Johnny Depp is one of my absolute favorite Hollywood actors of all time, especially when he plays a gangster.
He won my heart
and money when he starred in the “Hollyhood” blockbuster, “Blow” –a biopic about the American cocaine smuggler George Jung.
I was more than excited to hear he was back on the gangster scene with his portrayal of Irish crime boss Whitey Bulger.
“Black Mass” will be in theaters in the fall, and I have already prepared a safe place for the DVD deep within my bountiful gangster flick collection.
Right next to “Blow”…
Peep the trailer below!
Johnny Depp is famous for taking on roles that require some serious transformations, but decades into his career, it’s still a shock to see him as Boston crime boss Whitey Bulger in the trailer for Black Mass. The actor is nearly unrecognizable in the somewhat unconventional trailer, which mostly consists of one derailed dinner party scene to convey just how creepy and threatening Bulger, a convicted murder currently in prison, could be.
Black Mass, which also stars Kevin Bacon and Benedict Cumberbatch, hits theaters Sept. 18.
