Johnny Depp, singer? In the upcoming horror musical Sweeney Todd, you better believe it. The Deppster has never sung before, but when eccentric filmmaker buddy Tim Burton enlisted him once again to play the starring role in his film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim favorite, he decided to give it a go.
In this clip provided by Paramount Pictures to Bloody Disgusting today, Depp croons a bit of "Johanna", one of the songs written for the stage musical by Sondheim--also known for such musicals as Sunday in the Park with George, A Little Night Music, Into the Woods and West Side story (lyrics only) and for composing such standards as "Send in the Clowns", "Everything's Coming Up Roses", "Comedy Tonight" and "Let Me Entertain You."
What, I can't like horror movies and showtunes...?
