    Johnny Depp tops Forbes' list of Hollywood's Most Overpaid Actors 2015

    Johnny Depp was named by Forbes as Hollywood’s Highest Paid Actor after several clunkers including ‘Mortdecai.’
    All in all, Johnny Depp would probably prefer an Oscar.

    Forbes bestowed the dubious honor of Hollywood’s most overpaid actor in 2015, calculating that the A-lister only returns $1.20 for every $1 he’s paid.

    The list covers the last three films an actor starred in before this past June — before his acclaimed turn in “Black Mass,” the biopic about Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, was released.

    Depp may be earning Academy Award buzz around that performance, but his last few movies, including “Mortdecai” and “Transcendence” proved to be box office duds.

    yeah, that was pretty bad, huh. I still love Depp, but he's clearly been out of his gourd this last decade regarding script selection.

    The Whitey Bulger movie wasn't that good. The Departed blows it away.

    I gotta blame the idiot at Disney who okayed that vanity project for Depp. Who really thought a Lone Ranger movie would make a dime with today's audience...and then to write a blank check for it? The mind boggles.

    Depp had one of the best and longest runs ever from the beginning of his career to about 2005. He started getting those big Pirates paychecks and went for the money for the most part after that, and on the smaller movies didn't have very good directors. The only movie of his I've looked forward to in years (but didn't bother to see unfortunately) was Black Mass.

    That was on the news this morning. Good to see Will Smith on the list. I find him to be a pompous asshole.

    I think they're all over paid. I've literally saved lives and I have ten bucks in the bank.

    One of his best recent performances was on this season's Overhaulin. He dressed as Capt. Jack with some Willie Wonka thrown in. His smoking hot GF Amanda Heard was tricked into thinking her prize Mustang was parted out. He may garner an Emmy for this legendary guest spot.
