Depp To Star As Pee-wee Herman?
JOHNNY DEPP is considering an offer to star in two forthcoming PEE-WEE HERMAN movies, playing the legendary kids' character. Paul Reubens, who played Pee-Wee in TV shows and films until 1990, has completed two scripts he hopes to bring to the big screen in 2009. Reubens hopes to reprise the role himself, but admits he has also spoken to his Blow co-star Depp about taking on the part. Reubens tells MTV, "(He said) Let me think about it." Besides appearing together in Blow, the two actors are also linked through director Tim Burton - one of regular Depp-collaborator Burton's first films was 1985's Pee-Wee Herman's Big Adventure.
