Johnny Depp is arguably the best actor alive today. He's quite versatile and often plays nutty characters.

Depp got his start on the television series, 21 Jump Street. Since then, the Kentucky-born actor has gone on to star in major movies such as Edward Scissorhands, Benny & Joon, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hollow, all four of the Pirate of the Caribbean films, Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factoy, Public Enemies, Alice in Wonderland, The Tourist, The Rum Diary, and Dark Shadows.

To say the least, this actor can pretty much play any role out there.
