First Look At Johnny Depp As Whitey Bulger In Black Mass

Johnny Depp is popular among the “just-released set photos” this week. Yesterday, he was shown in his pirate garb for a fifth (yawn) Pirates of the Caribbean film. This time, however, he appears in the first still from a much more interesting project, playing White Bulger in the Scott Cooper film Black Mass.

Depp, sporting some thinning hair, a hefty midsection, and a dangerous firearm, plays Bulger, a vicious mobster turned FBI informant in Boston. Here is the first shot of Johnny Depp in action in Black Mass, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly:



Seeing Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger in a film like Black Mass is much more exciting, at least to me. We will see what comes of it. Black Mass opens September 18.
