when i first heard that depp would be playing barnabas collins in the big screen remake of dark shadows, i had reservations. but then i remembered that i also had the same reservations about michael keaton playing batman. as it turned out, keaton was a brilliant bit of casting. so, i no doubt feel that depp just might pull it off. but will he be sporting the trademark bangs that the original barnabas, jonathan frid,wore?

Depp will not emulate any other Barnabus, I know that, as much as he loved the original Dark Shadows, he always creates his own unique characters. I can't wait to see his Barnabus. I try to imagine.
I know he'll be dangerous, beautiful and scary. He'll be sophisticated and forceful. I wonder what combination of characters he knows or imagines to come up with his Barnabus.
I really think Johnny will break the box office with this movie and will beat his own Captain Jack records. I think he'll have a blast with Burton doing this show from his heart and we'll all benefit and any doubters will become believers.
He said the Disney execs thought he'd "ruin" Pirates, HA. Without him, it would have been a mediocre kid's movie that barely made it a weekend or two.
Johnny is the most talented actor of the past decade.
I was looking forward to JD playing Barnabas Collins.. thought he would really capture the character but the makeup looks overdone and obvious...really disappointing so far.
I LOVED the movie its sorta like a romantic comedy but I have to admit its the best movie EVER
Depp should do very well I would be more concerned with the supporting cast. Angelic, Willie and the Dr. Julie
I think Johnny will do fine. Remember the personalities of vampires have evolved since the portrayals of the 60's. Johnny plays tortured soul very well. Having seen the series when it aired and the movies, also a HUGE fan,Barnabas was a tortured soul. He was conflicted with the urges of his curse and the longing of wanting to be human again. I personally can't wait to see the film. I also think Johnny will research and consult with Jonathan Frid about the role/persona of Barnabas. I hope they don't ruin this movie for the many, many fans who dealry love this series. I am being optimistic.
