Gangemi Q&A #2

Unread postby Liz » Tue Mar 07, 2006 10:11 am

2. Have you had an opportunity to sit down with Johnny and talk about Inamorata? Did he tell you what attracted him to your story? Are you able to share any of your conversation(s) with us? Will he be playing a cameo?

Gangemi: Yes, I did meet with JD this summer. It was the day before he had his handprints put in cement at Mann's Chinese Theater. We didn't spend much time talking about the book/movie (I seem to recall us spending most of the time talking about the history of electroshock therapy) but I know there's some conversation about him playing one of the smaller "cameo" parts if time and schedule permit. I'll leave it to your readers to play the guessing game of what that cameo will be!


:-O

Wow - I can't imagine how convoluted a conversation with Johnny must get! ECT??

It's been a while since I read the book, but is Walter the first husband? - 'cause that would be my vote!

Lumi, Walter was the "ghost" of Mina's brother, Ernst was the first husband. I think either of those roles would be bigger than a cameo, but I would love to see him play either! :bounce:

Thanks, DITHOT! Yes, either of those roles would be fun, but I think I'd go with Ernst, because we never really get to see Walter.

I would like it to be Walter. It's not a real big part. It could be considered a cameo, right? :please: On the other hand, we don't see Walter. So maybe someone like Ernst Stanlowe would be better. But that part might be too big to be considered a cameo. :-?

I don't have my book with me, and I don't remember his name, but how about the newspaper guy that Finch talked to -- the one who wrote the story about Mina?

That could be a lot of fun for Johnny -- he could be one of the paparazzi!

I'd LOVE it to be Walter. If it is, it would be his voice mostly or maybe only. That would be cool! :-O
Depp: It's true. I don't sing along to music.
Q: "Brown Sugar" comes on …
Depp: I might sing a little harmony. I might air guitar. Drumming. I like to drum.

You guys have come up with some good guesses… I'll put my bet on the ventriloquist. I would love to see him play one of the less eccentric roles like the bootlegger’s attorney—C. Stuart Patterson—he was such a creature of his time… very jazz age. I also like the irony of a muckraking journalist. But he would definitely be great as Walter.

My first thought was Walter too. :bounce: I really hope so..I guess they could alter the book a little, so we could see him..maybe at the end..That would be a twist...db...I like the idea of the attorney too.He made quite an impact. :cool: ..He could always play the Crawley's servant..[I can never remember his name :-O ].
Life is beautiful.

I have faith in you.
