Johnny Depp Talks About US Customs Pulling Guns on Him for 'Drugs' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 14th 2011 12:30AM
Johnny Depp, 'The Graham Norton Show'On 'The Graham Norton Show' (Sat., 10PM ET on BBC America), Johnny Depp said he once told a customs agent that he had piranha and vampire bats in one of his bags. We thought he was cracking a joke for Norton's audience. Then, we thought maybe he was cracking a joke for the customs officials.

It turns out he really did have these things, along with a powdered vitamin supplement that somehow exploded all over the contents of the bag. At this point, Ricky Gervais completely hijacked the interview to get Depp back on point. The actor was talking about the powder, but that clearly wasn't the most interesting part of this story.

Chelsea Handler Supports Johnny Depp Partying Too Hard (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Nov 4th 2011 5:45AM
'Chelsea Lately'When tabloid magazines like In Touch Weekly put together an article saying that Johnny Depp is partying too hard, despite having previously sworn off alcohol, they're expecting readers to be outraged, or shocked at the very least. On 'Chelsea Lately' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on E!), Chelsea Handler didn't have either of those reactions.

"Why shouldn't Johnny Depp be partying?" she asked. "I support his partying. He's playing Hunter S. Thompson in a movie and he gives us movies every year. Go get f***** up!"

And actually, maybe he's just getting into the character of Hunter S. Thompson, in which case we'd better worry about far worse things than him getting drunk.

Johnny Depp Talks Justin Bieber on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

by Catherine Lawson, posted Oct 28th 2011 5:30AM
Johnny Depp, 'Late Show'Johnny Depp knows a thing or two about being a teen heartthrob, so who better to consider the phenomenon known as Justin Bieber? The first time Depp came across the Bieb, he told 'Late Show' (Weeknights., 11:30PM ET on CBS) host David Letterman, was when he was doing press interviews for his movie 'Rango.'

When a journalist acted Depp if he was "a Belieber" the actor was at first confused, and he thought maybe the guy either had a speech impediment or had downed a few drinks. But then the old synapses fired off and he realized what the guy was talking about.

So Depp said, "Of course, I'm a huge Belieber." And then, as if by magic, Bieber himself appeared in the room. "I don't know if we summoned him up?" joked Depp.

48 Hours Mystery, Johnny Depp, Memphis 3If you're sitting in prison accused of a cold-blooded crime and you've got Johnny Depp saying you're innocent ... well, that's something. But what, really? Does Depp have some inside scoop on the West Memphis 3, the teenagers convicted of murdering three 8-year-old boys?

"I'm here because I firmly, truly, a thousand percent believe that Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley are totally innocent," Depp said on '48 Hours Mystery' (Sat., 10PM ET on CBS).

And other celebrities like Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and the Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines support the three, as well. What say you? Think they're innocent?

Johnny Depp Reveals Secret for Getting Into Character (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 25th 2010 1:00PM
Johnny Depp dropped by 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS) and revealed that he gets into character by listening to custom mixes of music that evoke whoever he's playing.

"I get musical inspiration for the characters. Like, for example, there was a band -- actually, Terry Gilliam turned me onto this band called Sunset Rubdown. It was a great few songs on there that just defined the Hatter for me perfectly," Depp said, explaining how he got into character for Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland.'

Johnny Depp, Sandra Bullock Top 2010 People's Choice Awards Winners

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jan 7th 2010 2:16AM
Sandra Bullock, People's Choice Awards 2010It was a low-key night for the 2010 People's Choice Awards, the 36th annual gala celebrating fan favorites in movies, TV and music. Nothing particularly amazing or outlandish happened, and most of the stars donned conventional gowns, including host Queen Latifah, who looks fabulous these days. She started the show off with a musical medley, including Susan Boyle's hit 'I Dreamed a Dream,' then launched into the presentations.

We didn't see all of the awards being presented, including Favorite Talk Show Host, won by Ellen DeGeneres. But, of course, she had a few words to say about it. "Oprah, I love you, and I'm sorry your show got canceled." Then she added something about winning eleven times, "one for each of Sandra Bullock's toes." Maybe that was a private joke between the two?

Pee Wee's Playhouse movie has a script, but does it have a screen?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 15th 2009 2:00PM
Pee Wee HermanNow that Pee Wee Herman's big comeback is officially in full swing, more news is coming down the pike and today's secret word is "movie."

Pee Wee told the press he has a script for a movie (AHHHHHHHH!) based on his popular Saturday morning kids' show Pee Wee's Playhouse. He said the movie (AHHHHHHH!) would bring back all of the show's original characters and take them out of the playhouse and into the broader, fictional world of "Puppetland." It's also described as a family-friendly movie (AHHHHHHH!), although judging from the reaction my old man had to the show when I watched it as a kid, "family-friendly" might be a loose term for this movie (AHHHHHHH!).

A Pee Wee's Playhouse film has always been lurking around in development hell. An earlier version with Johnny Depp as the title character was being shopped around way back in 2007. If Pee-Wee's Playhouse became a mo.., er, feature film, would you watch it?

The convention that WAS and WASN'T - Comic-Con Report

by John Scott Lewinski, posted Jul 27th 2009 10:09AM
Not everyone at Comic-Con International was a fan of Twilight.There's still plenty of Comic-Con International coverage en route from me, including exclusive interviews you'll only find here.

But, as the Monday morning after the madness dawns, we'll take a few minutes and review the major impressions left by the four day weekend.

What happened? What were the biggest themes of the convention and what didn't happen that everyone was hoping would. In other words, what was Comic-Con 2009, and where did it fall short?

A happy 10th birthday to Mr. Squarepants

by Richard Keller, posted Jan 19th 2009 9:03AM

SpongeBob and the gang are celebrating their 10th birthday all yearI didn't realize that the late 90s offered up so many cartoons that are still around today. A week or so ago, I mentioned that The Powerpuff Girls were celebrating a 10th birthday with a Cartoon Network special and complete DVD box set. Now comes news that a certain walking and talking sponge is celebrating a 10-year anniversary, as well.

Nickelodeon's pants-wearing sponge will be celebrating his decade of entertainment in a number of ways. If you go to the new SpongeBob.com you'll have a chance to play SpongeBob games, watch SpongeBob videos, and read the blog of Mr. SquarePants' creators. If you watch any of the networks of the MTV universe (which Nickelodeon is a part of) you'll be able to view a documentary on the character and its popularity. Finally, if you can wait a few months, you will be able to catch some new SpongeBob SquarePants episodes featuring Dennis Quaid (March) and Johnny Depp (April).

Seven retro network promos to leave you confused, delighted - VIDEOS

by Eliot Glazer, posted Dec 30th 2008 10:02AM
abcWhile ABC, NBC, and CBS have historically remained in a cutthroat battle for viewers, each network has shared one common trait: come the season of network promotional campaigns, all actors must be prepared to look absolutely ridiculous.

After the jump ... Remember this pop cultural gem (video below) that gained traction on the Net not too long ago? The sheer oddity of the clip alone forces us to ask ourselves several questions: do these people all live together? Why is Marla Gibbs dressed like an astronaut? Does Bea Arthur do everybody's shoppingl? CAN'T NELL CARTER JUST SIT DOWN AND REST HER FEET FOR A SECOND? (Seriously, give her a break!)

My Own Worst Enemy: Breakdown (series premiere)

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 14th 2008 9:05AM
Christian Slater(S01E01) Watching My Own Worst Enemy is like deja vu. You feel like you've seen something like this before. Was it The Bourne Identity, Casino Royale, Minority Report, Mr. and Mrs. Smith? Or maybe it was something on TV, like that failed Ray Liotta series Smith or Jennifer Garner's Alias or The Bionic Woman or The Six Million Dollar Man or something else...

See, that's the problem with My Own Worst Enemy. It's familiar but not in a cool way. Rather it's derivative and not very compelling. NBC is already doing a double life, super secret spy thing much better in the ratings-challenged Chuck.

The obvious appeal of My Own Worst Enemy is two-fold: lots of action including cool gadgets, cars (thank you, GM), guns, blood and the mystery, combined with the charm and complexity of Christian Slater. Slater's a fun actor, a sort of Jack Nicholson only younger. I remember when he first started on Ryan's Hope! He's got something.

Pee Wee's Playhouse: The Movie, staring ... Johnny Depp?

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 12th 2007 12:22PM
Pee-Wee's PlayhouseAccording to the Daily Stab, Johnny Depp is considering playing Pee-Wee Herman in a movie version of the former kid's show (and former HBO special) Pee-Wee's Playhouse. Depp has a history of taking on unusual roles and this would certainly be no exception.

The script would be by Paul Reubens, the original Pee-Wee. The two actors have known each other for a while, having worked together in the 2001 movie Blow. Also, both are casting favorites of director Tim Burton (Burton's professional directorial debut was the movie Pee-Wee's Big Adventure).

Johnny Depp on Japanese talk show - VIDEO

by Anna Johns, posted Jun 24th 2007 12:26PM
johnny depp; japaneseThe Japanese just do some things better. For instance? Game shows. Japanese television execs understand that people want to see other people perform ridiculous physical challenges for prizes.

Another example? Talk shows. This one in particular. I have no idea what the show is called, but it kind-of reminds me of a Japanese version of Wayne's World because it looks like it's on cable access and is filmed in someone's basement. And Johnny Depp went on it. Apparently for the second time. It's weird because A) Depp doesn't speak the language, B) Depp is the only one sitting while two other guys in suits stand around and interrogate him, and C) well, you just have to watch for yourself but let's just say there are little kids dressed as pirates, singing "It's A Small World." Depp, by the way, is the perfect gentleman and reacts to everything with gratitude.
