For The Love Of . . . Johnny Depp?

Disney has released a new trailer for its Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which is the fourth installment of the series. Johnny Depp reprises his role as the fey, wobbling Keith Richards impersonator, while Penelope Cruz plays Angelica, Blackbeard's daughter—and one of Captain Jack Sparrow's past loves, apparently the only woman he ever truly loved.

Very exciting, sure (check out 0:17 seconds in for the first glimpse of Your Favorite Pirate), but even more exciting is that the US Headwear Association has named Johnny Depp the 'hat person of the year.'

Is Johnny Depp your desert island choice? If not, who is?

I enjoy Johnny Depp in the Pirates franchise, I have not cared for his other work. So he would not be my deserted island keeper (I'd rather have Alex O'Laughlin who is easier on the eyes and a little more useful as a former Navy Seal).

Still, Jack Sparrow will forever be welcome in Hawaii as the most recent film was shot on Oahu and Kauai. The Black Pearl (renamed Queen Anne's Revenge) is docked in Ko'Olina for tourists to photograph (same location as the new Disney resort).

Johnny Depp can hang his hat on my rack anyday!! (maybe that was a bit much for 11 am, but I couldn't help it!)

@Kim--I like how practical you are, opting for a Navy SEAL rather than Depp.

And @AlizaMann, Ha! Not too early at all for that kind of sentiment.

I'm afraid Depp doesn't do a thing for me. I'm more of a Denis Quaid circa "The Big Easy" or Paul Newman circa "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" kinda girl. Lord, I'm so showing my age...

I saw this in the movies this weekend (saw Battle for LA, loved it!).

I LOVE Johnny Depp and have since 21 jumpstreet. I still have this poster framed in my office. Swoon!

While I love The Big Easy Quaid (went to school with Dennis and played opposite him in Comedy of Errors -- I even think it was a musical version with pantomimed motorcycles ah la the pantomimed horses of the Much Ado About Nothing sheriff and entourage in the Kenneth Branagh version) one of my favorite movies with Depp as a romantic lead is the little delicious film Chocolat. Also like Finding Neverland, What's Eating Gilbert Grape and of his creepy ones Sleepy Hollow and The Ninth Gate. Of course he is nothing less than stellar in the Pirates series -- who'd watch it except for the eye candy otherwise -- but as a love interest? I think, like Jack, it definitely depends on the lighting.

My desert type? Definitely a story teller and a man of great vigor. Hm-m-m choices, choices, choices.

I saw the trailer this weekend when we went to see Battle for LA. (Awesome movie and Aaron Eckhart was so hot in it!). I cannot wait to see Depp on the big screen again. I've been lovin' this guy this 21 Jumpstreet. I still have this poster framed in my office from JR. High.

I'd take Johnny Depp or Gerard Butler or Richard Armitage or Ioan Gruffudd or all of the above. Sure. But if each of them shows up as a pirate, then it's Depp all the way. Ahem.

"Hat person of the year." Heh.

I love Johnny Depp, but have to go with Josh Holloway ( Sawyer, Lost)
