Talking About Making Movies: Well Above Average Blog Talks about Johnny Depp Inside the Actors Studio
Stella from Well Above Average watches probably more tv than I do in a year– I DVR everything and then look back at how much I missed and then wipe up a bunch except for some select shows. Thanks to Stella, she gives me a heads up on some special stuff and I even manage to find time to not only read her blog about it but actually get a DVD that she’s talking about!!
So it goes with JOHNNY DEPP (wooooooo hoooooooooo) hitting the show ” Inside the Actor’s Studio” which is a perfect fit to find out how this actor maintains his sanity with a family and the characters that he plays– quirky as they are. How much of it is really him and how much of it is acting?
Here’s a snipped of Well Above Average
my interest was definitely piqued at the November 20th release of the DVD of his interview with the swaggering Jack Sparrow (—and Sweeney Todd–SW) , aka Johnny Depp. Depp is notoriously reticent–would this interview consist mainly of Lipton, always in love with the sound of his own voice, answering his own questions?
Despite the appearance of the cover of the DVD where it looks like Johnny is thinking, “Oh God, not the Bernard Pivot questionnaire, you supercilious twit!,” Lipton actually manages to get a decent interview out of Depp. Although he is not as engaging or eloquent as his contemporaries, Russell Crowe or Sean Penn from the Leading Men series, Depp does open up (relatively speaking) about his professional craft and even his personal life.
There’s a LOT more to this blog post and so you better head over and read it– I do agree that this would make a fabulous holiday gift for anyone who has seen Johnny Depp– even dating back to his 21 Jump Street days (that’s on DVD too!).
Check out Well Above Average— because I certainly do– OFTEN and you are going to see more of Stella’s commentary on life, pop culture and “living la vida Los Angeles” aka her life in LA!
