Johnny's Depp's favourite EVER role - his Fast Show cameo appearance

Via

He’s played Edward Scissorhands, Captain Jack Sparrow, Sweeney Todd and Willy Wonka – but none of these roles were the highlight of Johnny Depp’s career.

Instead, the Hollywood actor, 51, reckons his cameo in the last ever episode of the Fast Show was his peak performance.

“It was absolutely one of my proudest achievements,” Johnny says.

“No question. It was one of my favourite things, to have been on the last Fast Show.”

In the 1997 episode, Johnny played a customer who was subjected to a series of incredibly personal questions from the innuendo-loving tailors Ken and Kenneth.

In the last ever sketch in the last ever episode (until it returned for a couple of one offs) Johnny uttered their catchphrase “ooh, suits you” as he thrusted with the pair.

But the Fast Show isn’t the only Brit/Irish fixation Johnny has.

After basing Jack Sparrow on Keith Richards, and emulating Shane MacGowan for his character in Chocolat, the star has modelled his latest English character, Charles Mortdecai, on The Pink Panther’s Peter Sellers.

Johnny plays a moustached art dealer, and says: “It was a great salute to those actors that were able to pull off that kinda comedy in a caper film.

"Peter Sellers certainly, and a great deal is based on Terry Thomas. He’s always been a favourite.”

Being very lah-di-dah in social circles helped Johnny perfect his dialect, who swigged from a can of Red Bull as he chatted to 3am in London’s Corinthia Hotel.

“There’s so many accents in this country,” he says.

“There’s the West Country accent and I’ve spent a lot of time in London. You end up sitting with some aristocrat – having spent time around that sort of men helped make Mortdecai’s accent.”
