Posted on June 10, 2014

Is Johnny Depp capable of acting without the use of extensive costuming and makeup?

From a costuming perspective, this is all really well done and recreates a period of time while establishing the character (Whitey Bulger), right down to his Alcatraz belt buckle. But we’re sorry, his face looks freakish. He probably has to spend hours in a makeup chair to turn him into a blond, blue-eyed man, which of course forces the question of why they didn’t just cast a blond, blue-eyed actor in the role. Without doing a scientific study or anything, we’re going to go out on a limb and suggest that blond, blue-eyed actors are not exactly hard to find in Hollywood.
