Default Johnny Depp just became my favorite actor.

I was driving into work and I heard this news story. What a wonderful thing to do. I like hearing stories like this. I thought he was a talented actor before, it's nice to know he is a good person also.
Argh, classmates! Pirate Johnny Depp at UK school - Forbes.com

Quote:
Shiver me timbers! Actor Johnny Depp shocked a London school by answering a pupil's fan letter and visiting classes dressed as his character from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie series, teachers said Friday.

Depp, 47, responded after 9-year-old Beatrice Delap sent a letter pleading for help in leading a mutiny against her teachers at Meridian Primary School in Greenwich, a district in southeastern London.

Dressed as his character Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp performed pirate songs and dances for the pupils during the visit with four other cast members on Wednesday.

It's nice to hear something like this versus some of the other stuff we hear about actors.

I have to say that I believe Johnny Depp is probably the best actor we have today. He can play a wide range of characters and does it very well. I used to say Al Pacino was today's best actor but now every character he portrays is just a variation of his character he played in Scent of a Woman. Hoo Ya!!!

Take care,
Mike

So many celebrities do not so nice things it is refreshing to hear of one that does something nice.

Nice to hear this about Johnny Depp ,however ,as an actor IMHO he is not in the same class as DeNiro and Pacino ,With reference to Mike M's point about Pacino being the same in his current films I suggest viewing him portray Jack Kevorkian .

Henry,

You are correct. I remembered his performance in "You Don't Know Jack" not too long after I posted this. He has redeemed himself.

Take care,
Mike
