Johnny Depp at 50 - in pictures and music
12. Sweeney Todd
Johnny Depp was brilliant as the all-singing, all-murdering demon barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd, in the movie of the classic Stephen Sondheim musical. Depp’s intense performance won him a Golden Globe for Best Actor, and an Academy Award nomination. Word is that he will now be joining Meryl Streep and James Cordon in James ‘Chicago’ Marshall’s forthcoming movie version of Sondheim’s Into the Woods. The role? The ravenous wolf who pursues Little Red Riding Hood.
