    Johnny Depp Wants to Be an Old Lady

    When you're as awesome as Johnny Depp, you can pretty much do—or be—anything you want.

    After a pirate, John Dillinger, Willy Wonka, Ichabod Crane, Sweeney Todd and a surfer dude on SpongeBob SquarePants, what else is there?

    The steamy actor points out several new frontiers for himself in an interview in the U.K.'s Mirror.

    "My dream role would be to play music legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life," he said. "I love her, I really do. She's amazing. With all the digital technology these days, I could probably pull it off."

    The Tony Award winner is 88 years old!

    He jumps even further off the deep end when he adds, "I'd have a go at playing a 12-year-old girl if they asked me to."

    Hmm...We're not so sure we want to see that. Do you? Or would you rather him stick to typical (if you could call it that) Tim Burton fare like Alice in Wonderland?
