How many more Depp/Burton films are we going to see? I like both of those guys, but come on, it seems that they can’t get enough of each other.

Report: Johnny Depp reunites with his old rock band “The Kids” for benefit show…

Yep, in the pic above is a recent photo of hollywood actor Johnny Depp, rocking on stage strapped into what it looks like he is playing a Fender Stratocaster electric guitar. Look how far down he’s got the guitar strapped! It’s difficult to play it that way! Other than acting, some of you may or may not know that Johnny’s other passion is music and playing guitar. It’s what he does as a hobby in his spare time.

Johnny Depp reunites with this old band “The Kids”, with original members of the band he played with when he was back in high school. As a kid, Johnny originally wanted to pursue a career in rock music but when the band broke up, Johnny decided to go for acting in films instead.

Johnny’s band “The Kids” reunited for the second time at the Sheila Witkin Memorial Reunion concert, a benefit show with all proceeds going to the Dan Marino Foundation. The first time the band reunited was at the same concert back in 2007. Johnny’s girlfriend and 9 year old daughter were in attendance in the crowd cheering along with 2500 fans.

Johnny Depp is a popular iconic actor known to star in many blockbuster films such as the “Pirates of the Carribean” trilogy, “Sweeney Todd”, “Sleepy Hollow”, “Edward Scissorhands”, “What Eating Gilbert Grape”, “Chocolat”, “Blow”, “Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas”, “Donnie Brasco”, “From Hell”, etc.

I think Johnny Depp needs to start his own solo career in the music biz. If so many actors like Billy Bob, Jared Leto, and Scarlett Johansson are coming with records, why can’t Johnny come out with his own?

Depp looks like a total badass on stage with a guitar! Johnny plays real good too judging by the videos below and of course, he’s getting the girls dancing!

Heck, maybe the Kids will release an album on their own someday!

Report: Depp, Farrell, Law donate “Dr. Parnassus” paychecks to Matilda…

Everybody thinks “The Dark Knight” is Heath Ledger’s final film, but it’s not true. If everyone gets their facts straight, Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus” is Heath’s last and final film ever. This was the film Heath Ledger was still filming before he died. Heath Ledger originally was supposed to play the leading role throughout the entire film but due to his death, three big name actors took over Heath’s spot leaving the real Heath a cameo in the film.

Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law who starred in the film agreed to give their paychecks they got from making the film to Matilda, the daughter of Heath and Michelle Williams.

Those three guys did a great thing. They got plenty of money, they don’t really need it. Matilda deserved it.

Kudos.
