Johnny Depp

Hmmm...wonder if the Who that Horton is hearing is talking about this?

While a certain cat may only wear one hat, Johnny Depp has donned quite a few over the years playing a wide range of roles, and his latest possible performance has us so excited that we'd be willing to eat green eggs and ham just to see it.

Depp is developing and producing a live-action biopic about the life of whimsical author Dr. Seuss (aka Theodor Geisel), per The Hollywood Reporter. What's more, the versatile actor is also contemplating taking on the part of the writer himself.

Of course, the star is no stranger to films relating to children's books, having played the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland, Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory as well as Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie in Finding Neverland.

While this latest project will most likely not rely too heavily on CGI, it still may feature a little animation. 

Let's hope so. Such a thing would make our hearts grow three sizes for sure.
