The Best of Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp. Gorgeous. Talented. Kind. The man’s got it all. Depp is one of the most influential performers of the last fifty years, an iconic piece of Hollywood that raised the bar for acting. The legend is credited in over 70 movies since 1984, when he made his debut as an unfortunate victim of Freddy Krueger’s wrath in the original A Nightmare On Elm Street movie. Since then, he has proven his artistic versatility over and over, taking roles from the dark and serious to the whimsical and giddy, totally dominating every role.

'Magic Mike' Sequel Release Date Announced

Channing Tatum, who is co-writing the movie, recently spoke to MTV about the sequel. “We want to have real, like reality in it, but we don't want to make like some dark drama. There was some darkness in the last movie and I think it surprised people and shocked people. This one, we want to have a lot of conflict and a lot of struggle, but we also want there to be a shit ton of fun,” Tatum said.

As far as which of the guys will be back for the sequel Tatum said, “I think everyone's gonna be back, I think, and obviously nobody's deals are done.”

Since the director of the first film, Steven Soderbergh, has since retired from directing, Greg Jacobs will step in to helm the movie.

David Letterman Tags In Stephen Colbert for Late Show Host

But the question remains: will Colbert continue to play his character on the Late Show, or will he be, well, himself?

Colbert’s Comedy Central persona is already similar to his real-life person, from his affinity for The Lord Of The Rings to being raised in South Carolina. But the humor is largely contained in the cluelessness of his political beliefs, and that could be lost, as the Late Show is guest-centric and significantly less political than Colbert’s own show. Not to mention Letterman is a staple of late night television, and filling his shoes would be hard enough on someone who hasn’t spent more than ten years playing a part.

But Colbert’s fans know they’re in good hands! Colbert is a talented speaker and a natural comic, and his most devoted have no doubts that he is the best man for the job. We can’t wait until 2015!
