New York City was the place to be for “Pirates of the Caribbean” alumni last night! While Keira Knightley was across town for the premiere of “Atonement,” Johnny Depp was over at the Zeigfeld Theatre hamming it up for his new flick “Sweeney Todd.”
Depp was looking dapper for the cameras, which begs the question, “Do the clothes make the man, or is it the man that makes the clothes?”
In “Sweeney Todd” Johnny teamed up, once again, with Tim Burton. Despite their frequent collaboration, Burton says this is the first time he’s heard Depp sing. Tim told press, "He did surprise me. It was better than I thought so that is always an exciting surprise."
Meanwhile, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” hunk told press his role in “Sweeney Todd” was therapeutic. "With every character you play there is some opportunity for therapy in a sense. There is exploration to some degree, exorcism in a way."
Enjoy the pictures of Johnny at the NYC premiere of "Sweeney Todd" (December 3).
