A New Look At Johnny Depp In DARK SHADOWS

I have to admit that I wasn’t that impressed with the first photos we got of Johnny Depp in makeup as Barnabus Collins in Tim Burton’s big screen adaption of the 1970s gothic soap opera Dark Shadows, but I was willing to set aside my reservations until we got something a bit more official. Well, today French film site CineHeroes posted a much more polished picture of Depp and I have to say… I’m still not entirely convinced that the look is right for the part. Check it out below.

I’m sure I’m not the only one here finds that this picture makes Depp look like a 12-year-old, more Pugsley Addams than 200-year-old vampire. Personally, I prefer the picture of Depp and co-star Michelle Pfeiffer that showed up on an Italian site earlier this week. You can’t even tell that it is Depp.
