Johnny Depp stars in Mortdecai, the wild-looking comedy that features an all-star cast and, honestly, a role that appears to be right up Depp’s alley.
It’s refreshing to see him return to comedy and he seems to be relishing the title character role as a global hot-spot hopper who, as the song that plays in the first Mortdecai trailer says, is a “Big Spender.”
Mortdecai is having a fun time traveling the world, even while avoiding the British MI5, Russians who want him dead, an international terrorist and even his hard-driving wife.
Depp’s Mortdecai is a high end art dealer who seems to be getting out of jams left and right with his sense of humor, charm and dashing good looks. Oh, and he’s got a bank account filled with Nazi gold!
Mortdecai features a superstar cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, Jeff Goldblum and Paul Bettany.
Look for it February 6, 2015, and in the meantime, check out one of Depp’s great cameos (where he’s equally as funny) and watch 21 Jump Street online.
