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 AwardÂ®-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
