Hollywood star reveals his secret ambition to star as famous singer Carol Channing


Johnny Depp wants to use the latest movie gadgetry to help him take on a female role.

The 46-year-old is keen to be transformed into veteran silver screen singer and actress Carol Channing, 88.

‘My dream role would be to play musical legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life,’ he tells the Daily Mirror. ‘I love her, I really do, she’s amazing. With all the digital technology these days, I could probably pull it off!’

Johnny starred as a weirdo with metal fingers in Edward Scissorhands, an eccentic candy magnate in Charlie And The Chocolate Factory and a camp buccaneer in Pirates Of The Caribbean, but he hasn’t played a girl – yet.
