Johnny Depp Filmography

At Hollywood Insider, we are fans of Johnny Depp and his ability to transform in totality to become the role he is essaying. Be it a pirate, a man with scissors for hands, a public enemy and gangster romancing Marion Cotillard, the mad hatter guiding Alice, a protective brother to Leonardo DiCaprio – Depp always leaves us visibly awestruck knowing that no one else could have done the role he played. There is no other actor in the history of Hollywood as versatile as The Johnny Depp. Here we look at all the ways the actor, heartthrob and movie star has evolved since his credited debut in 1984 to his mind-blowing leading performances in films such as ‘Edward Scissorhands’, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, ‘Public Enemies’, etc. We celebrate Johnny Depp’s filmography. In an industry, where most A-list leading men have chosen to stick to muscled-up superhero genre, gun-toting action men, lovestruck romantic leads, etc, Depp continues to rule all genres, succeeding in each and more. It comes as a shock that Depp has yet to win an Academy Award – this is a travesty. There is a lot more to come from Depp and we are excited for his future movies, roles and landmark performances. We are rooting for you Depp, Hollywood Insider will always support you.

We are actively, physically and digitally a part of this global movement. We will continue reporting on this major issue of police brutality and legal murders of Black people to hold the system accountable. We will continue reporting on this major issue with kindness and respect to all Black people, as each and every one of them are seen and heard.
