I donīt know the soap Dark Shadow. In Germany this soap is not a classic and I donīt mean, that this soap is amiss.No,I donīt mean Johnny is a poor actor!! You know my opinion about him!!!!
And I mean, that interview with a vampire donīt harmed their careers(Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Antonio Banderas). Maybe, I misunderstood a post before. My english isnīt the best, I wrote it. In school we learned poor only means= no money.
Peace

Your English is better than my German - LOL! At least you give it a try. BTW: Dark Shadows ran in the US (each afternoon) from 1966-1971. It is considered camp by some and simply a fun childhood memory by others. It has been considered a cult classic for years and has a large, active fan base to this day - complete with a yearly festival/convention featuring many of the surviving actors. In spite of what now seems like ancient production techniques and all its bloopers and blunders (hey, this was LIVE TV and that is never without problems) I adore this show and I'm proud to say I was among the many kids who "ran home from school" to watch it.

I was also one of those kids and was in love with Barnabus Collins.:)

found this on Johnny Depp Web :)

Burton, August & Depp Reteam on Dark Shadows

IESB.net has learned, via an interview with director Peter Segal, that the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and “Corpse Bride” team of Tim Burton, John August and Johnny Depp are reuniting for Dark Shadows.

Burton will reportedly direct the Warner Bros. feature based on the ’60s supernatural TV show from a script by August. Johnny Depp’s Infinitum-Nihil and GK Films are producing and Depp has had interest in playing Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series, but that hasn’t been confirmed.

Over 1,225 episodes,“Dark Shadows” was a highly atmospheric, spooky soap that featured gothic horror staples like vampires, monsters, witches, werewolves, ghosts and zombies.

"Dark Shadows" was a soap on tv back in the early 70's - wonderful show! Very gothic and romantic. Barnabas Collins was the vampire and a very sexy one at that! Johnny is perfect with those piercing brown eyes of his. This picture will definitely be a hit!

Well, kind of...it will be a movie based on the old Soap. Thing is; if Dark Shadows was anything, it was a non-conventional Soap. And, don't think Passions either...except for a few supernatural elements, they do not compare.

And yes, I agree whole heartedly - with those brown eyes and sensual mouth, Johnny is a natural for the kind of sad, soulful, sexy vampire that was/is Barnabas Collins. I honestly could not think of anyone better!

Hiya BeeCee..good to see ya again!! And yes,,Johnny would make the PURRRRRRfect Barnabus Collins. The camera will focus on Johnny's eyes quite often. That is how vamp's back in the 70's hynotised their victims. Johnny hynotises me every time I look into those BIG brown beauties!!! YOWSA!!!

Hi there Betty! Is that your real name? I only ask because "Betty Sue" is Johnny's mothers name. And I thought maybe you based your decision to use the name "BETTY" in her honor. VERY cool name by the way..Welcome to our group..CAPT JACK'S BLACK PEARL DEPP-UTIES! We all would love to be Johnny's Angelic..:)

To the other group members: what do ya think of the name I came up with ladies?
