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 agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.

    Why is there so much complaining about a fun movie bracket that nobody can truly say one movie is better. It's all subjective just cause your movie that nobody saw didn't win don't whine about it inform your friends make them watch it remember this is all for fun
