If there's ever a motion picture produced about the life of Broadway musical theater star Carol Channing, eternally cool actor Johnny Depp would very much like to be considered for the lead role. How perfectly deranged would that be? In an interview with the Mirror in UK, Depp strayed off the topic of Public Enemies to reveal his burning passion for Channing, who is now 88 years old: "My dream role would be to play musical legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life. I love her, I really do. With all the digital technology available these days I could probably pull it off." But who needs special effects? This the guy who brilliantly nailed such disparate roles as Hunter S. Thompson and Ed Wood. Red lipstick and a little tuck is all would take. Still, Depp may need a little post-production help to pull off his other weird fantasy role: "I'd have a go at playing a 12-year-old girl if they asked me to." Uh, that's where he loses us. But for fun, here's Channing's wacky cameo in Alice in Wonderland; coincidentally, Depp is playing the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's forthcoming 3-D adaptation of the Lewis Carroll novel.
