Johnny Depp Likes Green Eggs & Ham: Star to play Dr. Seuss in Film
Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp could be portraying beloved children's book author Dr. Seuss (real name Theodore Geisel) in an upcoming bio-pic based on the writer's life. Depp has always been known for his choice in quirky, off-beat roles and has played a children's book author before, (Peter Pan writer J.M. Barrie in the Oscar-nominated Finding Neverland), not to mention his turn in Willie Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. The gifted actor currently has a full plate playing tortured vampire Barnabas Collins in Tim Burton's revival of the supernatural 60s Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows as well as publicizing The Rum Diary. We look forward to seeing all of his performances.
