The latest Johnny Depp offering, “The Lone Ranger,” made its debut this week, so we asked readers what they would pick as Depp’s best role. The responses offer a trip through Depp’s 30-year film career:

I’ve never seen a Johnny Depp movie I didn’t like, but I love Jack Sparrow. He’s hilarious.

Kim Annette K

Edward Scissorhands. He made the character brilliantly fragile and beautiful in his honesty. He was who he was, and it wasn’t him that had trouble accepting that. It was everyone else.

Rikki Hill

Pirates. But I love Benny & Joon too!

Jessica Rising

I have to say, it’s a hard choice, but he rocked the Mad Hatter, methinks!

Eric Scott

Ed Wood

Darla Klausner

Secret Window

Brandi Strantz

Donnie Brasco!

Shannon Bahr Allert

He was fun to watch in 21 Jump Street … but fell in love with him in Benny & Joon

Brenda Axmaker

Nightmare on Elm Street was my first horror movie & Depp’s death will forever be in my nightmares. But I really love Nick of Time, which adds another favorite weirdo, Christopher Walken. Depp is just a sexier looking weirdo.

Kristina Bremer-Heth

Don Juan Demarco and Edward Scissorhands! Oh and anything else he has been in….

Sharon Sauve Givens

Too hard to choose!!! Loved Ed Wood, Edward Scissorhands and Donnie Brasco too-but also Sleep Hollow and Sweeney Todd!

From Huckleberries Online blog:

Randy Myers

Captain Jack Sparrow. He makes over the top fun yet still keeps his character’s dramatic side relevant


Hunter S. Thompson: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Arch Druid

Barnabas Collins, “Dark Shadows.”
