Johnny Depp to Bring Dr. Seuss to the Big Screen

by at . Comments

With a brief personal scandal behind him, Johnny Depp can now return to what he does best: portray unique character on the big screen. From Captain Jack Sparrow to Sweeney Todd, no one does it better.

Up next, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar-winning actor will anchor a live action movie about the life of iconic children's author Dr. Seuss. It's unknown what form the film will take, but Depp has "the potential to star as Seuss," the article reads.

J. Depp

Born Theodor Geisel, Dr. Seuss' best well-known books include “Green Eggs and Ham,” “The Cat in the Hat,” “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish,” “Horton Hears a Who!” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas!”

As for Depp, he'll star in The Rum Diary, which hits theaters on October 28.

Johnny is great. However talked into doing that film with Angelina Jolie should be shot. That whole picture was about nothing except how long the camera could stay on her body. She is a fine actress but you wouldn't know it from that. I have read some critics say it was their chemistry causing it to bomb. That excuse won't work.

Johnny Seuss danced with a moose! I do not loathe this as Madonna does hydrangeas! I love it instead!! May he take as much acid as possible during the shoot. O happy day!

I agree with NYJ his character roles are starting to become so predictable. I mean yea he's an amazing actor, but I've kinda been curious to see other actors take on such roles. What's gonna happen when he starts getting older? Who will they pick for these interseting and strange roles? I think Hollywood should start thinking about other options not to say that he isn't a good actor it's just Johnny can't stay young forever. They make it seem like he's the only unique actor, they should give others a chance IMO who knows they might be brilliant.

"Johnny Depp can now return to what he does best: portray unique character on the big screen. From Captain Jack Sparrow to Sweeney Todd, no one does it better." Unfortunately at this point, Johnny's 'unique characters' are increasingly nothing more than caricatures and cartoons.
