2009: Another Thing To Live For

depppublic-enemies_dlIn my New Year’s greeting two items below, I listed a few things I’m looking forward to in 2009. Here’s an addition: Johnny Depp (pictured) playing John Dillinger in the summer movie “Public Enemies.” EW.com elaborates: “You could say being an outlaw runs in Johnny Depp’s blood. After all, his grandfather ran moonshine on the back roads of Kentucky during Prohibition. So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that the actor jumped at the chance to play John Dillinger in Public Enemies. ”Dillinger was one of those guys, like Charlie Chaplin and Evel Knievel, that I was fascinated with at a young age,’ says Depp. ”And because of my grandfather, the character was pretty easy for me to connect to. In a way, this movie was a salute to him.'”
