Johnny Depp Can Be Jack Sparrow At A Moment's Notice


Everyone loves Captain Jack Sparrow, the eyeliner-clad swashbuckler from Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean" series. Johnny Depp, who has depicted the character since 2003, revealed a surprising fact about his relationship with Captain Jack.

While promoting his newest movie, "The Lone Ranger" (in theaters on July 3), Depp told E! Online that he often travels with the famous pirate costume, but Johnny's hunting for a different kind of treasure.

While on the road, Depp revealed that he often makes impromptu visits to children's hospitals dressed as Captain Jack. "I'll just sneak in and go and surprise a bunch of kiddies through the different wards," Depp explained. "It basically turns into a two-, three-hour improvisation and it's really fun. So I travel with Captain Jack."

What a sweetie!

Johnny Depp is in talks to reprise his role in the unnamed fifth installment of the popular series with producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Until then, Jack Sparrow will be making house calls.
