Johnny Depp It seems Terry Gilliam managed to avoid sending his upcoming directorial effort THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR. PARNASSUS into an unfortunate production hell after the shocking death of Heath Ledger, who was starring in the film. There were rumors that given the film's magical elements, Gilliam could save the film and preserve Ledger's final performance by simply casting someone else and use an appropriately fantastical explanation for the discrepancy. Well, according to AICN, that's exactly what he did. In fact, he cast three actors in the role - JoBlo.com man crush Johnny Depp, British man meat Jude Law and Irish man candy Colin Farrell. They all likely offered their services as a personal tribute to Ledger.

Extra Tidbit: With these kinda names, it has to get a wide-ish release.

Heath! Johnny! Jude! And...huh???

Well...this was a very, very hard decision for me to make between being hip or neutral to this news, BECAUSE...

A--Heath Ledger, period. *sniffle*
B--Johnny Depp, period.
C--Jude Law, period.
D--Colin Farrell--what the hell?

How does Colin Farrel have ANYTHING in common with Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, or Jude Law? I mean, he's a good actor, but he's just this...scruffy Irish midget, and practically nothing next to the multifaceted (and not to mention ultra-handsome) trio of other

I mean, he's a good actor, but he's just this...scruffy Irish midget, and practically nothing next to the multifaceted (and not to mention ultra-handsome) trio of other actors playing this role. I sure hope that Farrell's screen time will be for the part when Dr. Parnassus gets sent through a dimension that warps everything and makes it all short and ugly...and that said part is only about 10 minutes or less...

I'm sorry, but let me say it again: Heath Ledger. Johnny Depp. Jude Law.

...and then Colin Farrell? Um, no.

HOORAY!

I'm glad we'll get to see Ledger's last role and after the rumors of Johnny Depp stepping in, I was extremely psyched. But now, we get Depp, PLUS Law and Farrell. Depp and Law are pretty amazing. I was still a bit mixed on Farrell but ever since I watched "In Bruges" I can't imagine NOT being behind anything he does (within reason).
