece suits for daywear, he looks like a cross between a minor public-school housemaster and Count Dracula on Temazepam. His performance, torpidly solemn and self-conscious as a potential Oscar-winner, has a fraction of the zip of his comic turns in Pirates of the Caribbean and Ed Wood. And that Scottish accent... Depp sounds most like the erstwhile Liverpool and Scotland football international Ian St John. St John would have shown more emotion in the role than Depp, whose sleepily droll, feline deportment is never for a moment disordered.
