Johnny Depp's Dream Role is Hamlet


Johnny Depp


The actor says he was urged by Marlon Brando to portray the character from William Shakespeare tragedy before he is too old.

Johnny Depp is determined to tackle Hamlet before he's "too old" for the role - because late Hollywood veteran Marlon Brando wanted him to star in the William Shakespeare tragedy. The "Pirates of the Caribbean" hunk reveals a meeting with the late Brando inspired him to study Shakespeare so he could play the Danish prince - and Depp is hoping to realize his dream in the future.

He tells Vanity Fair magazine, "(Marlon Brando said) 'Why don't you just take a year and go and study Shakespeare, or go and study Hamlet? Go and work on Hamlet and play that part. Play that part before you're too old'."

"So what he was trying to tell me was: play that f**king part, man. Play that part before you're too long in the tooth. Play it. And I would like to. I'd really, really like to."
