These pictures have been circling the internet for the past few days. They are of Johnny Depp (one of my all-time favorite actors) as the Madd Hatter in the Tim Burton rendition of Alice in Wonderland. Honestly, I can’t say that this doesn’t look like a combination of Sweeney Todd mixed with Willy Wonka. I mean, thats why we all love Johnny, he can do weird crazy characters with the best of them. He can do heavy transformations, but does it ever become redundant? I think he’s going to make one helluva Mad Hatter, but I don’t want to feel like I’m watching Sweeney Todd or Edward Scissorhands struggle with his inner Willy Wonka if you know what I mean . . . even though he’ll look hot in his “I’m Johnny Depp and slightly creepy hot” kinda way.
I bet Helena Bonham Carter is going to be in this movie, I need to IMDB this with the quickness. I love IMDB its one of my favorite search engines, the only goto for TV and Movie information. AH HA! I used my other tab to check IMDB and she is in the movie, she’s the Red Queen! I also learned of other note-worthy casting choices: Anne Hathaway is the White Queen. Some person I don’t know named Mia Wasikowska is Alice and Professor Snape from Harry Potter, Alan Rickman to others, is cast as Caterpillar. I think I got a little excited to see Severus Snape as Caterpillar…
One thought on “Johnny Depp is the new Madd Hatter”
Well since Johnny Depp is in it…I guess I’ll be watching Alice in Wonderland lol
