SLEEPY HOLLOW

JOHNNY DEPP's (Ichabod crane) "Edwards Scissorhands" established him as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents and earned him a Best Actor Golden Globe nomination. He was honored with a second Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal in "Benny & Joon," an off-beat love story in which he starred with Aidan Quinn and Mary Stuart Masterson. Depp was reunited with Tim Burton for the heralded "Ed Wood," the story of one of America's most eccentric B-movie directors. His performance in this film garnered Depp his third Best Actor Golden Globe nomination.

Depp starred in Mike Newell's critical and commercial hit "Donnie Brasco," alongside Al Pacino, and in "Don Juan DeMarco" as a man convinced he is the world's greatest lover, opposite Marlon Brando. His other films include "The Astronaut's Wife," Terry Gilliam's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas," based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel of the same title; Jim Jarmusch's "Dead Man," a western set in the lat 1800s; Lasse Hallstrom's "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," which starred Depp in the title role; Emir Kusturica's "Arizona Dream," in which he starred with Jerry Lewis and Faye Dunaway; and Paramount's thriller "Nick of Time," with Christopher Walken. Depp's upcoming films include Roman Polanski's "The Ninth Gate" and Sally Potter's "The Man Who Cried."

Depp recently expanded his position as one of America's most versatile leading actors by starring in, directing and co-writing "The Brave," based on the novel by Gregory McDonald. The controversial film, which also features Marlon Brando, premiered at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival. Depp co-wrote the screenplay with his brother D.P. Depp.

The Kentucky-born actor grew up in Florida, where he developed an early interest in music. After joining a rock band named The Kids, Depp found considerable regional success and eventually followed the group to Los Angeles. When the band broke up shortly thereafter, he turned to acting on the advice of a friend. It wasn't long before Depp landed his first major acting job in "Nightmare on Elm Stree." He went on to earn roles in several other films, including "Slow Burn" and the Academy award-winning "Platoon." Depp then won the role that would prove to be his breakthrough, as undercover detective Tom Hanson on the popular Fox television show "21 Jump Street." He starred on the series for four seasons before segueing to the big screen in the lead role of John Waters' affectionate homage to the 1950s, "Cry Baby."

As a musician, Depp has played guitar on two albums with the band Oasis as well as with Shane McGowan, formerly of The Pogues. He is also a member of the band "P," whose other members include Butthole Suffer Gibby Haynes, guitarist Bill Carter, Sex Pistol Steve Jones, Red Hot Chili Pepper Flea and Sal Jenco.
