Johnny Depp has confirmed Dr. Seuss' characters will appear in the forthcoming biopic he is starring in.

The 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' actor is taking on the role of the iconic author - known for books such as 'The Cat In The Hat' - in a forthcoming movie, and he has revealed the creations of the visionary writer will have a part in it.

He said: "It's something we're developing with Seuss' widow, Geisell's widow. It's a very exciting possibility, because it's a combination of live-action and. Not Cat in the Hat so much but just the characters will certainly have a role."

Johnny is also set to take on the role of Tonto in a big-screen movie version of 'The Lone Ranger', and he has revealed he feels like the Native American character is very similar to Captain Jack from the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films.

He said: "What I like about Tonto, what I feel good about Tonto is that I feel like he's-you know when I came up with Captain Jack I thought, 'Okay I've really arrived at something different here,' and Tonto feels right on par with Captain Jack, it feels like another Captain Jack to me."
