So I was making my usual movie blog rounds today, and I came across this post on Hollywood Elsewhere about a 17-minute preview of Sweeney Todd Jeff Wells caught, and the first thing that struck me about the picture he had of Sweeney Todd was that Johnny Depp looks like a younger version of Jim Carrey's Count Olaf in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. Seriously ... look at the pictures.

Now, I'm a Johnny Depp girl, I must confess. He's been tops on my personal "yum" list since his 21 Jump Street Days (yeah, dating myself a little there). I've loved Depp in just about everything he's been in, and he's almost always sexy, even when he dresses in one of his more, er, unusual get-ups. But this pic of him in Sweeney Todd, he looks a little scary. The first thing I thought when I saw it was, "Ewww, he looks like Jim Carrey in that Lemony Snicket movie." So I messaged Scott Weinberg, and said, "Scott! Look at this picture! Doesn't Johnny Depp look just like Jim Carrey in that Lemony Snicket movie?" And he messaged back, "Uh, no." and then changed the subject. So I messaged one of my girlfriends and asked her the same thing, and she LOL'd and said "Totally!"

What do you think? Do you think Sweeney Todd looks like a young Count Olaf? And who's sexier in their makeup, Depp or Carrey?
