Johnny Depp reached out to
imprisoned James “ Whitey ” Bulger
to set up a meeting as he prepared
to portray the notorious gangster
in a new biopic Black Mass, but
the actor’s request was “respectfully
The movie star reveals he had
hoped to speak to Bulger in person
as part of his research for the film,
which was adapted from Dick Lehr
and Gerry O’Neill’s bestselling
2001 book Black Mass: The True
Story of an Unholy Alliance
Between the FBI and the Irish
Mob, but the Boston crime boss
was not interested.
Speaking to reporters at the
Venice Film Festival in Italy on
Friday, Depp admitted: “I don’t
believe he was a great fan of the
book (the film is based on).”
However, Depp was able
to get the thumbs up for his
performance from one of Bulger’s
close associates after his lawyer, J
W Carney Jr, stopped by the set
of director Scott Cooper’s crime
drama twice during filming.
The actor claims Carney Jr was
impressed with the accuracy of
Depp’s portrayal, adding, “(He) said
he could feel his old friend in what
I was doing.”
Discussing his character, Depp
continued: “ With a character like
James Bulger, I think you have
to approach him just as a human
being. Nobody wakes up in the
morning and shaves or brushes
their teeth and looks in the mirror
and thinks, ‘I’m evil’.
“He was complicated ... He would
take in little old ladies’ groceries
into the house, and then 10
minutes later he might be bashing
someone’s skull in.”
Bulger, now 86, went on the
run from authorities in 1995 and
became one of America’s most-
wanted fugitives. He was finally
captured 16 years later in California
in 2011, and is currently serving life
in prison after he was indicted for
Black Mass received raved reviews
from critics when it was screened
in Venice last week, ahead of its
evening premiere, with reporters
tipping Depp as an early contender
for the best actor Oscar at next
Gangster Bulger declined Depp meeting
The choice was shrouded in
mystery and denials, but British
singing sensation Sam Smith has
surfaced as the theme song singer
for the new James Bond film,
He had denied the rumours, but
came clean overnight, tweeting
that taking part in the Bond film
was “one of the highlights of my
The 23-year-old who has shot
to stardom said he is excited to be
part of the film.
Only last week, Smith had denied
any part in the new 007 caper,
which opens in October starring
Daniel Craig as the durable secret
agent first played by Sean Connery.
The track was recorded in January
but kept secret until now. Smith
said he wrote the song in 20
minutes after reading the script.
