    I've never watched it. Johnny Depp, Tim Burton, guy with scissors for hands. Surely you can understand my apprehension.

    When it came to casting the lead role of Edward, Fox was insistent on having Burton meet with Tom Cruise. "He certainly wasn't my ideal, but I talked to him", Burton remembered. "He was interesting, but I think it worked out for the best. A lot of questions came up".[11] Cruise wanted the ending to be "happier".[12] Michael Jackson expressed having interest for the role, but was ignored. Tom Hanks then turned it down in favor of The Bonfire of the Vanities. William Hurt and Robert Downey, Jr. had both openly expressed interest.[13]
