Top Ten Johnny Depp Characters

Sure, he has had quite a lot of success and has been lucky to have starred in some very good movies but which role has he played the best? What character of his has made the most impact in his career?

The Top Ten

1 Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean

my friend's told me about pirates of the Caribbean. it was my very first johnny depp movie ever and I loved it. johnny depp was so funny as captain jack sparrow. I think he is the only one who could be so good at this part.

Awesome character! I saw Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl yesterday and I loved the movie! And CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow is one of the best movie characters ever.

Have you noticed that certain way he has of walking while in this character? Definition of AWESOME

Great movie series, it wouldn't be complete without Jack. He's hilarious, I love him

2 Edward Scissorhands in Edward Scissorhands

Such a beautiful character. So innocent like a puppy with his big brown eyes. So naive like a little child. To just wanna hug him

I love Edward so much

He was so cute

Come on his innocense and beauty in this movie more than make this his best character!
But I guess if a character had to beat this is should be Jack Sparrow.

3 Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

his willy Wonka was so crazy and so funny I have seen it about 200 time's no kidding

Really, for me it's a tie between the Mad Hatter and Willy Wonka. He plays them so well, and I love those more...pleasantly eccentric...characters.

He Did Pretty Damn Good As Willy Wonka

Literally probably the wackiest nutball and I LOVE IT! Wonka is such a unique and interesting character to portray especially side he is such a little cinnamon roll with a faboo haircut. Honestly, you can't anymore inventive and fun and just overall great from a Johnny Depp character.

4 Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland

he was a crazy hatter more then a mad hatter he made this part his own and it was great

He should've been the main character in the movie! He was almost never on screen but the time he was, it was great!

I love him so much!

Nicely Done Depp!

5 Sweeny Todd in Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Sweeney Todd is by far one of the greatest movies ever made the fact that Johnny Depp is in it is a massive bonus as he is an immense actor and plays ever role fantastically I definitely think that Sweeney Todd is the best role he has played but an exception is made for Pirates Of The Caribbean as that was an amazing movie and he did fantastically in that also those are his top two in my opinion

Is the greatest performance of ever

It's spelled Sweeney Todd.

WOW! that all I can say he was amazing!

6 Ichabod Crane in Sleepy Hollow

I love sleepy hollow it is brilliant movie ichabod is cute best movie ever

I think johnny depp is the best Ichabod crane ever.

7 Gilbert Grape in What's Eating Gilbert Grape

such a good movie it's sad it's funny it's really good if you have not seen it go see it now.

The Best
I wonder why this movie is underrated :/

8 J. M. Barrie in Finding Neverland
9 Rango in Rango
10 Charlie Mortdecai In Mortdecai

Hillarious knows how to pull it off every time should be second behind jack

The Contenders

11 Wade "Cry-Baby" Walker in Cry Baby

such a crazy movie and I would so have sex with cry baby

12 Guy Lapointe in Tusk
13 Johnny Depp in Jack and Jill

A pretty easy role to play, but still awesome!

14 Raoul Duke in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Johnny Depp is outstanding in this film. Hilarious as well

One of his best movies

15 James "Whitey" Bulger in Black Mass
16 Victor Van Dort in Corpse Bride

my mom and I watch this movie every Halloween. is a really good movie

17 Donnie Brasco / Joe Pistone in Donnie Brasco

he was such a bad ass in Donnie brasco I loved it and the story is a real life story to

Simply one of my favorite movies. Great. I memorize a lot of the lines. Fuhggettaboutit. Awesome. Such a great movie. Based on a true story, in case you didn't know that.

18 Sam in Benny and Joon

he is so good and so funny in this movie

Yes. Yes. YES.

19 Tom Hanson in 21 Jump Street
20 Mort Rainey in Secret Window

I love this movie he was so good in it

21 George Jung in Blow
22 Glen Lantz in Nightmare On Elm Street

His first movie! Come on people. Amazing job for a first time, there, Johnny

23 Roux in Chocolat
24 Don Juan in Don Juan DeMarco

so sexy if could have sex with johnny depp it would be don juan DeMarco. hand's down

No action, no suspense, just a fine movie that's pure romance, with some delightful, subtle comedy thrown in. And what makes Don Juan Demarco so good is Johnny Depp's sensitive portrayal of a deluded (? ) young man -- or is he? His co-stars are two of the great Hollywood names -- Marlon Brando and Faye Dunaway -- but Depp outshines them both. Yes, it's a chick flick, but it's by far one of the best!

25 Tonto in The Lone Ranger Tonto is a fictional character, the either Potawatomi or Comanche companion of the Lone Ranger, a popular American Western character.
