I got a message from the editor and chief that said, among other things: “Also since you’re a big on Johnny Depp, anyway you can do this one? New pic of him in Dark Shadow”
How to put this….
“Big on Johnny Depp” is only semi-accurate.
It’s like if you, reader, grew up with a scar on your face (like Tina Fey!) and people kept saying you were really into having a face scars. It’s not so much that I’m big on Johnny Depp as I’m frequently told I look like him, and even when I bought new glasses, they ended up being the glasses from Ninth Gate and now I can’t really wear them.
Luckily, I’ve never looked like this Vanity Fair photo:
My neurosis is on display, because I’m having real trouble getting pysched about this.
Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton walk into a bar. On that bar’s television is Dark Shadows, a long-running, notriously bad supernatural soap opera. Depp says: “I like saying ‘Barnabas’ it rolls of the tongue.” Carter orders a whiskey with a twist of mouse skeleton. Burton looks up at the TV and says: “Yes, but what if it were MORE BROAD?”
The punchline to this joke is called Dark Shadows and you can pay to hear/see it on October 2nd.
DId you see the Frankenweenie trailer?
