Johnny Depp's diverse roles, through the years.

Versatility, thy name is Johnny Depp. It is amazing when you realize the vast variety of roles Johnny Depp has donned - from romantic to wacky to scary to intense - he's been there and done it all.

By the way, there should be a 'Captain' up there somewhere in that image.
