Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter Pic

So apparently this is what Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's new "Alice in Wonderland" is going to look like. I cannot tell if this is a picture of him or if it is a drawing. I'd say drawing but Tim Burton's concept drawings do not look like this.

I actually like this picture. I'm intrigued by it. But I'm more interested in how he is going to play it.

My thoughts on the new "Alice in Wonderland" are as follows. I'm very excited and very interested in this project but I think it's a little too obvious. For years people have been saying Tim Burton would make a great "Alice in Wonderland" and while they are prbably right, this whole thing just seems to be a bit obvious and typical of him. I'd like to see him go out of his comfort zone a bit more soon. Also I already anticipate the Hot Topic crowd jumping on all sorts of merchandise involving the movie which I'm sure will become annoying quite quickly. But I love this cast so far. Several genius choices in the mix, particularly Michael Sheen as the Cheshire Cat.
