Whether he’s the goofball pirate, Jack Sparrow, or the cold-blooded killer Whitey Bulger, Johnny Depp is one of Hollywood’s most versatile leading men. But it’s his portrayal of Donnie Brasco, an undercover FBI man in the gangster movie of the same name, that won him kudos from critics and became his first big screen hit. Of course, it didn’t hurt that his co-star was Al Pacino! “Donnie Brasco” is based on a real FBI agent who infiltrated one of New York’s most ruthless Mafia crime families. “The Real Story of: Donnie Brasco” shows just how close Depp’s performance was to the actual crime fighter.
