Today is actor Johnny Depp’s birthday.
Depp is one of the most prolific male leads working in Hollywood today, with a number of memorable films to his name. His biggest, and most lucrative franchise however, is undoubtedly Pirates of the Caribbean for Disney. As the colorful Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp has led the franchise through four feature films, with a fifth installment planned.
Depp also frequently collaborates with director Tim Burton, often headlining the auteurs’ fantastical films. With Burton, Depp has starred in Alice in Wonderland, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Willy Wonky and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Sleepy Hollow, and Edward Scissor Hands.
Born in Owensboro, Kentucky, Depp turns 52 today. Happy Birthday, Johnny Depp.
