Hunter S Thompson and Johnny Depp back in the day

As you all know Johnny Depp is filming an adaption of Hunter S Thompson's The Rum Diary.

Depp also starred in the excellent adaption of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas that Terry Gilliam directed.

Pam sent me these great photos of Depp and the father of Gonzo journalism at a signing during the time of the film's release. Great photos.

It is amazing the likeness that Johnny Depp was able to muster from living and studying HST for so long. Some of his best work.

As for Hunter...

"One of god's very own prototypes; too weird to live, to rare to die."

"We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine and a whole multicolored collection of uppers, downers, laughers, screamers . . . Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can. The only thing that really worried me was the ether. There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge and I knew we'd get into that rotten stuff pretty soon . . ." HST Fear & Loathing...
Say no more...

Even if he’s shortened the length of his hair, fans still consider him a sex symbol, and can’t wait to see him on the big screen. I read at Project Weight Loss what’s his youth secret. This hot actor is on the right track. He says having a healthy life is what keeps him young.
