Johnny Depp is asked about quitting acting. He Answers

While out promoting his new animated film, Rango, Johnny Depp was asked what it would take for him to quit acting. Surprisingly, he had an answer.

Also surprising, why someone would ask him that?

“I’m going to have to play (King) Leer or (Don) Quixote or something. It would have to be something like that. And then just walk away,” he said. Thankfully he added, “but there’s still some stuff definitely that I’d like to do out there. There’s certain books that I’ve been in love with for years that I’d love to bring to life – things like Tom Robbins ‘Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates,’ that’s a great, great book. We’re in the works now to put ‘The Ginger Man’ by JP Donleavy up, get that on its feet, so that’s a very exciting possibility.”

On another note, in Rango, where he plays a chameleon who aspires to be a swashbuckling hero, he said he felt a bit “silly” during the filming. “It was fun, but you couldn’t help feel ridiculous. You know, you’re a middle aged man pretending like you’re dragging this tail around behind you. Or like (co-star)Harry Dean Stanton comes up to you and he’s like, ‘hey man, this is kind of a weird gig, isn’t it?’ and you’re thinking, ‘Oh just wait, we just started, Harry.’”
