Does Johnny have real talent?

Or does his wardrobe save him?

I know he's massively loved ... so why can't we see something different from him? Why does it always have to be OTT?















How about something subtle and character driven, once again - like Grape?

Re: Does Johnny have real talent?

This is like asking why does Vin Diesel do action movies?

Why does Adam Sandler do comedies?

Why does Liam Neeson do thrillers?

It is what it is.

And yes, Johnny has much talent, so much talent that he can pull off OTT wardrobes. Can you imagine Tom Cruise as Jack Sparrow? No way. Or George Clooney as Sweeney Todd? Can't do it. Depp has found his niche for sure.

Re: Does Johnny have real talent?

His schtick is tired, for sure. Has been for a long time. I guess it masks his limited ability.

Or maybe he just can't say no to all those millions studios keep throwing at him

Re: Does Johnny have real talent?

i think he has real talent but His roles always eccentric character and different just like him so he is playing a Extreme version of himself.

he should try to act 'normal' from time to time just like he did early in his career a few times.

i still find him great and special

Re: Does Johnny have real talent?

I have a question: who wins a best of 5 tennis match: Johnny Groove after consuming a dozen of Red Bulls or Rogerer Noserer completely wasted after 1 beer?

I'm disappointed. I thought this thread was about Groove. We should make it about him...

Johnny Depp is a mug Used to be really talented but now he pretty much plays the same role over and over again. He needs a break from Tim Burton.

Depp has talent. And he's making tons of money.

Grooves... not so much, either as a tennis player or as a fictional erotica writer. With all due respect.

You compare Depp to Sandler and Diesel. Neither of those can act beyond cliches. Depp however showed he could do subtler roles in 'what's eating Gilbert Grape?' But that was one...And then, all he's known for has been multicolored OTT zilch. Diesel and Sandler can't act subtler emotional roles anyways, and Cruise can't act. When you think of Depp, you feel he has great talent, but you only see a tenth of it on screen.

If Roger drank some beers, he wouldn't choke against Rafa. He's much better player, he'd just triple-bagel Rafa.
