PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN
ON STRANGER TIDES

JOHNNY DEPP (Captain Jack Sparrow) began his career as a musician with the rock group The Kids, which took him to Los Angeles. When the band broke up, Depp turned to acting and earned his first major acting job in "A Nightmare on Elm Street.” He followed that with roles in several films, including Oliver Stone's Academy Award®–winning "Platoon” before landing the role that would prove to be his breakthrough, as undercover detective Tom Hanson on the popular TV show "21 Jump Street.” He starred on the series for four seasons before starring as the title role in John Waters' "Cry-Baby.”

It was Depp's compelling performance in the title role of Tim Burton's "Edward Scissorhands” that established him as one of Hollywood's most sought-after talents and earned him his first Golden Globe® Award nomination as Best Actor. He was honored with another 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,” and his performance garnered him yet another Golden Globe® Award nomination for Best Actor.

Depp starred and made his feature directorial debut opposite Marlon Brando in "The Brave,” a film based on the novel by Gregory McDonald. He co-wrote the screenplay with his brother D.P. Depp.

As Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp reprised the role for a third time in Gore Verbinski's "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End” after "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest” earned more than $1 billion, making it the third-largest-grossing movie of all time. He received his first Academy Award® nomination, as well as a Golden Globe® Award nomination, a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Award nomination and a Screen Actors Guild Award® for his portrayal of Sparrow in "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.” Depp received his second Academy Award® nomination, as well as a Golden Globe Award nomination, Screen Actors Guild nomination and BAFTA nomination for his role as J.M. Barrie in Marc Forster's "Finding Neverland,” in which he starred opposite Kate Winslet and Freddie Highmore. In 2004, Depp starred in "The Libertine” as 17th century womanizing poet John Wilmot, the Earl of Rochester.

In 2005, Depp collaborated with Tim Burton on "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” for which he received a Golden Globe® Award nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical, and "Corpse Bride,” which received an Academy Award® nomination for Best Animated Film in 2006. In 2008, Depp received his third Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” winning a Golden Globe Award for the role.

More recently, Depp has starred as real-life criminal John Dillinger opposite Christian Bale and Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard in Michael Mann's "Public Enemies,” as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland,” for which he received a Golden Globe Award® nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy or Musical, and voicing the title role of Gore Verbinski's critically acclaimed "Rango.” He will also soon be seen in Bruce Robinson's "The Rum Diary” and is currently gearing up to start filming "Dark Shadows” with Tim Burton, both of which are produced by his company, Infinitum Nihil.

Other screen credits include Florian Henckel Von Donnersmarck's "The Tourist,” 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 Hallstrom's "Chocolat,” Julian Schnabel's "Before Night Falls,” Sally Potter's "The Man Who Cried,” Burton's "Sleepy Hollow,” Roman Polanski's "The Ninth Gate,” Terry Gilliam's "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,” Mike Newell's "Donnie Brasco” with Al Pacino, Jim Jarmusch's "Dead Man” and Jeremy Leven's "Don Juan DeMarco,” in which he starred opposite Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway, as well as Lasse Hallstrom's "What's Eating Gilbert Grape,” Emir Kusturica's "Arizona Dream” and John Badham's "Nick of Time.”
