Page 2 - Johnny Depp Goes Blonde For 'Mortdecai' Art Dealer Role [Pictures]
Who Is Charlie Mortdecai?
Though the character appears to be somewhat neater than most of the characters the Pirates of the Caribbean actor traditionally plays, Bonfiglioli's Mortdecai is clearly the kind of eccentric role that Depp revels in. It is not known whether Depp sprouted the striking bleached facial hair himself, or whether it is an elaborately crafted prop, à la Poirot.
Depp Is Almost Unrecognisable As The Art Dealer.
The character is described as "portly," "dissolute" and "immoral" by the late author and although it doesn't looks like Depp has been hitting the cream buns for the role, he is adept at playing a believable felon.
In the David Kroepp-directed movie, Depp plays amongst an all-star cast, including Ewan McGregor, Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul Bettany and Olivia Munn in roles that are yet to be verified.
