Even though it is the limited release for The Corpse Bride coming our way this weekend, I still figured we would begin to receive large amounts of promotion for the film. The one guy we haven't heard a word from during the beginning of The Corpse Bride countdown is none other than the star of the film, Johnny Depp.

Johnny Depp Talks The Corpse Bride

Though I found a lot of the questions more humorous than they were interesting, the latest interview between IESB and Johnny Depp is a great look at what it took to get The Corpse Bride off of the ground. Since Depp and Tim Burton are one of the best-known director-actor BFF's, we should have expected that Depp would have been all abourd this Corpse with his wide range of acting, and voiceover, talents. Remember, it is Johnny Depp who loves nothing more than strange roles; something we greatly appreciate as well.

Q: How did you create the voice?

Depp: Well, everything for Corpse Bride happened very quick. It all happened in about 15-20 minutes literally because I had to finish the day as Wonka. And then right after work, Tim and I would go on over to the studio for the session. So the process lasted about the length of the walk from the soundstage to the recording studio which was pretty quick, where I just grilled him. I said, ‘Okay, where is he from? What do you want him to sound like?' He was born in that little bit of time and I didn't hear him for the first time until he gave me the nod that they were recording. So the preparation for this, I was remiss basically. I should be flogged.

Q: How do you bring a Johnny Depp-ness to a character?

Depp: I think with any character, it all comes from somewhere in there. It starts from some place of truth within you and then I don't know. It's weird. When I read a script, I get these sort of images and stuff as we've talked about before, ideas come to me. And then sometimes the image of people come to me, like with Sleepy Hollow I kept seeing a Roddy McDowell/Angela Lansbury kind of thing. So that became the inspiration. Captain Jack, Keith became the inspiration because I started thinking of pirates as rock stars of the time, the idea that their legend arrived months, maybe years before they did. So you just start taking little tidbits of things and storing them up to use later.
