Johnny DeppThere's a fascinating review in today's Guardian of Johnny Depp's performance on England's Radio 2, for whom he hosts a James Dean feature tonight. What's so interesting about the article is that it is based entirely on Depp's voice, an aspect of his acting that doesn't always get much attention. Though the writer has great regard for what he calls Depp's "vocal range," he nevertheless is bothered by the actor's decision to do the Dean piece "as himself," a delivery he describes as "a low Kentucky mumble."

While the poor review is as much for Radio 2's misguided effort to change its image by casting a Hollywood star as it is for Depp's work, it's well worth a read for the new perspective it provides.
