Top 10 Movies Starring Johnny Depp 0

Posted on June 25, 2019 by John Harris

Johnny Depp has been among the world’s most famous actors for decades. He started off as an anonymous guitarist and worked his way up to some of Hollywood’s most successful blockbusters. He is not just a handsome guy that has never left his grunge phase but an actual artist who has managed to prove his talent multiple times. 

Just remember a vast number of Tim Burton’s movies he has starred in. Fun fact: he was once asked during an interview if he watched his own movies. When he said no, the interviewer responded: “You must have seen few Burton’s movies.”

This drama movie from 2004 tells a story of a successful playwright James M. Barrie (Johnny Depp) and how the story of Peter Pan came to be. The movie is situated in the 20th century London, where Barrie meets a single mother (Kate Winslet) and her four sons.

After waiting for more than 30 years, he is finally earning his rightful place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of the 2021 Hall of Fame Class.

      During his decade with the Dallas Cowboys, Drew Pearson had a habit of making the big catch at the right moment to help the Cowboys time and again snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

      The favorite target of Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach, Pearson was widely recognized as one of the great receivers of his era. Though at the time of his retirement many expected Pearson to easily breeze into the Hall of Fame, his enshrinement was derailed by changes to the game which artificially inflated receiver stats and made the numbers he produced during a time when wide receivers weren’t catching 100 passes a season seem inferior.
