PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN DEAD MAN'S CHEST

JOHNNY DEPP reprises his Academy Award®- and Golden Globe®- nominated role of Captain Jack Sparrow in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST. Depp also received a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award® for his portrayal of Captain Jack in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.”

Depp has earned both critical and popular acclaim for his unique work in a variety of memorable feature films. Most recently, he collaborated with director Tim Burton for the fourth and fifth times, on "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” for which Depp received a Golden Globe® nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical, and "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride,” which received a 2005 Academy Award® nomination for Best Animated Film. Based on the beloved Roald Dahl classic, Depp portrayed eccentric chocolatier Willy Wonka in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” which opened to impressive critical and box-office success internationally. For "Tim Burton's Corpse Bride,” Depp loaned his voice to the lead character of Victor Van Dort in the wildly imaginative film, which was one of last year's most celebrated releases. In a striking contrast, Depp also recently starred opposite John Malkovich and Samantha Morton in Laurence Dunmore's "The Libertine” as 17th-century womanizing poet John Wilmot, the Earl of Rochester.

Depp received an Academy Award® nomination, Golden Globe® nomination, Screen Actors Guild Award® nomination and BAFTA nomination for his role as J.M. Barrie in Mark Forster's "Finding Neverland,” in which he starred opposite Kate Winslet and Freddie Highmore.

Depp's other screen credits include David Koepp's "Secret Window,” Robert Rodriguez's "Once Upon a Time in Mexico,” Albert and Allen Hughes' "From Hell,” Ted Demme's "Blow,” Lasse Hallström's romantic comedy "Chocolat,” Julian Schnabel's "Before Night Falls,” Sally Potter's "The Man Who Cried,” Tim Burton's "Sleepy Hollow,” Roman Polanski's "The Ninth Gate” and Terry Gilliam's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

Hailed as the "Best Actor” of his generation for his performance in Mike Newell's "Donnie Brasco” with Al Pacino, Depp has also starred in Jim Jarmusch's "Dead Man” and in Jeremy Leven's "Don Juan DeMarco,” in which he starred as a man convinced he is the world's greatest lover, opposite legendary actors Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway.

It was his compelling performance in the title role of Tim Burton's "Edward Scissorhands” that established Depp 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 work in the offbeat love story "Benny & Joon,” directed by Jeremiah S. Chechik. Depp reunited with Burton for the critically acclaimed "Ed Wood,” for which his performance garnered him his third Best Actor Golden Globe® nomination.

Other films include Lasse Hallström's "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?,” Emir Kusturica's "Arizona Dream” and John Badham's "Nick of Time.”

Depp began his career as a musician, joining a rock group named Kids, which eventually took him to Los Angeles. When the band broke up, he turned to acting and earned his first major acting job in "Nightmare on Elm Street.” He went on to earn roles in several films, including Oliver Stone's 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' "Cry-Baby.”
