Awesome / Johnny Depp

  • Originally, his role as Captain Jack Sparrow was supposed to be your standard-fare, classical pirate. Think Errol Flynn sort. Instead, Depp showed up and gave us…Captain Jack Sparrow. The executives were pissed, fearing that Depp was going to ruin the movie they wanted. Depp's response? "Trust me, or fire me." They trusted him. Wise choice.
  • Being a very physical actor, Depp actually does most of his stunts in films, particularly in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, Sleepy Hollow and The Lone Ranger.
