When you think Johnny Depp, a lot of things come to mind. Cap'n Jack Sparrow. Willy Wonka. Edward Scissorhands. Winona Ryder. Amber Heard. A rogueish smile. Those eyes. Chocolat. A mangled grin. A paunch. A bald patch.

Hold up. Wait a minute...

There's something not quite right about those last three...

"Oh yeah..."
"Oh yeah..."


OK. Fair point. Who'd have thought things could change so fast?

"Me, sir. Me!"
"Me, sir. Me!"

Except, of course, Depp isn't just having a really bad few months.

Instead, these latest images are fresh from the set of his latest film, Black Mass, in which he plays the aging crime boss James ‘Whitey’ Bulger.

Adapted from Black Mass: The True Story Of An Unholy Alliance Between The FBI And The Irish Mob by Dick Lehr and Gerard O'Neill, the film looks set to allow Depp to escape into yet another outlandish and visually different role.

Something tells us that Whitey Bulger won't become quite as much of a sex symbol as Jack Sparrow, though...

Plus, just in case, here's a picture of Depp from his pre-Bulger days.

Y'know. Just because.

Though I think he stole those glasses from my mom.
