Caught between a frenzy of flashbulbs and screaming fans, "The Rum Diary" star Johnny Depp said he was thrilled about the project. "You know, for me, this has been a very long, long road that I started with my friend, Hunter."
The actor spoke about fulfilling Thompson's desire for the film to be completed, and said, "Unfortunately, Hunter's not here tonight... well, he is here, but he's not physically here... and yeah, for me, it's closure."
Busy actor Johnny Depp opened up to "Extra's" Mario Lopez about his new film, "Rum Diary," the making of another "Pirates of the Caribbean," and his role in "The Lone Ranger."
Johnny, who has starred in four "Pirates" movies as Jack Sparrow, said, "I love playing the character. I would keep making them as long as the screenplays are good, and as long as people want to see them."
After weeks of auditions of thousands, 162 acts became just 32. Four categories of contestants; boys, girls, "over 30s," and groups will be mentored by Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, LA Reid and Nicole Scherzinger.
