Johnny DeppLondon, Oct 19 (IANS) Director Tim Burton describes the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star Johnny Depp as Hollywood’s greatest ever eccentric. The British filmmaker is working with the Hollywood heartthrob for the fourth time in the remake of the classic kid’s tale “Alice in Wonderland” and reckons that Depp is living up to his character name as The Mad Hatter.

Thesun.co.uk reports Burton saying: “Nobody plays oddballs better than Johnny and he’s loving playing this one. He doesn’t like to be the same way twice. That’s good, he always keeps it fresh and all. He likes the material we have here and he gets it.”

Depp’s infamously unusual roles include performances in “Edward Scissorhands” and “Sweeney Todd”.
