Johnny Depp May Be Retiring From Acting Sooner Than Later

Johnny Depp has spent the better part of his life captivating audiences with his immense talent and leaving fans in awe in his wake. He has shined in such dramatic roles such as "Donnie Brasco", "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" and "Ed Wood". He has dabbled with a vestment of colorful and memorable characters as seen in "Cry-Baby", "Edward Scissorhands", and more recently "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Alice in Wonderland". No matter what role Depp takes on, he fully commits and completely takes command of the screen.

For the last few months, Depp has teased fans that his retirement may not be too far away. This sad truth came up again in a recent interview, where he stated while it would not happen overnight, it's "probably not too far away". Let's table this conversation Depp, we are certainly not done watching you shine on the silver screen.

He will be reprising his role again as Captain Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of the Caribbean 5" and it seems probable he will also be returning as the Mad Hatter in the "Alice in Wonderland" sequel. A man of Depp's caliber has every right to explore more dramatic and eccentric characters, but I'm really looking forward to seeing him embrace more serious and less physically transformative roles again, in "Mortadecai" and Wally Pfister's directorial debut "Transcendence".

Do you think Depp is really going to throw in the towel? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Transcendence" will hit AMC Theatres on April 25, 2014.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
