“All the amazing people that I’ve worked with - Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman - have told me consistently: don’t compromise. Do your work, and if what you’re giving is not what they want, you have to be prepared to walk away.” —Johnny Depp
Blow (2001) When choosing to portray characters adapted from true stories, Depp tends to lean toward the subversive, and his character in Blow certainly keeps with the trend. Like Donnie Brasco, Blow takes place in the '70s, but this time Depp's character, George Jung, is firmly camped out on the wrong side of the law. Depp gives a fascinating portrayal as "Boston George".
