JOHNNY DEPP (Sands) has earned both critical and popular acclaim for his work in an array of memorable film roles. He starred in Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow opposite Christina Ricci, marking his third collaboration with Burton. Their previous efforts, Ed Wood and Edward Scissorhands, earned Depp Best Actor Golden Globe nominations. Depp's recent films include Chocolat, The Man Who Cried, Blow, The Astronaut's Wife, Roman Polanski's The Ninth Gate and Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, based on the Hunter S. Thompson novel.

Depp's latest film projects include the hit adventure Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Next year, he will star in the Stephen King adaptation Secret Window for Columbia Pictures and Neverland co-starring Kate Winslet.

Depp received acclaim for his performance opposite Al Pacino in Donnie Brasco. In Don Juan DeMarco, he portrayed a man convinced he is the world's greatest lover. His co-stars were the legendary Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway. He delivered another fascinating performance in Jim Jarmusch's western Dead Man, and was honored with a Golden Globe nomination for Benny & Joon, an offbeat love story co-starring Aidan Quinn and Mary Stuart Masterson. Depp's other films include What's Eating Gilbert Grape directed by Lasse Hallström, Arizona Dream directed by Emir Kusturica, in which he starred with Jerry Lewis and Faye Dunaway, and Nick of Time directed by John Badham.

The Kentucky-born actor grew up in Florida where he developed an early interest in music. Joining a rock band named Kids, Depp found considerable regional success, eventually following the group to Los Angeles. When the band broke up shortly thereafter, he turned to acting on the advice of a friend. He soon landed his first important role in Nightmare On Elm Street. It was followed by several other films including Slow Burn and the Academy Award®-winning Platoon, which led to a breakthrough role as undercover detective Tim Hanson on the hit Fox TV series "21 Jump Street." He starred on the show for four seasons before returning to the big screen in the lead role of John Waters' Cry Baby.

Depp starred in and made his feature directorial debut with The Brave based on the novel by Gregory McDonald. Depp also co-wrote the screenplay with his brother D.P. Depp.
