Johnny Depp Adds Another Unsexy Role to His Long List of Unsexy Roles

Johnny Depp Adds Another Unsexy Role to His Long List of Unsexy Roles

johnny deppMajor casting news: Johnny Depp has reportedly signed on to play notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in the upcoming film Black Mass directed by Barry Levinson. Woo-hoo! Another Johnny Depp movie is always reason to rejoice, as far as I'm concerned -- let's face it, he's completely brilliant in every single role he plays. I mean, the man is practically a chameleon, the way he virtually disappears into his characters. It's amazing ... although also sort of a shame when those characters are distinctly nowhere near as hot as Depp himself. And ladies, I'm sorry to say, Whitey Bulger wasn't known for his good looks.

That said, Bulger wasn't as markedly unattractive as some of the other seriously unsexy characters Depp has played in the past (Willy Wonka, hello?!). Of course the underlying Depp-ness of The Depp always shines through, but YIKES ... remember these revolting roles?

    In the Tim Burton-directed film of the same name, Depp was hilariously NOT hot as cult icon Ed Wood. (I think he looked better in drag.)

  • The Mad Hatter

    Depp was deliciously delirious in the (again, Burton-directed) Alice in Wonderland ... but I wouldn't drink anything out of this guy's tea cup, if you catch my drift.

  • Hunter S. Thompson

    Depp's portrayal of Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas will go down in history as one of the most awesome performances ever recorded on film. Still. Sexy? Not so much.

  • Willy Wonka

    Some say Depp was channeling Michael Jackson in Burton's version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I say Make the scary man go away!!

    Okay, there were moments in Dark Shadows where Depp managed to be incredibly charming ... except, long fingernails on a guy? Can't do it. Gross!!
