Cool Videos: Johnny Depp shows up at a fan's school as Jack Sparrow

Oct. 8, 2010by: Paul Tassi

We all know the many actors are famously assholes, rude to the common man, skipping tips to servers and such despite income in the millions.

But there are those actors who also happen to be geniunely great people as well, and understand their classic roles make people happy. While you probably can't make Tom Cruise say "Show me the money!" if you ran into him on the street, Johnny Depp will show up IN COSTUME to your school as Captain Jack Sparrow.

This went down because a young lady named Beatrice wrote Depp a letter hoping he would come by and help her class "stage a mutiny" against their teachers. Well Depp was in town shooting PIRATES 4, and decided to stop by the school and answer her request in person. No teachers ended up walking the plank, but it was a really damn cool thing for him to do. Check out the video below:

Extra Tidbit: A similar Depp story from a few years ago: "And on November 29, unknown to the public, Depp spent four hours at the hospital telling bedtime stories to patients dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow after having his Pirates Of The Caribbean costume flown over from Los Angeles."

Awesome to see!

The guy is a class act all the way. Very generous and in my mind a dying breed of man let alone celebrity.

What I love is that this isn't some publicity stunt. I can see actors doing this stuff just to get attention to their films. Depp obviously did this as a genuinely kind thing since as someone has mentioned it was only filmed by camera phone. I have heard a lot of great things this guy has done that I think most people wouldn't even think of doing. His mind is truly set on making the world a better place and I love him for that. Thank you Depp for setting a great example. He is officially my

I always like to believe that the actors I like on film are also likable in real life, and it's always very disheartening when they say or do things that show they are not. So when a person like Johnny Depp does something like this it renews my faith that generosity and goodness are not always an act.

Talk about just about the coolest thing An A lister can do.

That is something those kids will remember for the rest of their lives. If only there were more actors who would do things like that we might actually not have a fit to spend over $100 bucks to go see a movie w/4 people. Seriously Mr. Depp YOU RULE!

What a truly great guy! I had heard about it on the radio but didn't realise footage was online! Even if the movie sucks, he will still be a truly decent guy.

Dude is a class-act
