Depp the Vampire?

Is it too good to be true? After worrying that it is Will Smith to star in I am Legend, could Johnny Depp be fulfilling a role many believe he was born to play? Is Johnny Depp to be a vampire?

According to Cinematical he might be. The details are scant, but I assume that he will play the Ben Cortman character from the book, though that is not explicitly stated. If he does play Cortman then I still would love to see Depp in a more traditionally vampiric role, but one step at a time. More details as they are forthcoming.

Yeah, good news, but still... Will Smith. He's going to ruin Legend the way he ruined Robot!

Well, I can't disagree with the consensus. I sit and hope that he can shock us all... but that hope is scant and fleeting...

Still, Depp yeah!

It has been brought to my attention that the fact that I have deleted a comment on this thread might be construed as me deleting an opinion I disagree with. I will state here and now that I am 100% in favour of debate and have no desire to delete any comment on this blog just because I do not share the same opinion as the poster – I value the comments, and the fact that people are willing to comment, too much.

The post in question contained links to pornographic sites and I considered it spam of the first order and any other such “comments” which contain pornography or links to such will be deleted.

I will also delete any comment I believe to be discriminatory.

Thank you for your attention – “the management”

Personally, I think Will Smith is an okay actor, a bit softcore, but okay. However, he's no vampire. Maybe a disney vampire. :)
Depp would make an awesome vampire, always thought so.

Duvy, Smith is playing the human character and, as the last man on earth, he'll spend a huge amount of the film on his own as the key character. It is not to have a go at Will Smith, but I have never seen a performance by him that has convinced me that he has the presence or the gravitas to pull the role off.

On the other hand, Depp + vampire = cool
