Biographies
  • Johnny Depp
  • Cameron Diaz
  • . Johnny Depp had been an actor in teen movies such as "A Nightmare on Elm Street" before he was seen weekly in the popular series, "21 Jump Street".  Although it was a favorite with viewers, Depp was unhappy. Depp left the show and went back to movies, appearing in "Cry Baby" and his 'thumbs up' performances in "Edward Scissorhands" and "What's Eating Gilbert Grape". 

    Johnny Depp has a reputation for being intense and moody.  He lives on the edge.  He's been in trouble with the law, there's always interest in who his lady of the moment is and he is part owner of The Viper Room, a club in LA.  If nothing else, Depp is interesting. 

    Aside from being one of today's most talented actors, as seen in "Dead Man" and "Donnie Brasco", he has tried his hand at directing. Marlon Brando starred in the Depp directed flick "The Brave."
