Johnny Depp has played his share of real-life people. He is starring as
former Boston gangster Whitey Bulger in the upcoming crime drama "Black
Mass" (due out next year). And in the past he's been the cinematic alter
ego of low-budget '50s filmmaker Ed Wood, FBI agent Joseph D. Pistone
(in "Donnie Brasco"), and gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson -- whom
Depp has played twice now.
