It took a while for me to open up my mind and let Johnny prove to me that he was still, essentially, the same guy I liked so very much on "21 Jump Street." Johnny has always had a way of making me care about what happens to the character he plays, even in films that I really thought I would not like. My early adoration of Tommy Hanson has given way over time to attraction to Roux and Don Juan, and full-blown surrender to Jack Sparrow, to finally come back to the man behind them all, Johnny Depp himself--a character actor trapped in a leading man's body. The more I watch him, the more fascinated I am by his mind and his dedication to his craft. :) And it doesn't hurt that Johnny Depp is the undisputed MASTER of the seductive sideways "come away with me" gaze, as seen here.
