You will have to look hard to see this as Johnny Depp, even harder to realize he is playing gangster James “Whitey” Bulger. When the
I was mistaken, it seems the director wanted someone that could play an insane-murderer, but look like a great father and neighborhood hero. Enter Johnny Depp. I for one couldn’t believe he would even take the part, but then again he played the lead in “Blow” so okay I can live with that. I have to wonder if they will have him playing the younger Bulger in the movie.
